In a series of videos on social media, each celebrity shares why they support Pet Community Center and encourages others to donate to the cause. In one such video, singer-songwriter, Jamie O’Neal, along with her two dogs, Chelsea and Libby, says, “I can’t imagine what it’s like to have to surrender your beloved pets because you can no longer afford to keep them. At Pet Community Center in Nashville, that’s exactly what they’re trying to end – pet homelessness – and give access to those who need it the most to take care of their furry friends.”
Pet Community Center’s, President and CEO, Amy Waller shares, “It is both heartwarming and humbling to have such a star-studded lineup of celebrity advocates in support of Pet Community Center’s first-ever Pawlidays campaign. The visibility they are bringing to Pet Community Center’s year-end call to action will enable us to raise mission-critical funds to help us support our community and end pet homelessness.”
Pet Community Center (PCC) operates a high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter and vaccine clinic in East Nashville. Serving thousands of animals annually, PCC focuses on the health and well-being of animals in Nashville. Additionally, Pet Community Center is tackling barriers to veterinary care and provides additional support to pet owners in zip codes with the highest rates of pet homelessness. The results of PCC’s work include lower pet homelessness rates, lower shelter intake and euthanasia rates, and increased access to veterinary care for pets in poverty.
