MCAR is proud to partner with


Music City Animal Rescue is a 501(c)3 animal rescue that is completely foster home based.  This means that we have no brick and mortar facility where rescued animals stay while looking for their forever homes.  Any animal that is taken into the MCAR program lives with a foster family.  There, they are fully vetted, loved, and socialized.  They are introduced to as many new people and other animals and circumstances as possible.  They are potty trained, if needed and taught basic commands.  In turn, we get to learn a lot about every little one that comes to us.  This is valuable knowledge when it comes to finding that "perfect" home for them.

When it comes time for these babies to meet everyone and find their own loving home, we rely on several avenues to provide everyone with their information. is a great source to locate all of our pets (dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, etc...) that are ready to be adopted.  It gives basic information about each pet along with photos and a way to contact MCAR if you are interested.  We also post on our Music City Animal Rescue Facebook page.  Here you can see not only the babies ready for adoption, but you can get sneak-peaks at those that will be ready soon and find out where you can set up a meet and greet.

Our adoption coordinators are happy to set up individual meetings for you and a particular pet (in fact, prior to any adoption, we most often, will conduct a home visit), however; one of the best ways to get to meet a pet, introduce them to your family (including your current furry family) is to visit us at one of our adoption locations.

Music City Animal Rescue is proud to say that we are both PETCO and PETSMART partners.  This means that we hold adoptions events periodically at designated Petco and PetSmart stores around the area.  Currently, are primary locations are:

PETCO located at 3536 Murfreesboro Rd. in Antioch, TN. 

PETSMART located at 2201 Gallatin Pike N, Madison, TN.

If you are looking for a new furry family member, we hope that you will consider Music City Animal Rescue.  If you have a heart for animals and would like to be one of our fabulous foster homes (or just want more info. about fostering), please visit our foster/volunteer page.  You can complete a foster application (this does not obligate you should you change your mind).  This application allows one of our coordinators to contact you to answer any questions you may have and to discuss the many life-changing and rewarding aspects of opening your heart and home to an animal in need.  We are currently in desperate need of foster homes for cats/kittens as well as puppies/dogs.  We would love to have you as part of our MCAR family.
