We know that times are hard for everyone these days and sometimes making donations may seem impossible, but here are a few ways you can help Music City Animal Rescue by doing what you already do!

1. Amazon Smile - if you shop with Amazon there is no better way to donate to MCAR than by joining the Amazon Smile program.  A portion of your purchases is donated to the rescue thru this program AND it gives you special discounts on lots of purchases.  By clicking on the Amazon logo above, you can go directly to the MCAR Amazon Wish List.  Check it out!

2.  Kroger Community Rewards - it's not just for fuel points.  By setting up a Kroger account and joining their community rewards program, money is sent quarterly to MCAR based on your purchases with Kroger.  The more families that join, the more money we receive.  It does NOT take away from your fuel points, those accumulate as they always do, this is just a bonus giving opportunity!  We are listed as Music City Animal Rescue.  Sign up and save!!

3.  Do you shop for your pets online at CHEWY.COM?  If so, did you know that they have a giving program for rescues?  Music City Animal Rescue is an approved partner.  Log into your Chewy account and search Music City Animal Rescue under FIND A RESCUE.  We have a wish list that includes items from gift cards to cat litter and lots of different pet food and wee wee pads.  CLICK THE CHEWY LOGO HERE TO CONNECT TO OUR WISH LIST

4.  ADOPT -  You are not only providing a safe loving home for an animal in need, but you are adding a new member to your family.  A family member who offers you unconditional love and acceptance and will be there for you ALWAYS.  

If you have fallen in love with one of the babies in our foster program and want to consider making them a part of your home,

click the DOG ADOPTION APPLICATION BUTTON or the CAT ADOPTION APPLICATION BUTTON to complete an application or visit our "Adopt Don't Shop" page.

5.  FOSTER - there are few things in life more rewarding than being a link between a sad, lonely, neglected life ( or often death) and a safe, loving forever home.  That is what a foster home provides for animals in need.  There is no substitute for providing an abandoned, abused or neglected animal a safe refuge until that magic moment when their new life begins with their very own family.  Fostering is a huge help to a rescue like MCAR that is completely foster-home based.   If you would consider fostering and/or would like more information, please click the FOSTER HOMES NEEDED BUTTON and complete a foster application.  Someone will be in contact with you soon.  CHECK OUT OUR NEW UNICORN FOSTER PROGRAM!

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.
