Annual ‘Paw Classic’ hockey tournament raises money for homeless animals


The Annual Paws Classic hockey tournament at Ford Ice Center on Tuesday raised nearly $2,000 for homeless animals.  

The hockey tournament benefited Metro Animal Care and Control. Teams suited up in vintage jerseys, used wooden hockey sticks and vied for the “Dog Bowl” trophy.  

The Shelter Cup founder, Jeff Mendolla, said when he moved to Nashville, he wanted to find a way to blend his love of hockey with helping animals.  

Attendees also brought in items from MACC’s Amazon wish list, like peanut butter, blankets, toys and treats.
