Metro Nashville Animal Care and Control is marking National Mutt Day by waiving adoption fees.
Shelter leaders hope by waiving fees for the day, more people will be motivated to adopt mixed breed dogs.
National Mutt Day celebrates mixed breed dogs every year on July 31 and again on December 2.
According to the holiday’s website, mixed breed dogs tend to be healthier, better behaved and live longer than pure-bred dogs.
