Roughly 66 people arrive in Nashville each day, ready to call this great place their home. Along for the ride? Their pets, of course!

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, 36.5% of American households have dogs and 30% have cats. While pet ownership numbers for the Nashville area are not readily available, it is safe to say pets are an important part in our ever-growing city.

Here at News 2, we are all about pets — from cats to dogs to rabbits to gerbils — we love them all! That’s why we partner with Metro Animal Care and Control all the time to help fur babies find their forever families. 

Whether it’s the latest information on pet food recalls and safety information or our weekly Pets of the Week or Pet Doc segments, News 2 is dedicated to providing coverage both you and your pets can count on. 

Thursday is National Pet Day, and News 2 is marking the occasion with special reports all day Thursday, in every newscast. We’re calling it “Petpalooza,” and our coverage will take you inside cat cafes designed to enhance pet adoption, explore realistic ways to trim veterinary bills and dig deeper into the impact pets have on happiness and health for humans. 

And don’t forget, News 2 is teaming up with Metro Animal Care and Control for $2-dollar adoption fees this week!
