Made In The Shade 2013
Our 3rd annual "Made In The Shade" event will be held on Saturday, July 13th from 11:00am - 2:00pm. Volunteers will deliver free supplies including tarps, dog houses, cedar shavings, water buckets, pools, and durable dog toys to neglected, chained, and penned dogs in and around Nashville. We will also create shaded spaces for these animals, and open a dialog with their owners in an effort to permanently improve the quality of life for these animals.
You can help in the following ways:
- Donate your time - e-mail us to volunteer. You can also send info on dogs in need to this address.
- Donate supplies - you can use the above link to donate supplies directly OR see our wish list on Amazon! You'll find everything we need right there!
- Spread the word - download the MITS poster and put it up wherever you can (Thanks to Jen Kilgore for another beautiful design!)

We almost got to all 36 on the list but, unfortunately, 6 volunteers cancelled the night before and so we were a little short. Even so, we consider the event to be a great success! Read More...
