Hay Day 2014

Heart HayDay 2015 Date Change!

Hay Day 2015 Poster

Due to the weather, Heart HayDay 2015 has been moved to Saturday, February 28. There's still time to join us as we show some love and deliver free supplies to neglected, chained, and penned dogs in Nashville. Each volunteer will go out in a small group with an experienced team lead to deliver supplies including Hay/Straw, Dog Coats, Dog Toys, and Dog Treats.

We need donations and volunteers! (straw can be purchased at Home Depot or Lowes for around $5.00/bale) or you can donate through our Amazon Wish List.
