It has been a tough few weeks for Nashville, for the country, and for the world. Small businesses are struggling to stay afloat, people are trying to rebuild their homes, many Americans are losing their jobs, and we are all forced to stay in as we fight through this pandemic. Despite all this turmoil, beauty and kindness have remained.
We decided to flip the script and shine our spotlight, while we can, on some of the kindness that we have witnessed from others because Kindness Isn’t Canceled. To grab your exclusive shirt, click here.
Today we have a story for all those animal lovers out there. Since we are all essentially stuck at home for the near future, New Yorkers turned out in droves earlier last month to support a cause that is near and dear to our hearts. Animal shelters across the United States have been reporting an increase of people readily available and eager to foster a dog, during this time; however, New York City really came through.
When the Animal Care Centers of NYC put out a call for applications to its fostering program, which had 200 slots available, over 2000 New Yorkers applied. It is believed that because many of us are working from home now or unfortunately unable to work, we are seeking a furry companion to get us through this time. We might be providing a dog with a home, but as always, they are providing us humans with the friendship and kindness we need during this time of isolation.
According to Foster Dogs INC., they are now focusing their efforts on continuing to support the foster parents and dogs, during this crisis. If you wish to donate to this worthy cause, click here, and visit their website at
