Who we are


Robyn's Nest founded in 2004, is a small grass roots animal rescue, dedicated to helping the stray, abandoned and abused animals in Nashville and surrounding areas. Our 501(c)3 application is currently pending. Our secondary goal is to assist and educate the residents in the area on proper care for their animals. Such as the importance of spaying and neutering your animals and providing your pets with the proper vet care and upkeep, discouraging the tethering of dogs 24/7, our motto is all dogs should be indoor dogs with outdoor privileges. Since November of 2004 over 1800 animals have been rescued. The animals enjoy a full rich life here until their forever home comes along. All the animals are completely vetted and kept current on their vaccinations. When old enough and healthy enough, all animals are spayed/neutered before going to their new forever homes. While under our care they receive training, socialization and loving care.  


Our mission is to protect the welfare of the animals we come in contact with, and to promote the humane treatment and well being of these animals by:


·  Providing shelter and medical care for stray or abandoned animals in Nashville , TN and surrounding areas.


·  Responding with personal commitment, humane sensitivity, compassion, and technical skill to the needs of these animals;

·  Actively promoting suitable adoptions of the animals;


·  Encouraging the spay and neutering of dogs and cats to ensure the numbers of unwanted animals be kept to a minimum; and helping to prevent cruelty to animals by promoting animal welfare and education. 


·  Robyn's Nest Animal Rescue is a group of volunteer animal lovers whose mission is to rescue, provide sanctuary, and ultimately to re-home abandoned, stray and neglected animals. 


·  A volunteer organization that operates on individual and corporate donations and fundraising proceeds. We do not receive any funding from government agencies or national animal welfare agencies. We are very fortunate to have a caring and dedicated team of volunteers, board members, and supporters. 


·  Whenever possible we also assist those who, because of extenuating circumstances, are unable to remain in their homes with their owners. We are located in the Nashville , TN area.


·  All are housed or fostered in homes where they are provided with an enormous amount of love and any medical attention that may be required to insure that they are in good health before adoption. 


·  All dogs/cats are spayed or neutered and brought up-to-date on shots before being placed in their new homes. When time permits, they are also house trained, crate trained and taught basic obedience. 

·  All animals are evaluated for temperament and personality. This helps us to place them in homes that are well suited to their needs and to the needs of their future owners. 


·  We work closely with other rescue groups and animal shelters.


·  To promote responsible pet ownership through humane education, and to provide shelter and care to domestic companion animals until a loving, responsible home can be found, or lost pets are reunited with their guardians.
