Although this is not an official adoption event, all puppies are available for adoption through NHA following the event.

That’s when the Nashville Humane Association, in partnership with VUMC, presented its first “Paws on the Plaza” event, which is set to bring a litter of puppies to the plaza each month from May through October.

Get ready for a regular dose of adorable when the Nashville Humane Association begins bringing puppies to the VUMC Plaza once a month for employees to interact with.
