Our Featured Pet...

VIDA-SUE  was found on the side of the road; she'd recently had puppies, and then been hit by a car... from her injuries, we suspect she'd been hit more than once in the past few weeks. She had multiple fractures in her pelvic region, numerous skin abrasion (road burn?), a skin yeast infection, a urinary tract infection, and she was terribly underweight.

On the plus side, she's heartwork negative, so we're grateful for that much. All her problems are/were treatable. We've been feeding her several small meals a day, and she's gained more than nine pounds! Medicated baths three times a week are knocking out the skin infection, and antibiotics cured the UTI. She wasn't a candidate for surgery, but she's doing better after several weeks of rest, and she's started physical therapy to finish the repair.

From the first moment we saw her, she's been nothing but grateful, sweet, and loving. She must have been in terrible pain, but she's not snapped or growled at any touching or examination... she thrives on being petted, stroked, talked to, and belly-rubbed. When all her medical treatments are finished, she's going to be someone's Best Dog Ever!

Y'all were so great to help with Bastian Fontanel (now all paid for, all fixed up, and hopefully soon to go to his forever home), we dare to believe we will be able to afford to fix Vida-Sue, as well... with your continued support.

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 secondary goal is to assist and educate residents in the area on proper care for their animals: the importance of spaying and neutering your animals, providing your pets with the proper vet care and upkeep, discouraging the tethering of dogs.
Since November of 2004 over 1800 animals (dogs, cats, horses, raccoons, deer, foxes, cows, turtles and frogs, just to name a few) have been rescued. All the animals are completely vetted and kept current on their vacinations. 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.
We are currently working on obtaining our 501(c) status.

Mission Statement
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.
