Before I get to the exciting weekend happenings, do you know about our September partnership?
In celebration of our 3 year anniversary at Adrian Hitt Dogography, we want to support our amazing friends at New Leash On Life. They suffered a great loss during the May floods and for each session that is booked during the month of September*, Adrian Hitt Dogography is donating $50 to New Leash On Life. *Includes sessions for any future date as long as it is booked during this month.
Wow it really is mid-September already, isn’t it!? Evidently, mid-September means great events to support the animals! Here are 3 fun options for an awesome Saturday, September 18th:
Come visit us at the 21st Annual Dog Day Festival and Music City Mutt Strutt Dog Walk.
Here is an event you will definitely want to bring your leashed doggie to! There is so much going on at Dog Day Festival in Centennial Park. The day begins with the Music City Mutt Strutt at 9am (registration begins at 8am) benefiting Nashville Humane Association. Plan to stay for a full day including live entertainment, contests, community vendor booths, agility demonstrations, dog spa, doggie arts and crafts, and plenty of socializing for your pups. If your pet isn’t microchipped yet be sure to stop by the Microchip Clinic from 11am-1pm aboard Nashville Humane’s Rover ($25 per animal). Adrian Hitt Dogography is at Booth #10 so please come say hello! We will have a drawing for a $250 gift card and some goodies for you or your pups!
Rock to the Rescue for Agape Animal Rescue
Nashville Paw and Agape Animal Rescue have teamed up with Hard Rock Café in downtown Nashville for a night of great music and fun. The event is from 6pm-9pm with The Cold Stares playing 6:30 – 7:30pm and Duncan May & the Resonators on stage from 8:00 – 9:00pm. There is also a short live auction, and from what I hear, they have some pretty great items up for grabs! Have you been to Hard Rock since it has been renovated? It is incredible! You will have to leave the pups at home for this night on the town, but the rooftop patio views and great rock music will be worth it! Visit Nashville Paw Magazine here for details and tickets!
Happy Tales Humane is Ridin’ Happy
Happy Tales Humane has a unique event for this beautiful weekend! Motorcycle enthusiasts can register for the Ride Happy motorcycle ride at Harley Davidson Cool Springs in Franklin from noon to 2:00pm. The ride will follow the scenic route from Cool Springs to the very awesome Loveless Barn where Hank III will rev up the biker and non-biker crowd with a live show at 6pm. Visit Happy Tales Humane here for more details.
