Art for Animals

A variety of local art is up for auction this weekend during the Art for Animals benefit for Pet Community Center.

If you love pets and local art, then you’ll love Art for Animals. Make it a night on the town and head out to Pet Community Center’s (PCC) 11th Annual Art for Animals. It takes place at The Factory at Franklin (230 Franklin Road, Franklin) on Saturday, Sept. 15.

Art for Animals

Art for Animals is one of Nashville’s long-running and most popular fundraisers, offering a live auction of exclusive artwork and a silent auction of local gifts and experiences. The goal is to raise $100,000 in donations through the event. The event features an open bar with a signature cocktail, dinner, dedicated seating and entertainment. Let’s not forget about the live auction. Prizes include a week-long stay in a two-bedroom villa at the esteemed Esperanza Resort in Cabo San Lucas; tickets to an upcoming taping of CMT’s Crossroads; a pair of premium tickets to see Lynyrd Skynyrd in ANY city in 2018 on their upcoming Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour and more.

All proceeds benefit spay and neuter and animal saving programs. General admission is $75, patron admission is $125. Get your tickets at

Pet Community Center

This nonprofit organization aims to strengthen the human-animal bond through accessible veterinary care and support services serving Middle Tennessee. They offer affordable and no-cost spay/neuter services in addition to low-cost veterinary care and the Cat Community Program. Natalie Corwin, President/CEO of PCC says, “We performed our first spay/neuter surgery in 2011 and since that time we’ve helped 55,000 dogs and cats, the shelter intake rate has dropped by half and euthanasia has gone from over 80% to 14%.  I’m very proud of what we’ve accomplished for Nashville’s animals.”
