Hotel to home
Pets for Patriots has joined forces with Bobby Nashville and Nashville Humane Association to match well-mannered canine companions with veterans in the community.
Our work builds upon Bobby Nashville’s Dog-In-Residence Pet Program, where one very lucky dog at a time is selected in collaboration with Nashville Humane to receive socialization and training before being made available for adoption.
Each ‘Bobby dog’ spends daytime hours at the hotel, goes home nightly with an employee, and learns basic manners and obedience through one of Nashville’s premier dog training experts. In a few months the dog is ready to check out of the hotel to be a faithful companion to an area veteran.
I was Bobby Nashville’s most recent dog-in-residence until I adopted a Navy family in June 2023. I can ‘shake’ with both paws, and I love kids, babies, dogs (even cats!) almost as much as I love peanut butter – yum!
