Uma's Story....Uma arrived at a high kill shelter, not once, but twice. She was adopted out to a family who took her to a veterinarian and then found out she was heartworm positive. The family brought her back stating they didn't want to have to take care of her. She was only hours away from euthanasia when an email went out and ended up in the hands of a volunteer for Nashville PITTIE. After several email correspondences, we were finally approved to transport Uma to Nashville for a much deserved wonderful life. Uma is now safe and in the loving care of a foster.
She has successfully completed her heartworm treatment, is fully vaccinated, crate and house trained. She has learned basic commands and is always eager to learn more. Uma is silly girl that loves attention. She loves to snuggle and takes full advantage of every opportunity, even with strangers. She makes silly noises and faces that will keep you laughing for hours. She is still very young so does require someone that is active and enjoys devoting time just for her. She does not do well in the company of cats and would prefer an adult household with no children. She is the sweetest girl and very deserving of a loving, forever home. Meet her and you're sure to fall in love.

Rescue Group Info...
Nashville PITTIE was founded by Jana Mandes, a lifelong animal advocate. Jana has been a pit bull guardian for most of her life, with an inherent love of animals and a commitment to making a difference for pit bulls and the communities in which they live. Frustrated with always being on the “defense” and seeing the suffering they endure, we decided to take action to improve these animals’ lives as well as the public perception of the dogs that we know as intelligent, playful, and loyal family pets.
Nashville PITTIE is not a rescue in the traditional sense. We noticed a trend in Nashville’s animal welfare community where a lot of wonderful caring folks opened their hearts, homes, and wallets to rescue efforts and almost immediately became overwhelmed with pleas for help. Too often they find themselves in a vicious cycle of having more animals in need than there is help available. Nashville PITTIE ‘s aim is to get ahead of the issue and prevent homelessness, neglect, and abuse before it happens. The best way to achieve that is through community education and promotion of spay/neuter programs.
Nashville PITTIE is an all Volunteer organization. If you are interested in volunteering, please email email@example.com
