Movers for Mutts 2017: Photo and Video Contest

Nashville Movers for Mutts 2017 photo video contest

Although Nashville is known as one of America’s most pet-friendly cities, there are still hundreds of homeless pets living in the Nashville Humane Association each year, just waiting to find their forever home.  At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we host an annual Movers for Mutts charity to collect needed supplies and donations for this amazing pet shelter! This year, we’ve decided to take advantage of our city’s natural creativity and artistry to host our first ever photo and video contest, where all the entry fee donations will benefit the NHA.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville Humane AssociationNashville Humane Association has a very special place in our hearts, not because they have adorable furry animals to cuddle and love, but also because they strive to protect the well-being of animals. Spay and neutering services can come at a very steep price, and adoption fees can also be a barrier to animals needing a forever home. We love supporting the NHA because they offer resources for pet owners to find affordable veterinary care for their fur babies, as well as regular discounts on their adoption fees. In their adoption cost, they include all mandatory vaccinations (such as the rabies vaccine) and spay/neuter services for pets who are old enough to receive them so you don’t have to worry about the veterinary costs piling up immediately.

We hope you’ll submit an entry to our Movers for Mutts Photo & Video contest and help us support this great organization! Our contest will run all throughout the month of September, and we will announce the winners on our social media networks on October 6th. The top three photo and video submissions will win luxury pet products from local businesses, including:

We want to see the funniest, most adorable, and bragging rights-worthy photo or video of your pet! Beginning September 1, here is how to enter and win:

Step 1: Visit bit.ly/NHAcontest (case-sensitive, so caps matter!) to make your entry fee donation.

Step 2: Take a screenshot of the confirmation page for your donation.

Step 3: Upload your screenshot and favorite photo or video on the submission page.

Step 4: Get your friends to vote, vote, vote!  Submissions and voting close at 11:59 pm on September 30!

If you have other questions about the contest or NHA’s amazing work in our community, give us a call or text at 615-248-6288.

Meet Our “Pupbassadors,” Jax and Hersh!

Jax and Hersh are our "pupbassadors" for the Tiny But Mighty Fund!

From November 12-December 12, we’re working with 39 other Pup Partners to see who can raise the most money for the Tiny But Mighty Fund!  At the end of the fundraiser, most of the total donations will be given to the Nashville Humane Association, with $1,000 of the donations going to an animal welfare nonprofit of the winning company’s choice.  As you know, we love the Nashville Humane Association, so we’re hoping to have all of the donations benefit that great organization!

Now, we could plaster pictures of our sweaty movers all over the internet to try to raise money, but goodness knows our movers’ puppies are a whole lot cuter to look at.  So please meet our new “Pupbassadors” for the Tiny But Mighty Fund…  Jax and Hersh!  After a brutal Facebook contest where our office staff’s dogs competed against one another for the Pupbassador title, we ended up having a tie for the most “likes” on Jax and Hersh’s pictures.  Instead of having a run-off election, we decided it would be fitting to have two representatives for our company–after all, we are TWO Men and a Truck Nashville!

Jax and Hersh belong to Donald, our Office Manager.  Although these pooches aren’t biologically related, they are definitely brothers and best buddies!  Donald and his wife adopted Hersh in May 2014 from Nashville’s Metro Animal Care and Control department.  Donald explains, “I got off work early one day and just went over there to see the dogs.  When I saw Hersh, I knew I had to take him home.  I called my wife right away!”

Just five short months later, Donald knew it was time to rescue another homeless pet.  They wanted Hersh to have someone to keep him company during the day and someone he could play with at the dog parks every weekend.  Donald and his wife went to the Nashville Humane Association and experienced “love at first sight” when they saw Jax.  “We had actually already introduced Hersh to about a dozen adoptable dogs, but he wasn’t having any of it,” Donald says.  But fortunately, “as soon as he saw Jax, he ran over and they started playing.”

We’re so glad these two fur babies found their Furrever Family!  Please join us in raising money for the Tiny But Mighty Fund so we can find homes for other homeless pets in our community!  Jax and Hersh may only be 3 feet tall, but they can make a huge impact on animal welfare in Nashville.  Please click here to make any donation amount to help our Pupbassadors prove they are tiny but mighty!
