Meet Our Volunteers
Gail, Bonni, and Barbara
As you pull into the parking lot you may not notice it at first, but Happy Retales—Brentwood, Tennessee’s elite pet destination—is nestled among the businesses at Creekside Crossing. Walking through the front door, you are met with everything you could imagine for your furbabies. Collars, leashes, treats, custom breed blankets and an endless selection of food options—it’s a pet heaven! Within moments, you are greeted with a sincere, southern welcome from one of the smiling faces of Gail, Bonni, and Barbara!
Gail, Bonni, and Barbara are volunteers with Adopt a Golden Nashville. For a collective 20 years, they have given their time, talent, and passion to Happy Retales on behalf of Adopt a Golden Nashville. Happy Retales is unlike other local pet stores—they generously pledge to donate 100% of their store’s profits to animal rescues. They partner with organizations like AGN. In return, each rescue provides volunteers to work at the store. It’s a major win-win for everyone!
At Adopt a Golden Nashville, we have been honored to have these three women dedicate countless hours to help support our mission and dedication to rescue, care, evaluation, and placement of abandoned or unwanted golden retrievers in middle Tennessee, southern Kentucky and northern Alabama. Nearly $33,000 has been donated to our rescue due in part to their volunteered hours at Happy Retales.
When asked what fellow Adopt a Golden Nashville volunteers can do they said, “Offer your time to be a Happy Retales helper. It is an incredible opportunity to give back, spread the word of our Golden rescue, and make some really amazing friends along the way!”
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Adopt a Golden Nashville is shining light on Gail, Bonni, and Barbara for their remarkable service and selflessness to devote time and energy to the greater well-being of golden retrievers in our rescue and animal rescue as a whole. Please join us in recognizing and thanking them for their combined 20 years of volunteerism!
