The goal of Better Cities for Pets is to make Greater Nashville, and cities all over the U.S., become healthy, happy places for people and pets in four key areas of focus; shelters, homes, businesses and parks. Mars Petcare's commitment to; public health and the connections between people and pets in Shaping the Healthy Community and reclaiming public space are exciting and we look forward to contributing to pilot projects and testing new initiatives being developed in and around Nashville.
Mars Petcare is also partnering with The US Conference of Mayors, Metropolitan Government of Nashville & Davidson County, Mayor's Advisory Council on Animal Welfare, Downtown Franklin Association and many more.
