We are excited to share that our #AgapeMVP for April is our fearless leader, Founder and Executive Director, Tanya Willis! 🏆

It is impossible to thank Tanya enough for all that she does for Agape. We quite literally would not be here without her! We are incredibly grateful to have a director who is so passionate, kind, and dedicated. Here she shares the reason she started Agape, one of her favorite adoption stories, and more!

A couple weeks ago we created and assembled floral centerpieces for the Pet Community Center Art for Animals fundraiser. The glassware was sourced from Turnip Green Creative Reuse and all the arrangements were available to attendees after the event for an additional donation. Each arrangement was slightly different, but all beautiful and unique.

These fabulous photos are by Mandy Whitley Photography.

Nashville based pets and their people photographer. Thanks for visiting the page of Mandy Whitley Photography! I am so excited about photographing you and your pets!

I am passionate about both photography and animals, so it is only natural for my photography business to be focused on "pets and their people." I love the way animals bring out the best in people, and whether I'm photographing a family, an engagement, or a wedding I think it's important to include ALL the family members - including the furry ones! My husband David and I have five rescue animals an

Operating as usual


Anyone else have a big soft spot for these little guys? Happy from Floyd and Otis!

Is it me, or are Christy and Harley both smiling in this photo?


It's the Nashville Sounds opening day so I thought sharing these photos from the Sounds field in collaboration with Tito's Handmade Vodka & Agape Animal Rescue & Training Center would be the perfect blog to share today!

The Whitley pack has one member less today. This weekend we said goodbye to our Don Draper.

We got the diagnosis in October that he had cancer, and we have had almost 6 bonus months with him. For that, we are grateful.

We fostered Don as a tiny puppy with East C.A.N. in 2011. He was adopted by a couple, then a year later returned (through no fault of his own), and we fostered him again. This time he didn’t leave. I feel so fortunate that I have baby and teenage photos of him, even though he didn’t officially become ours until he was over a year old.

What can I say about this guy. He was a catcher and destroyer of frisbees, a maker of leaf tacos, BFF to Rollo, friend to Liam, giver of amazing head smashes, and our home security system. He was always looking for food, to the point that he would rest his heavy head on your leg during meals. He didn’t like storms and so was also our weather predictor, hiding in the closet long before rain actually came. He only wanted to be petted on his terms.

Don Draper, Donny D, D Drape, Donald.

Regal, handsome, such a good boy.

10 years was too short and we miss you so much. We love you Don Draper.


“Dogs’ lives are too short. Their only fault, really.” -Agnes Sligh Trumbull. Celebrating the life of sweet Harley on the blog this week. ❤️


Spring minis are off to a great start! More spots are available on 4.2 and 4.10, message me for details. 😊


Happy from sweet 11 week old Goldendoodles, Mulligan and Fedzui!


A celebration of life on the blog today! Sweet Harley and his human Christy 😍😍


Spring minis with our gorgeous yellow forsythia bush - yes please!! This spring I'm offering both 20 and 10 minute sessions. Dates are on the flyer - please message me to book or with any questions!


A great outtake from the Bach family session that I decided to include in their gallery. They loved it too and ended up using it on their holiday card!! My people for sure 🙌🏼 😊🐶


Sweet Coors and his family are on the blog from their mini session last September!


There is a new blog up this morning starring the adorable Bach family AND the website got a face lift - after three years ;). Lots of new photos in those galleries! Let me know what you think!


Emergencies with your pet happen. You can be more prepared with the Dog Emergency Guide that’s on the blog this week!


Today marks my 13th year doing photography full time! Amazing! I also thought I was way overdue for an introduction post, I honestly can’t remember the last time I did one.

I’m Mandy, your Nashville pets and their people photographer! Which means if you have a pet I want to include them in your family photos. (I have lots of tips to make that stress free :)

I am married to my strongman hubby Dave Whitley and we have a sweet 3 year old red head .

We have two East C.A.N. rescue pups: Don Draper & Rollo, and a 16 year old kitty appropriately named Buzzsaw.

I’m from a farm in Southeast Missouri (my very first job was tractor driver), and before I became a full time photographer I was an LCSW (this job is so much more fun).

Now that you know a little more about me, tell me all about you! 📷 Mindy Thornton Photography


Do you know what to do in an emergency with your pup? This week’s blog can help!


Guest post today with great information for you! The Dog Medical Emergency Guide is on the blog complete with a download for you to print out for your home!

What an amazing opportunity to see what fostering is all about! Fostering an animal while they are moving into their beautiful new shelter will help the animals be less stressed and who knows, you might just end up with a new best friend! Williamson County Animal Center

We have some pretty exciting news!

We will be having a Grand Opening celebration on February 28th. More to come!

However, we have A LOT of packing and moving to do between now and then.

Our current adoption center at 106 Claude Yates Drive will be closed to the public starting February 9th.

WCAC in general will be closed to the public between the 9th and 13th to move and train. Emergency intakes only (more info to come on that)

We are looking for families to temporarily foster a shelter pet between Feb. 9th-13th, then return the pet at 9am on February 14th. We have cats, rabbits, dogs...and did I mention rabbits? We have several.

Step 1: To apply, please visit:

PLEASE SPECIFY THAT YOU ARE INTERESTED IN FOSTERING FOR THE MOVE! If you fostered or filled out an adoption application last year, please email [email protected] to verify that your application is on file.

Step 2: Our foster coordinator will be in touch with you to set up an appointment.

Step 3. Please visit our center during your appointment time on February 9th and meet with our staff who will assist with matching a pet best suited for your home. If you have another dog(s) in your home, please bring your dog with you for a meet & greet.

*You will be provided food and all the supplies you will need to care for the foster pet. Including: Instructions, food, toys, leash, collar, bedding, litter/litterbox and more.

Step 4. Spoil our animals rotten. Let them stretch out and nap all day. Give them lots of love and TLC. Take lots of photos for us to share on social media.

Don Draper was very interested in the PetLibro water foundation, although I do think it’s better suited for cats or small dogs. Check out my review on the blog!
