About Us


If anyone can... East C.A.N.! We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of East Nashville volunteers who have worked together since 2008, encouraging accountability on issues of animal welfare and responsible pet ownership.

We do not have a shelter and instead facilitate neighbors helping neighbors as we all find, foster and nurture stray and abandoned dogs.

We connect fosters and finders with:

  • Basic supplies (food, crate, bowls, leashes, collars, dog beds, etc.)

  • Essential vetting and medications (including spay/neuter)

  • Training and socialization resources

  • Proven marketing avenues to reach qualified, potential forever homes

  • Responsible oversight of the adoption process (applications, home visits and follow-ups)

East CAN is proud of its reputation, providing quality supplies and care for more than 1000 dogs over the years.

We fully depend on community support from businesses, donors and hands-on volunteers. We have a role for you too. Email us at info@eastcan.org and learn more!
