Hendersonville’s Mayor on the Importance of Pets
“I grew up with horses, dogs, and cats. Pets have always been a part of my life and still are. I have never had a time when we didn’t have pets. My kids are the same way. Our neighborhood is full of pets and their owners walking by frequently. Hendersonville is delighted to be certified as a BETTER CITIES FOR PETS community. We are blessed to have a beautiful city by the lake with lots of green space for residents to enjoy with their pets.”
