Cat Shoppe Dog Store has been in business since 1992. The original store was located across from the Mall at Green Hills and 10 years ago, relocated to a more spacious bungalow in Berry Hill. It's a very peaceful store where you're welcome to pet and play with the cats and kittens available for adoption.
Please meet our devoted team below. We look forward to meeting you in person!
We always welcome volunteers to help with socializing the cats in the shop. If you would like to donate some of your time, please stop on in and talk to the staff about how you can help that day.
Owner Chris Achord incorporated both her love for rescuing animals and her business savvy to open her unique shop 20 years ago. Her original shop was located across from the Mall of Green Hills and moved her store 10 years ago to it's current location in Berry Hill (South Nashville). She's always available for advice about food, adopting and feline behavior.
