During January at Williamson County Animal Center (WCAC) in Franklin, adoption fees are waived on all senior pets (five years and older) during the “Love is Ageless” event. Senior pets have so much love to give, and they are typically calmer and better trained than younger cats and dogs. Most senior pets are surrendered because of family situations, not bad behavior. In fact, a senior pet is an instant companion, grateful for another lease on life and ready to be a forever friend.
There is no adoption fee for pets 5 years and older during January, though an approved application is required. Dogs under 5 years are $25, puppies $85, and cats and kittens under 5 are $50.
Williamson County Animal Center is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Saturdays from 11:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., and Sundays from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The shelter is located at 106 Claude Yates Dr., next to Franklin High School, and the phone number is (615) 790-5590.
