FRANKLIN, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Williamson County Animal Control and Adoption Center in Franklin has taken in such a large number of cats and kittens, the shelter is lowering rates to encourage adoptions.
The shelter has received over 500 cats and kittens in the last 60 days.
Shelter Director Laura Chavarria said the shelter is reducing the cat and kitten adoption rate to just $10, indefinitely.
Adoptions require an approved application and include vaccinations, spay or neuter and microchip.
Chavarria says the increase in strays and surrendered litters of kittens is putting pressure on the adoption areas.
“Currently, all of our cat adoption kennels are being used, with 60 kittens and 76 cats on site. There are 81 adoptable cats being held in other areas of the building because of our limited space,” she states. “We also have 54 kittens being cared for in foster homes,” she added.
The Williamson County Animal Control and Adoption Center is located at 106 Claude Yates Dr. in Franklin.
The shelter is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
