Overcrowded Shelter Offer No-Fee Cat Adoptions
No-fee Adult Cat Adoptions; Two-for-One Kittens
To relieve overcrowding, the Williamson County Animal Center in Franklin is offering no-fee adult cat adoptions, and $10 adoptions for two kittens. A record number of cats and kittens have been surrendered at the shelter in June (over 315), causing overcrowding.
Debbie Sims, public information coordinator for the shelter, said the seasonal cat and kitten influx has the shelter bursting at the seams. “We have set up extra portable kennels in many areas, and even converted our storage area to cat housing,” she said. “What we need most is the community to respond by adopting.”
All adoptions require an approved application and include vaccinations, spay or neuter (or $50 returnable deposit), microchip and a pet goodie bag. There are 40 adult cats of all types, ages and breeds available for adoption.
The shelter also has about 35 kittens (with more coming in each day), and is offering $10 kitten adoptions with a free second kitten. Adopt a sweet kitten and get a built-in playmate included in the adoption!
