Valentine's Day is always exciting if you have a certain someone to share it with and right now the Williamson County Animal Control Center is trying to also make it special for adult cats waiting to go home.
The "Have a Heart" Valentine's Day challenge was started to help find homes for one of the many adult cats at the shelter. The cat center has reached full capacity and they must make room for more animals that need homes. So they are offering fully vetted cats free to good homes.
"We have a variety of colors, ages, and breeds to choose from," Director Doug Brightwell told The Tennessean. "Some cats have been with us for months."
Cats often live outdoors and tend to roam. And since they reproduce quickly the result is shelters that constantly struggle to find enough families looking to adopt them.
During the new feline special, each comes already spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. The regular adoption fee is normally $45 and the special does not include kittens.
The adoption center is located at 106 Claude Yates Dr near Franklin High School. The hours of operation are Monday through Friday 10 am to 6 pm or Saturday from 11 am to 3 pm.
