The public is invited to the grand opening celebration of the new Williamson County Animal Center on Monday, February 28 from 1 to 4 p.m.
Among the festivities will be opportunities to tour the facility.
“We are thrilled to bring this facility to the public and showcase the many new ways you can partner with us,” Director Ondrea Johnson said in a press release. “We look forward to showing that the facility is a fun place to work, volunteer and visit, as well as share resources for pet owners.”
Williamson County Mayor Rogers Anderson called the new animal center an “impressive facility.”
“I couldn’t be more proud of this new facility which encompasses the ideas of staff, volunteers, members of a special task force and community partners,” he said. “There are paw prints everywhere that reflect the dreams, best practices and expertise of responsible companion animal advocates across our county. It is important to note that this impressive facility would not have been possible without many private partnerships and contributions.
The new center is located at 1006 Grigsby Hayes Court in Franklin. Take Highway 96 West to Carlisle Lane, left onto Roy F. Alley Court (formerly Old Charlotte Pike).
Beginning February 14, WCAC will be open for adoptions and other services at the new location Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and closed on Sunday.
