Williamson, Metro animal shelters work together in December to boost adoptions

ABOVE: Cooper, the Williamson County Animal Center Pet of the Week, is a nine-month-old  hound/cattle dog mix.  He has a spirited, lively personality and is an enthusiastic companion on daily walks. Cooper loves having play dates with his shelter buddies, but also enjoys quiet time. It’s Cooper’s turn to find a family to love and care for him. You can meet Cooper at the Animal Center during the ‘Season of Love.’


December is the ‘Season of Love’ and good cheer, so Williamson County Animal Center (WCAC) and Metro Animal Care and Control (MACC) are joining forces to find forever homes for the dogs and cats in their care.

Ondrea Johnson, director at WCAC, stated, “We are excited to team up with MACC and help spread the word about pet adoption throughout Middle Tennessee. What better time than the holiday season to think about sharing your home with a shelter pet.”

MACC director Lauren Bluestone stated, “Metro Animal Care and Control is excited to partner with Williamson Animal Center on fantastic lifesaving events throughout the entire month of December.  This season will truly prove to be the season of love, so please join us and open your hearts to the love of a shelter animal and become their best gift this time of year.”

Johnson also stated that there are several ways to help. “If you can, adopt. If you can’t adopt, try being a foster for the holidays. Our goal is to see every animal go to a home by December 24, with an adopter or a foster family.”

Donations are also needed, and wish lists can be found at www.amazon.com for both shelters. Items needed include Benebones, Kongs, creamy peanut butter, Royal Canin mother and baby cat food, Kitten Meal Replacement (KMR), cat toys and puzzle feeders.

All adoption fees for cats and dogs (all ages) at both shelters will be $25 during December. Pocket pets such as rabbits, hamsters or Guinea pigs will be $5.
