Give a Wag! Gives to Franklin Shelters

When traveling to Franklin, TN, you will quickly realize that this is one of the most dog-friendly places around! In this fur-tastic city, you will find the Williamson County Animal Center, located at 106 Claude Yates Drive. This organization does not call themselves a humane society, but they are classified as an animal control, animal care and animal adoption center. They pride themselves on the basis that they never turn away any animal, no matter what type or age. 

This center considers itself a no-kill establishment because of its successful save rate, which was 96% in 2016. The only way they will ever euthanize an animal is if it has severe behavioral issues or medical problems. On top of taking care of each animal that comes through their door, they also have a great relationship with the community. On the last Saturday of each month, this center has a Rabies and Microchip Clinic that is open to the public to help vaccinate their animals. 

The Williamson County Animal Center has numerous animals up for adoption and you can go to their website to check out what animals are available. They have all their adoption fees online as well for your convenience. This facility is a county tax-funded agency that is 5,000 sq.ft. and has numerous different areas inside for the animals and staff to work with. Not only do they have a large indoor area, they also have a large outdoor spot that includes trails, a dog park, and a running area for exercise. Be sure to check out this wonderful establishment while visiting Franklin!
