Meet Ondrea Johnson: New Director of Williamson County Animal Center

Ondrea Johnson Williamson County Animal Center Director

Ondrea Johnson was recently named the new Director of Williamson County Animal Center in Franklin. We stopped by to talk with Johnson, an 18-year resident of Williamson County, to learn about when she first started rescuing animals, how to adopt from the animal center and a new upcoming event in May called Cinco De Meow.

If you are interested in adopting a pet, the Williamson County Animal Center hours are Monday – Friday 10 am – 6 pm, Saturday 11 am – 3 pm and Sunday noon – 4 pm. After you select your new pet, you will be asked to complete an adoption survey and application. This time is well invested when you consider that your pet will live with you for up to 15 years or more.

Most pets can be taken home as soon as adoption paperwork and transactions are completed. However, if the mandatory spay/neuter has not been completed, they may keep your pet a few days to complete that surgery. If your pet is too young for the spay/neuter, they will contract with you for a return visit for the surgery, and retain a deposit until it is completed. Each adopter gets a take-home bag with a few days food supply.

Williamson County Animal Center is located at 106 Claude Yates Drive in Franklin. Adoptable animals can also be viewed at For more information, call (615) 790-5590, visit or like Williamson County Animal Center on Facebook.
