Staying home for the holidays? Williamson County Animal Center is seeking families that can provide a temporary holiday respite for its shelter pets. “We are seeking families that will commit to fostering,” said shelter Community Outreach Coordinator Debbie Sims. “Our Christmas wish is that every pet has a loving family to spend the holidays with. We would love to have some ‘silent nights’ in the shelter, particularly December 24-26.”

Sims also added that the shelter learns a lot about a pet when it is fostered. “Fosters can provide valuable information about a pet’s habits and personality,” she said. “This information helps us match them with the best possible home and gives our adopters an idea of what to expect with each new pet.”

Williamson County families interested in becoming fosters should fill out a foster application at www.adoptwcac.org or at the shelter. Approved families will be matched with a cat or dog. Foster pet pick-up starts on December 22 and pets can be returned December 27 or later.

Williamson County Animal Center will be closed on December 25 and 26, 2018 and January 1, 2019. In addition, the shelter will close at 3:00 p.m. on December 24 and December 31. The shelter is located at 106 Claude Yates Dr., next to Franklin High School, and the phone number is (615) 790-5590. Adoptable animals (available for foster) can be viewed at www.adoptwcac.org.
