Williamson County Animal Control and Adoption Center is pleased to announce that it has been named Best Animal Control Facility in the Top Dog contest, Nashville PAW magazine’s annual Reader’s Choice Awards. The shelter was notified August 1, 2013 by Nashville PAW founder and publisher Heather Dowdy. According to Nashville PAW’s Facebook page, over 9,000 ballots were cast in the 2013 contest in 33 categories.
Shelter Director Laura Chavarria, who took the helm at Williamson County Animal Control on June 20, 2013, attributes the shelter’s first place status to the hard work of her predecessor and former director Doug Brightwell, the shelter staff and its many volunteers. “I am so pleased that our shelter has such a great reputation in the Middle Tennessee area, and my goal is to maintain our excellent status and create even more adoption and volunteer opportunities.”
Nashville PAW will feature all the first place winners in the December 2013 issue of the magazine. The monthly publication reaches over 50,000 readers in print and online. The Williamson County Animal Control and Adoption Center is located at 106 Claude Yates Dr., next to Franklin High School. Adoptable animals can be viewed at www.adoptwcac.org or at the center from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, or 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
