WILLIAMSON COUNTY ANIMAL CENTER
Williamson County Animal Center (WCAC) will have its monthly public rabies and microchip clinic on Saturday, June 29 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the shelter, 106 Claude Yates Dr., in Franklin.
The public is invited to bring their cats or dogs for $10 rabies shots and $15 microchips. The rabies fee includes a one-year shot and a collar tag. The optional microchip protects your pet from loss for a lifetime. Chips are automatically registered to a database so pets can be reunited with owners when found. The clinic accepts cash (small bills) and checks only; no credit or debit cards.
WCAC reminds the residents of Williamson County and the Middle Tennessee area to vaccinate their pets against the deadly rabies virus, as state law requires. Protecting pets from this fatal illness is safe, easy and effective.
Williamson County Animal Center is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Intakes are accepted Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; however, owner surrenders of family pets is by appointment only. The shelter is located at 106 Claude Yates Dr., next to Franklin High School, and the phone number is (615) 790-5590.
