Staying home for the holidays? Be a holiday pet foster family!

Roxie, a domestic short hair, was owner surrendered in November. She is 8 years old.
Paisley, a 14 year old Chihuahua, was rescued in September from unsanitary living conditions. She is healthy now, and would like to spend the holidays at a foster home.
In response to community interest in helping during the holiday season, Laura Chavarria, director of Williamson County Animal Control and Adoption Center, is offering a holiday pet foster program to the community.

“We have a number of senior pets that need a holiday break,” she said.  “Unfortunately, many older dogs and cats are surrendered to us on a regular basis. They are particularly stressed by the shelter environment, and would especially benefit from being in a home setting.” 
Chavarria is looking for Williamson County families that will be staying home for the holidays. “We are seeking ten families that will commit to fostering from Dec. 22 through 25.”

Fosters must come to the shelter, fill out a foster application and meet with foster coordinators Amber or April.  Approved foster families will be matched with a cat or dog. Foster pet pick-up will be Monday, Dec.  22 and return will be Thursday, Dec. 26 at 10 a.m. 
The shelter will be closed for the holidays on Tuesday, Dec 24; Wednesday, Dec. 25;  and Wednesday, Jan. 1.  
For information about shelter services, call (615) 790-5590 or stop by our center, located next to Franklin High School.  Adoptable animals can be viewed at www. 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.
