Unleash the Love
Looking for a best friend for life? Gallery 202 and Williamson County Animal Control will be teaming up Saturday, June 25 to “unleash the love” at the historic Franklin art gallery, located at 202 2nd Ave.

This special pet adoption day will run 10 am to 5 pm. Activities include vendors, live music, door prizes, and gourmet pet treats, with, of course, a sizeable number of dogs and cats on hand as well—all looking for homes and hoping for a shot at becoming your true companion.

“Kelly had the vision to showcase our wonderful adoptable animals in the best and brightest light, and Dillards has donated makeup for face painting animal faces on children,” said Debby Leddy, assistant shelter director. “We’ll have dogs and cats available for adoption that day, and the event will be held in the back courtyard of the gallery, which is a nice area with shade.”

Located in historic Clouston Hall, Gallery 202 is owned by Kelly Harwood, who will be on hand grilling hot dogs.

Leddy said the day will also provide members of the public an opportunity donate to the shelter, and that nationally known pet photographer Peter Nash will offer special photo opportunities for each donation of $100 or more. All donations are tax deductible.

June is Adopt-a-Cat Month at WCAC, with cat adoption fees reduced to $25 (regular $45). Price includes spay/neuter, rabies vaccination, feluk testing, microchip insertion and flea/tick products. Dog adoption fee is $65, and also includes vaccination plus spay or neuter.

Here is a little historic twist to the day. Clouston Hall was built approximately in 1821 by the Clouston family, who used it as a “town home” to entertain guests, including Tennessee’s three U.S. presidents; Andrew Jackson, James K. Polk, and Andrew Johnson.
