Minnie Pet of Week

The City of Franklin is teaming up with the Williamson County Animal Center (WCAC) with an event called Kitty Hall, a fundraising and adoption event in City Hall in downtown Franklin on July 8 from 10:30-2:30 p.m., per a release. 

Summer is the season for kittens and the WCAC says it will be offering half price adoptions at the Kitty Hall event. Mars Petcare is joining in the fun with giveaways for those who adopt. Free coffee and drinks will be available from Starbucks.

The event will be held in a conference room right off the main hallway in Kitty (City) Hall. The atmosphere will be similar to a cat café where citizens can come in, relax and spend a little time with the kittens and cats available for adoption. Donations for the WCAC will also be accepted.  

“Kitty Hall is one of the most fun events we do, and I’m happy to say we’ve helped to provide homes for dozens of kitties,” said Mayor Ken Moore. “There will be adult cats and kittens up for adoption and any proceeds we make from the event will go to support the Williamson Animal Center, a very worthwhile place in our community. Thank you to Mars for supporting this event!”

Ondrea Johnson, director at Williamson County Animal Center, mentioned the number of cats that could be given a new home. 

“We have so many adoptable cats and kittens in our community, and this event is a fun way to bring awareness to the need for adoption," she said. "The City of Franklin is such a great partner, and we appreciate their hosting Kitty Hall.”

Attendees to Kitty Hall will have the opportunity to adopt a cat, cuddle and play with the kittens and take photos.

The fees will be half price at $25.00 for a cat or kitten.
