Pet of the Week 5-27

Kittens like Ranger take the spotlight this week as Williamson County Animal Center focuses on a new Kitten Rescue & Rehome program for Williamson County residents.  Two to three hundred kittens have come into the shelter in May, and more are expected throughout the summer months. At 8 weeks of age, Ranger is ready for adoption,  

Williamson County Animal Center has launched a new free Kitten Rescue & Rehome program, giving county citizens who find kittens the option of keeping them in their home, getting free spay/neuter surgeries at WCAC, and then placing the kittens in permanent homes with family and friends.  

The purpose of the program, according to a press release from the Animal Center, is to keep unexpected kittens out of the shelter and allow rehoming in the community while still providing free spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinations to all the kittens before placement. If a mother is present, her spay is also free of charge. 

Kitten Rescue & Rehome stops the kitten reproductive revolution, one cat at a time. Every kitten that is sterilized through Kitten Rescue & Rehome brings the local community one step closer to controlling the unwanted cat population.

Williamson County residents who find a litter of kittens and want to rehome them themselves should contact the shelter by completing the Kitten Rescue & Rehome application online. No rescues or organizations may apply. 

WCAC also offers free or low-cost spay/neuters for all outdoor cats, indoor cats and most dogs.
