Dog lovers brought their furry friends out to The Hermitage for fun under the sun.

Hundreds came out to the second annual "Dog's Day" at Andrew Jackson's The Hermitage on Saturday.

Humans and their pets enjoyed the historic grounds.

Food trucks and vendors also lined the fields offering pet owners treats for animals.

Plus, the event was a chance for people to adopt local animals looking for a forever home.

"If you're a pet owner, any pet owner, it's wonderful to come to these community events. It's a wonderful opportunity to not only hopefully find a dog to adopt, but perhaps network where you can also find a pet-sitter or perhaps a groomer, even a place to buy treats. It's a one-stop-shop for any pet owner,” Public Outreach Asst. Williamson Co. Animal Center Penny Adams said.

Adams said the Williamson County Animal Center is reaching capacity.

For the entire month of June the center will allow people to adopt any pet one year or older for $25. 

"We're also running a BOGO kitten sale. If you adopt the first kitten, it’s $10. The second one is free,” Adams said. 

The Williamson County Animal Center is located at 106 Claude Yates Drive in Franklin.
