FRANKLIN, Tenn. – The animal shelter in Williamson County is overflowing with cats and kittens needing to be adopted. Officials with the animal control and adoption center say over 500 felines have been received at the shelter during May and June.

The shelter has dropped the adoption cost to just $10 in order to promote adoption and reduce their overcrowding. Adoptions require an approved application and include vaccinations, spay or neuter and microchip.

Shelter Director Laura Chavaria said there are 60 kittens and 76 cats on site with another 81 adoptable cats being held in other areas of the building. Even more are being cared for in foster homes.
