2019 Year in Review

Infographic for stats for 2019 WCAC YEAR in REVIEW

Message from WCAC Executive Director, Ondrea Johnson: 

It’s an exciting time to be at the Williamson County Animal Center. In 2019 we saw some exciting new programs come to life. Our Community cat program was born. We were able to spay and neuter 1,185 cats in our community, completely free of charge to Williamson County residents.   This program also contributed to a 30% reduction in stray cats coming into the shelter.  Our aggressive goal is 2,020 cats spayed and neutered in 2020!  If you know of an outdoor cat that needs our help, contact us at samantha.anderson@williamsoncounty-tn.gov.

Williamson County saw a 155 dog reduction in owner surrendered dogs.  Thanks to finding from Friends of WCAC, our center became the first in Middle Tennessee to implement “Dogs Playing for Life" a canine enrichment program that allows the dogs in our care to participate in natural dog behavior and learn from their fellow canine residents. This and other programs, spurred on by Project Reward training and protocols, helped contribute to our 69% reduction in returns of adopted dogs. 

 We partnered with Friends of Williamson County Animal Center to host our first ever fundraising gala and plans are underway for an even bigger event this March. All of this exciting progress is accentuated by the plans for an all new shelter. We hope to break ground on a new, larger, modern shelter in the early summer of this year. 

Exciting things are on the horizon and we hope you will join us to be a part of saving lives in our community!
