Looking for a best friend for life in Cool Springs? Gallery 202 and Williamson County Animal Control will be teaming up Saturday, June 25 to “unleash the love” at the historic Downtown Franklin TN art gallery, located at 202 2nd Ave.
This special pet adoption day for dogs and cats will run 10am – 5pm on June 25. Included are vendors, live music, fantastic door prizes, and gourmet dog and cat treats, with a large number of available pets on hand. All these dogs and cats looking for a home and hoping for a shot at becoming your true friend and companion.
“Kelly had the vision to showcase our wonderful adoptable animals in the best and brightest light, and the Cool Springs Galleria Dillard’s has donated makeup for face painting animal faces on children,” said Debby Leddy, assistant shelter director. “We’ll have dogs and cats available for adoption that day, and the event will be held in the back courtyard of the gallery, which is a nice area with shade.”
Located in historic Clouston Hall built in 1821, Gallery 202 is owned by Franklin TN resident Kelly Harwood, who will be on hand grilling hamburgers and hot dogs as well as answering your questions about the Gallery 202’s offerings and their extraordinarily talented artists, many of whom are local in addition to around the world.
Debby Leddy said the day will also provide members of the public an opportunity donate to the shelter, and that nationally known pet photographer Peter Nash will offer special photo opportunities for each donation of $100 or more. All donations are tax deductible.
June is Adopt-a-Cat Month at WCAC, with cat adoption fees reduced to $25 (regular $45). Price includes spay/neuter, rabies vaccination, feluk testing, microchip insertion and flea/tick products. Dog adoption fee is $65, and it does include vaccination plus spay or neuter service.
Just outside Cool Springs, Gallery 202 is located in Clouston Hall close to Downtown Franklin. Clouston Hall was built approximately in 1821 by the Clouston family, who used it as a “town home” to entertain guests, including at least three U.S. presidents James K. Polk, Andrew Jackson and Andrew Johnson.
