FREE RIDE TO SPAY/NEUTERS FOR FAIRVIEW CATS
July 9 and 11 set for ‘Snip & Tip Taxi’
Fairview residents wanting to take advantage of the Williamson County Animal Center’s free spay/neuter program for outdoor cats can sign up now for free pick up and delivery in Fairview on July 9 and 11. The ‘Snip & Tip Taxi’ will be at the Fairview Recreation Center parking lot, 2714 Fairview Blvd. from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. on July 9 and 11 for loading, and will return from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. both days for residents to pick up their pets.
This service is part of the shelter’s new Community Cat program, which includes free spay/neuter surgeries for all outdoor cats in Williamson County, including family pets. Approved by the County Commission, and funded by a grant from the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, the Community Cat program addresses the growing problem of cat overpopulation in Williamson County in several ways.
Slots for Fairview residents on July 9 and 11 are limited to 30 animals each day, and residents must register in advance by calling 615-790-5590, ext. 1823. The shelter welcomes stray or community cats as well, and can assist with trapping. There is no fee for the spay/neuter program, which includes surgery, vaccination and a microchip.

The shelter is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Adoptable animals can be viewed at www.adoptwcac.org.
