The Williamson County Animal Center has opened a new public dog park, offering separate areas for large and small dogs and agility equipment, sponsored by the Darrell Waltrip Auto Group.
The new park is the fourth of its kind in Franklin and the seventh for Williamson County.
It can be found at Grigsby Hayes Court near the center.
“This park is a way to engage the community in a different way. It also lets people know that we can be a potential resource to them,” the center’s Assistant Director Scott Pieper said in prepared statements. “We had the extra space and a dog park in our previous location, so it only made sense to build one here as well.”
The Williamson County Animal Center hosts a variety of events to not only help pets get adopted, but to also help the community that takes care of them.
Created in 1994, the center offers volunteer programs, a community service fulfillment program and a Pet Pantry that offers free pet food to needy Williamson County residents.
Training is also offered for new pet parents for behaviors like house breaking and separation anxiety, among others.
