Pet Help

One reason pets are surrendered to our community shelter is due to negative behavior. A goal of NKWC’s is to help Williamson County pet owners with problems-before the problems become too large and the bond between the owner and pet is destroyed.

Saving Animals From Euthanasia

Saving Animals From Euthanasia (S.A.F.E.) is a service provided by NKWC to help people help their pets find new homes or to stay in their current homes. We will work with Williamson County citizens to help determine the best outcome for you and your pet. Our services include but are not limited to: advice and assistance regarding behavior and medical issues and limited assistance with rehoming your pet. By working together, surrendering your pet to our local animal control should be your last resort.

Feral Cats and Kittens

Williamson County Animal Control is in the process of implementing a limited Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program for feral cats. This program will be an effective and humane way for Williamson County communities to help control the feral cat population. Other counties in the state also provide this service. If you are from another Tennessee county and need guidance, please go to our home page contact us with your question.

Need immediate assistance on socializing feral kittens? Please visit the websites below for a comprehensive guide on how to help feral kittens.

Lost and Found Williamson County Pets

Oftentimes, when pets go missing, it’s after hours at animal control or over the course of a weekend. When this happens, we want you to know you have a place to turn for assistance. We will happily post your Williamson County pet on our Facebook page as well as contacting multiple lost pet sites that will also share your pet’s information. It’s important to note that pets can travel quite a distance in a short period of time. Please call other shelters adjacent to Williamson County. Many shelter pets have been found by their owners two counties away. Below are a few resources for you to contact should your pet go missing.
