Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Beginning today, Mt. Juliet Animal Care & Control is adjusting their shelter hours to give more opportunities for adoptable animals to be viewed in person. The new hours will allow the shelter to be open to the public for 18 hours a week, which is Tuesday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
After a review to enhance operations, conducted by the new director of Animal Care & Control, it was determined that staff has availability to offer more open hours to the public. The extra hours compliment Animal Care & Control’s strong emphasis on providing homes for animals. Volunteers with the Mt. Juliet Animal Shelter Volunteer Organization will aid full-time staff as more public viewing hours are provided.
Mt. Juliet’s animal control operations has one of the lowest euthanasia rates across the state, with zero animals euthanized due to overcrowding since their existence, and Mt. Juliet Animal Care & Control will keep up that goal. Animals available for adoption can also be viewed online at http://mjpd.org/197/Animal-Care-Control .
