the public rabies and microchip clinic scheduled for Saturday, October 27, has been cancelled “due to circumstances beyond our control,” according to an announcement from the Animal Center.
The next clinic will be Saturday, November 17.
But the BarkAID fundraiser remains on track for Sunday.
Master hair stylist Patrick Lomantini, who has been traveling the country for seven years, holding hair cutting events to benefit hundreds of animal shelters, will set up haircut stations from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday behind Sweet Cece’s and in front of Classic Sports Barber Shop, 105 5th Avenue North in downtown Franklin.
Get a haircut for a cause at BarkAID for $25, with all proceeds going to the Williamson County Animal Center.
Lomantini has teamed up with Classic Sports Barber Shop to create the first BarkAID event in Franklin.
“We are excited to team up with Patrick and the other stylists for this fun event,” Animal Center Public Outreach Coordinator Debbie Sims said. “Tents will be set up in the parking lot in front of Classic Sports Barber Shop and there will be food and music along with great haircuts for a cause.”
The public is invited to stop by and meet adoptable shelter dogs and enjoy the vendors.
