New location for Happy Tales falls through

FRANKLIN, Tenn. -

A plan for a new home for Happy Tales Humane has fallen apart, leaving the non-profit animal rescue the challenge of quickly finding somewhere else to go.

Happy Tales, currently located at The Factory in Franklin, was told to leave its space last fall.

Nashville's News 2 has since learned the owners are moving in a different direction for the shopping and antique mall.

In December, Happy Tales announced it was purchasing property and on Lewisburg Pike in Williamson County.

That deal, however, has since fallen apart due to septic ordinances.

Mark Enderle, president of the board of directors for Happy Tales, told News 2 in a statement, "We are disappointed that the location across from Berry Farms is not going to work because of the septic situation on the property.  That said, we are excited about some of the prospective locations we are currently working on and look forward to making an announcement very soon."  

Happy Tales director Debbi Cure told News 2 they expect to release information on another location next week.

Happy Tales is currently no longer accepting or adopting cats and dogs until their location situation is settled. The non-profit is currently staying in a temporary space at The Factory.
