Franklin, KY (Simpson County)

About Our Shelter:

Our goal is to help find homes for the animals that come into the Simpson County Animal Shelter ... to work with the community to educate and promote spay/neuter
We work with several Petco stores to help find homes for the many cats that enter our shelter. We participate in adoption events to place dogs and work with rescue groups to save as many lives as possible. We encourage our community to visit and adopt and our community leaders to stand with us in making this shelter a success in saving lives instead of euthanizing. We are a small shelter (16 dog runs) to serve a county of 17,000 and often that can be very challenging.

Our Adoption Process:

All pets are spayed/neutered before they are placed with their adopter.

Cats - up to $65.

Dogs - $75.

Adoption fees include: spay/neuter, FVRCP vaccine for cats, Distemper/Parvo vaccine for dogs, rabies, de-wormed, Frontlined,

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
