The Franklin Animal Shelter services the City of Franklin NH. It contracts as the City's Municipal Pound and accepts resident surrenders of cats and dogs. Adoptions are made to any qualified adopter regardless of residency.
The Franklin Animal Shelter is operated by the Granite State Animal League and has fulfilled its mission to rehome abandoned, neglected, abused and surrendered dogs and cats in Franklin NH since 2002. Other than animals received under its municipal pound contract, the shelter operates as a limited-access shelter.
Come Meet our Pets:
Our shelter is located at 71 Punch Brook Road, Franklin, NH and is open to the public Tuesday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM, and Saturday's from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM.
Our Adoption Process:
All potential adopters are required to submit an application which is researched to ensure that the adoption is a good fit for the animal. This is NOT a first-come, first-served adoption process. Adoption fees are based upon the breed. (cat or dog) and age (youth, adult, senior) and are published on our website at www.franklinanimalshelter.com/adoptions.htm.
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.
