About Our Shelter:

The Franklin County Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization. Since 1974, their purpose has been to provide temporary care and shelter to stray, homeless, and abandoned animals. The shelter provides medical treatment including vaccinations and sterilization to all animals prior to adoption. FCAS serves the community as an adoption facility where loving families and pets needing homes come together. The shelter strives to educate the public in the proper care of pets including increasing public awareness of the companion animal overpopulation issue.

Our Adoption Process:

The adoption process is easy! Simply fill out an adoption application at the shelter or online at fcanimalshelter.org, then once you're approved you can adopt!

We do our best to prepare the dogs and cats for adoption by providing the following services:

-All animals are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.
-All dogs have received bordetella, distemper, rabies* vaccines, monthly flea treatment and nail trims.
-All cats have received distemper, rabies* vaccines.
-Each adoption comes with 30 days of free health insurance. -Most local veterinarians offer a complimentary initial exam of a shelter pet.

Pricing varies depending on type, size, and age of the animal, as well as the time of year because we offer monthly cat specials!

Occasionally we import dogs from other parts of the country. We only do this if there are no adoptable dogs available to us locally that can meet the request we have from area folks. These dogs typically come from high kill shelters. We charge an additional $25 for these dogs because we have additional costs associated with acquiring them.

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.
