Animal Harbor is operated by members of The Franklin County Humane Society, a private non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We started as an all-volunteer group, but also have a few staff members now, and we welcome the participation of all new members. The Humane Society meets the second Sunday of every month at 1 pm. Please call Animal Harbor at 962-4472 for the location of the meeting. Come join us!!
The mission of The Franklin County Humane Society is to
* Provide health care and temporary shelter for the many lost and homeless companion animals * Find new loving homes for these pets * Reduce pet overpopulation by promoting spaying and neutering * Prevent cruelty to animals * Educate the community about animal welfare
Come Meet Our Pets...
Animal Harbor is a full-service animal shelter facility located at 56 Nor-Nan Rd in Winchester, TN. Turn on AEDC Hwy across from Winchester Wal-Mart and go less than a mile before seeing us on the right. We are open to the public from noon to 5 pm Tuesday--Friday, and 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, or by appointment. Give us a call at 931-962-4472.
Our Adoption Process...
We require a signed adoption contract and a fee to adopt a pet. The normal adoption fees are: puppies $110, dogs $85, kittens $85, and cats $65. For purebreds or highly desirable breed mixes we will charge $100 or more to offset our charging less for a breed mix that is more difficult to place. For example, a Cocker Spaniel's $100 fee will help us let a big black dog go to a loving home for less than $75. We can only accept checks written on banks that operate in Franklin County, Tennessee. Otherwise, we request that the adoption fee be paid in cash. All of our pets are vet checked. They are given age-appropriate shots and spayed or neutered before adoption. Adult dogs are tested for heartworms and put on heartworm preventive. Cats are tested for FeLV and FIV, then given preventive inoculations. All of our pets are given rabies shots when they are old enough. They are all also treated with Frontline to prevent flea infestation.
