We are a county run facility. We strive to protect animals from abuse, neglect and homelessness. Our staff have enormous hearts and do everything we can to provide resources to the community to promote responsible pet ownership with the goal of reducing dangers, overpopulation and nuisances caused by stray and unwanted animals.
Come Meet Our Pets...
Hours of Operation are Monday-Friday 10:00am-4:00pm Saturday 10:00am-2:00pm.
Animals that come into Franklin County Animal Shelter are of various backgrounds, most are unknown. Our staff is dedicated to finding homes for the animals in our care. Many of the animals are offered for adoption to the public. Some have issues which prevent us from allowing them to be adopted by the public. We work continuously with 501c3 nonprofit animal rescues who provide the treatment or training these animals need to rehome them.
Animals are brought into our facility each and every day so please check the website frequently. If you are local, it would be great for you to come into our shelter to see all of our pets that are here and waiting for their new homes.We try and list them as soon as possible but ther are always new faces to be seen. If local, please stop in and walk thru to see all of our available animals.
Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption process is actually very simple! ADOPTIONS ARE FIRST COME FIRST SERVE! WE DO NOT HOLD ANIMALS FOR ADOPTERS. Our adoption fee is $25. We only accept cash or check. If the animal you adopt is not already spay/neutered at the time of adoption, you will be required to have the animal spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption (or by 6 months of age for puppies and kittens) and return proof of the spay/neuter to our office. Our shelter hours for adoption are Mon-Fri 10am-4pm and Sat 10am-2pm.
