Every dog deserves a loving home.  Help us find more dogs homes by sharing our dogs information with your family and friends.

Franklin County Dog Shelter Achieves 81% Live Release

We are very proud of the progress we’ve made in the past year!

 
Since July 2014 our live release rate has improved from 69% a year ago, to 81% in June, 2015!

 

Live Release includes all dogs reclaimed by their owners, adopted or sent to rescue.  See our statistics page for more information. 

Closed for Labor Day

We are open normal business hours on Saturday and Sunday; closed Monday for the Labor Day holiday.

Please consider adopting a dog from the shelter!!

Finding your lost dog

If your dog is lost, it may already be at the Dog Shelter.  We operate 24/7 in all parts of Franklin County.  Your dog may have been found by someone in your neighborhood and picked up by one of our deputy wardens.

Please contact us immediately to give us your information, by phone, email or smartphone!

Find True Love at the Adoption Center

You can't put a price on love. 

Adopt a homeless dog from the shelter and you'll understand the meaning of unconditional love. 

Adoption Statistics

Did you know that the average dog spends just 7 days in the shelter?

Beginning with the day the dog arrives, it is checked out in the clinic, behavior-tested, spayed or neutered and placed on our adoption floor, and eventually adopted. Puppies disappear even more quickly!

Check our website for dogs currently available for adoption.

News & Information

Happy Endings

After a dog leaves the shelter, we love to hear stories and see pictures of how they are doing in their new homes. Check out our new "Happy Endings" photo album featuring dogs who have been adopted from the Franklin County Dog Shelter, and see how happy they look now that they have found a forever home. If you have adopted a dog from us and would like to be featured in our album, message us a photo of your dog and tell us how they are doing!
