Mingle With Our Mutts

Our twice-monthly adoption event with shelter dogs and many area rescue groups is a great place to search for a new best friend.

Held the first and third Sunday afternoon of the month at the shelter, from noon to 2 pm, on our lawn beside the shelter.

You don't need to wait for Mingle With Our Mutts to visit us, we're open seven days a week!

Next Mingle is Sunday, June 7.

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.

To see the dogs recently adopted, please visit our Facebook page.

 





SPAY OR NEUTER YOUR PETS!

Spaying or neutering companion animals is the most effective way to control overpopulation and decrease the euthanasia of unwanted animals in shelters.

In 2014 the shelter spayed or neutered more than 2,985 dogs and puppies before sending them home.

Please join us in promoting responsible pet ownership!  Spay or neuter your pet.

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!
