Summer Lovin' Adoption Special

Summer's more fun when you spend it with your best friend.   Right now we have more than a hundred furry best friends who desperately need loving homes.  We are getting crowded, so for a limited time we are waiving the usual adoption fee on all large and medium sized dogs.  You can adopt any dog that's at least 30 pounds or larger for just the cost of the $18 dog license!

Teach Your Kids To Respect Dogs

Children are frequently the victim of a dog bite, particularly during the summer months.  Teach your children how to play it safe around dogs, and always supervise kids and dogs.

Shelter Advisory Committee

Established by the commissioners, the Shelter Advisory Committee provides advice and community feedback to the leadership of the Franklin County Dog Shelter.  It includes nine members chosen from various sectors of the animal welfare community, such as veterinary medicine, public health, animal rescue, and shelter management each serving three-year terms, and meets at least quarterly or by the call of the chair.

Franklin County Dog Shelter Achieves 90.8% Live Release for 2017!!!

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

Thank you to everyone who helped address the problem of homeless dogs by adopting, reclaiming and rescuing dogs from the shelter last year! 

 

Surrendering your dog

 

Please carefully consider all other options first before you make the decision to surrender your dog to the shelter.  It is a very stressful environment and not all dogs can cope.

No one knows your dog better than you, so please make every effort to find your dog a good home yourself.  Here are some resources that may help.

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!
