Tuesday, February 24 is World Spay Day,

an annual event recognizing the importance of spaying or neutering companion animals to control overpopulation. 

Spaying and neutering is the most effective means of decreasing the euthanasia of unwanted animals in shelters. We spay or neuter all dogs and puppies before making them available for adoption, as well as many of the dogs and puppies sent to rescue.

In honor of Spay Day we are offering all owners who reclaim a dog or puppy from the shelter this week a FREE surgery to spay or neuter their pet.

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

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.

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!
