The Shelter Needs Your Help!

There are more than 300 dogs currently in our care, with no space for new arrivals.  Please, help us make some space!  By adopting, rescuing or reclaiming your dog from the shelter this week, you can help us save another dog's life.

Please help us spread the word, and thanks for your support.

Christmas in July

Special adoption prices now through July 31!  

Most dogs are now available for adoption for just $18, that's right, just the price of your county dog license.   Puppies under 7 months old and deaf dogs are not included in this special.

Please help us make some space, ADOPT!

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.

Small dogs and puppies disappear even more quickly!  Check our site daily for new arrivals, and visit early as soon as we open for the best selection.

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!
