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.

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, September 21.

Skip the trip!

ALWAYS keep your dog's LICENSE and ID tag on the collar.

Our deputy wardens all carry iPads in the field so they can easily look up a license tag to find your name, address and phone number.  Then we can contact you directly to let you know we've found your dog.

We also carry microchip scanners in all our vehicles so we can scan for a chip and look it up on national registries.

20% of all dogs we pick up are returned immediately to the owner without having to be taken to the shelter and impounded, saving you the impound fee and a trip to the shelter and saving the county the cost of housing the dog.  Make sure your dog can be identified easily.





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!

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!
