Franklin County Dog Shelter Salutes Veterans

This month we honor all veterans with a special program in recognition of their service to our country.  From Wednesday, November 12 through Sunday, November 30 we will waive the adoption fee for all veterans who want to adopt a dog.  Veterans will only be charged $18 for the dog license.

Owning a dog has significant health benefits, including reducing stress, anxiety and depression.  It is our hope that the healing ability of the dog might benefit the veteran, and also provide a home for a dog in need.

 

Adopt A Senior Dog Month

Looking for a wonderful companion who's an easy keeper?  Take a look at some of our "senior" dogs age 5 and older. 


Mature pets have many advantages!  They are usually already trained, housebroken, with nice manners and loving personality. Exercise needs are typically less than most younger dogs or puppies.  Seniors ask for so little, and give back so much.

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!
