Another Record-Breaking Month!

Thank you to everyone who adopted a dog during the month of June!  It was a really busy month, and we took in 882 dogs.

A record 402 dogs were adopted---the most ever in the month of June, and the sixth month in a row that we set a new record.

We are very grateful to our staff and volunteers for working so hard to care for the dogs and help find them good homes, and to the rescue groups who took dogs who needed more care that we could provide here at the shelter.  Great job, everyone!

 

Franklin County Dog Shelter Achieves 89.4% Live Release!!!

Wow!  We are so very proud of the progress we’ve made in the past year!

Our live release rate has improved from 79% a year ago, to 89.4% in June, 2016!

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.

 

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!
