Independence Day Holiday

All Franklin County Offices, including the Dog Shelter, will be closed on Friday, July 3, in Observance of Independence Day. We will reopen on Saturday, July 4 at 9 am.

You can still call us to report a dog running loose or a dog bite on the holiday: 525-3400. 

Even though the shelter is closed, our deputy wardens will be working hard to keep the community safe.









Plan ahead and keep your dog safe

Too many dogs are frightened by dangerous fireworks and gunfire every 4th of July.  Keep him safely inside and away from all fireworks celebrations that might cause him to bolt.

And double check your dog's collar and make sure his dog license and ID tag are securely attached...just in case!  Please share these safety tips with your family and friends.

Find True Love at the Adoption Center

You can't put a price on love. 

Adopt a homeless dog from the shelter and you'll understand the meaning of unconditional love. 

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, on our lawn beside the shelter.

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, July 5.

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!
