If you are considering adoption of one of our wonderful cats or dogs, you should know that the Franklin Animal Shelter is not a first-come, first-served Shelter. We are driven to find the best and appropriate setting of our adoptable animals. This means to a potential adopter that we will conduct a review before approving an adoption. Our process begins with the completion of our Adoption Application. When the application is submitted, the applicant(s) will be be interviewed and questions about the contents of the Application will be discussed. We may also request a home study which helps the Shelter ensure that the setting for the animal is satisfactory. References and veterinarians will be contacted and other information may be verified.
Our Adoption Application may be completed and then saved or printed for submission by clicking the link below:
Completed Adoption Applications may be e-mailed to email@example.com, mailed to Franklin Animal Shelter POBox 265, Franklin NH 03235 or delivered to 71 Punch Brook Road, Franklin during our business hours.
If the Application is approved, an appointment will be made for the hand-over of your new pet and pertinent records for your information. The following fees will be assessed and must be paid at the time of hand-over.
PUPPIES (16 WEEKS OR UNDER): $250.00
