We had a fantastic turn-out at out 3rd annual golf tournament. Thank you to all of our players (20 teams!), our sponsors, and to Lochmere Golf & Country Club for hosting us!


There are many ways to contribute and support the Franklin Animal Shelter. If you're unable to support financially, we are always looking for volunteers and donations of items of everyday use such as cleaning products, food for the animals, litter, etc.

Our Annual Appeal helps close the funding gap between our annual income and our expense budget. Details below...

We are in our expanded space.  However, the campaign funding is still short to complete the work.  

Make a tax deductible donation to support the shelter with everyday expenses, vet visits, and more.

Meet Vera. She is a three year old Can Corso, Bulldog mix. She is super, super sweet. She is good with some dogs, but very choosy with who she makes friends with. She does not do well with cats. She is great with kids, but because of her large size (just a mere 119 pounds) and young age (She gets zoomies.), she would do better with older children 10+. She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and ready for her new adventure. She loves walks and laying in the sun. Vera would love to just hang around in a fenced yard. Come meet your summer buddy, Vera


We are a 501(c)3 tax-exempt non-profit animal welfare organization.  We make every attempt to reunite strays with their original families. 
If that is not possible, we try to place them with a new loving family.


Our mission is to shelter, care for, and advocate for the abused, neglected and abandoned cats and dogs of the communities we serve by taking steps to control overpopulation and providing healthy animals that will be adopted into loving 'forever' homes.

We will accomplish this by responsible stewardship of resources and maintaining a focus on the financial health and well-being of the organization.


If you know of anyone who is abusing or neglecting an animal, please contact your local Police Department or Animal Control Officer to report it. The Franklin Animal Shelter is not an enforcement agency, but you may contact the shelter at (603) 934-4132 for additional assistance. Be the voice for those who can't speak for themselves.
