Dear Shelter Community,


We are truly missing all of our supporters and regular visitors! It has been TOO long and we are anxiously awaiting the day we open up fully to regular business. But for now, we want to thank everyone for your kindness, generosity, and understanding. In order to protect our employees, volunteers, and community members, the shelter will remain open by appointment only until further notice. We will reevaluate our status regularly and reopen once the threat is no longer imminent. Our staff will continue to be on the premises to insure the proper care of all of our four-legged guests. Donations will still be accepted during this time via our website or delivered to our doors.


Thank you for your support,

Franklin Animal Shelter Board of Directors

WHO WE ARE

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

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 ABUSING OR NEGLECTING AN ANIMAL, CONTACT YOUR LOCAL POLICE DEPARTMENT OR ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER AND REPORT IT.  THE FRANKLIN ANIMAL SHELTER IS NOT AN ENFORCEMENT AGENCY BUT YOU MAY CONTACT THE SHELTER FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.  (603 934 4132)  THE ANIMALS NEED US TO BE THEIR VOICE.
