FEATURED PET: Ollie


Meet Ollie. He is an older gentleman at approximately 12-13 years old. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and has a clean bill of health. Ollie is quite the conversationalist and is looking for someone who wants to chat. He is a sweet, lovable guy. With his previous owner, he was an indoor/ outdoor kitty. Come meet your new buddy!

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.
