LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS! The Franklin Animal Shelter relies greatly on volunteers to help support our small staff in caring for our dogs and cats. We're looking for motivated individuals who can make a commitment for specific weekly shifts to assist our staff. Currently, we're looking to fill several 2-hour shifts to include some morning shifts and several weekday and weekend evening shifts. Duties include feeding the animals, cleaning kennels and crates, exercising the dogs, and other duties as directed. Volunteers engaged in animal care must be 18 years or older. If you're interested in volunteering for us, please complete one of our volunteer applications downloaded which can be found under the "More" tab and forward to Sharon Trudel at fas_vol@yahoo.com.

FEATURED PET: Freedom


Meet Freedom. Freedom is a young lady who is ready to find her new home. She is friendly and sweet, but like many cats, she can be moody. She lives life on her own terms! Freedom would be best as the only pet in the house as she doesn't seem to be fond of other cats or dogs. She has been spayed and is up to date on her vaccinations. Come meet and fall in love with a new companion!

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.
