The Franklin Animal Shelter has many demands to fund its charitable mission to care for and re-home the neglected, abused, abandoned, stray, and unwanted cats and dogs of the community. In addition, the Shelter is developing long-term plans to expand its facility and services. The support of the community has always been critical to its success and will be even more critical as the Shelter grows. There are many ways to financial support the Shelter, both immediate and deferred giving. Please review the information below to find a donation plan that meets your needs and budget. As a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, all donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.


The Shelter is always happy to receive one-time donations in all forms. Donations can be made by check and mailed to our address. Donors may make donations with a credit or debit card. Donations can also be made using a PayPal account for donors preferring not to use their credit or debit card.

Donations by check may be mailed to:

                                Franklin, NH 03235-0265


The Shelter maintains a MEMORIALS page. Donors may make a donation in memory of a relative, friend, or cherished pet. The donor's memoriam will be posted on our MEMORIALS page for six months. Memorial donations can be made through the MEMORIALS page or here by clicking the button below.


A pledge is a donation made in scheduled payments over a period of time. A pledge allows a supporter the ability to make a more significant commitment than they might otherwise make in a one-time donation and spread payments over any period of time of their choice. A pledge has advantages for both the donor and the Shelter. For the donor, their commitment to the Shelter and its mission can be significant, but paid in periodic increments which fit comfortably into the donor's budget. Pledge payments made during the year are tax-deductible just like one-time donations. The Shelter benefits through pledges in two ways. The first being the benefit of the payments made during the pledge period. More importantly, the Shelter has the benefit of having a defined future income stream which aids financial planning.
