Dear Shelter Community,


As these difficult times continue, 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 on a weekly basis 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

FEATURED PET: Nolan

Are you looking for a big hunk of love? Well, look no further. Meet Nolan. He is American Staffordshire Terrier and approximately two years old. He is full of energy and loves to play, but also loves to be pet. Due to his 56 pounds of strength, we suggest older children in the home and no cats. Another dog in the home may be possible with proper introduction. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and ready to start a new adventure. Come meet Nolan and have a friend for life!

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.
