There are many ways to contribute and support the Franklin Animal Shelter. If you're unable to support financially, we are always looking for volunteers and donations of items of everyday use such as cleaning products, food for the animals, litter, etc.

Our Annual Appeal helps close the funding gap between our annual income and our expense budget. Details below...

We are in our expanded space.  However, the campaign funding is still short to complete the work.  

Make a tax deductible donation to support the shelter with everyday expenses, vet visits, and more.

You may remember this sweet face. It just now has some gray. Missy is back and ready to be adopted by her forever home. Missy is eight years old. She has arthritis, allergies, and she does not get along with other animals whatsoever, not negotiable in her world. If you adopt Missy, you will have the most loving, goofy, comical, talkative, gentle, and snuggly dog in the whole wide world. Missy has not had an easy road as this is her fourth time at the shelter. She needs a very special home where she can be the one and only, spoiled girl. She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and blood tests. Please come fall in love with Missy. She is so deserving!


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 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 who is abusing or neglecting an animal, please contact your local Police Department or Animal Control Officer to report it. The Franklin Animal Shelter is not an enforcement agency, but you may contact the shelter at (603) 934-4132 for additional assistance. Be the voice for those who can't speak for themselves.
