I'm so happy I found the best dog for me there, 5 days ago. I wanted her immediately, but felt I should look at other dogs as well. The staff are so helpful and friendly to allow us to walk her outside, then asked to take 4 more dogs, staff is so patient! Love,love this place, and I did choose the 1st dog! She is beautiful! Jana

What a Great Place to find a pet

I got my purebred Shif Tzu there and now I just started to volunteer there. The volunteer leader-LOU- is wonderful and its' soooooo great seeing the dogs go to new forever homes. Go down and check them out for what you're looking for. Go more then once if you need to. It paid off for me.



They try hard to help dogs

If you have ever gone to Mingle with the Mutts (2 Sundays a month) at Franklin County Dog Shelter, you will see that this shelter tries hard to bring people together to help dogs find the best homes possible. The old facility services the entire county of Franklin - a huge task - & they do the very best they can. The many volunteers are completely dedicated to making life a little easier for the large numbers of homeless dogs. They desperately need a new building!

We got a dog here

These people care about their dogs. Not the best kept place in the world ... but they do ok for the money they have to work with. Once you step food in there, you'll want to resuce every dog in the place.
