About the Shelter

Animal Harbor is a limited-admission animal shelter facility serving Franklin County, Tennessee. It is operated by members of The Franklin County Humane Society, a private non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Animal Harbor opened its doors in February of 2003. It was the first animal shelter in Franklin County.            

The shelter operates under a no-kill philosophy-- we do not euthanize pets for space. Once a dog or cat is admitted to Animal Harbor, it receives the best of care. All of our pets are inoculated, wormed, and spayed or neutered at the appropriate age. 


Animal Harbor is located at 25 Walnut Grove Road-- at the corner of Highway 64 and Walnut Grove Road. This is nine miles south-west of downtown Winchester, Tennessee, just past Belvidere, Tennessee, going toward Huntland, Tennessee. Coming south just past Belvidere, watch for a favorite local landmark, the Swiss Pantry, and Animal Harbor will be one mile further, on the right. Click here for map.
