The Franklin County Humane Society invites you to join with us to make Franklin County a better place in which to live, for both people and animals.  

Because of generous donors, we are able to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome hundreds of dogs and cats every year. You can make a difference for animals in our community!

Our costs to get pets ready for adoption (food, spaying and neutering, all shots, and any necessary tests, medications or treatments) and to pay our excellent staff to care for them, far exceed our adoption fees.
