Press release

The Franklin Animal Shelter Board of Directors want to thank you for your continued support 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 regularly 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. The following programs are in place, and we are excited and very much appreciate the efforts of those who continue to promote our shelter with the following events.

Did you know Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice? The Franklin Animal Shelter is part of the AmazonSmile family!

Woof II: The Tail Continues
Through August 31st, the League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Fine Craft Gallery will host an exhibit of fine craft titled “Woof II: The Tail Continues” dedicated to man’s best friend. 10% of the proceeds for every dog item sold will be donated to the Franklin Animal Shelter.

Participating League juried artists have created works of art specifically to honor furry friends. Artists Karen Mitchell has created dog-themed silver jewelry for the dog fanatic in your life, Dawn Blanchard with her dog prints to hang on your wall, or Cheryl Miller’s fabric collages depicting dogs to decorate your home.

You can commission Michael Updike to hand-carve a portrait of your furry friend in recycled slate tile, or have Becky Sawyer capture your dog’s likeness with her colored pencils on polystyrene. They have something for every dog lover to enjoy during the month of August.
