Our Mission:

Create A Shelter

Working Together to Provide a Shelter for our Homeless Pets!


Franklin County has a problem. We have no shelter for homeless pets! A group of concerned citizens saw the need for an animal shelter that could serve the entire county, and hence, PAWS of Franklin County was born. Providing Animals With Shelter and Homes is our main goal!

Helpful Resources

We Are Helping Our Community Help Those in Need.


PAWS is building a network of resources to help animals now, while we work on creating a shelter to reduce the number of homeless pets in Franklin County, providing them a safe, caring environment while they wait for loving new homes.

If you have an animal in need, we have a list of resources that can help you.
