About the Society

The American Humane Association statistics state that 10 million animals are euthanized (put to sleep) annually; 56% of all dogs and 76% of all cats.  We at Franklin County Humane Society are striving to do our part to end this tragic situation, through fund raising, education, community awareness, volunteer & fostering programs and more.  Our facility is working towards an effecient overall program to make the unnecessary suffering of our companion animals a thing of the past.

Who We Are:
The Franklin County Humane Society is a not for profit facility nestled in the woods at the edge of the Tate's Hell National Forest, a little over a mile from the Gulf of Mexico.  We have been in existence since 1991.  We were born of the desire & hard work initiated by Veterinarian, Dr. Hobson Fulmer, to have a facility that could better the lives of our many homeless animals.  We continue to grow and improve our services to better care for the many homeless and unwanted pets that come into our shelter.  Providing safe haven, medical care, food and loving attention until our pets are adopted is our primary goal.  We are a non-profit organization operating in Franklin County, Florida. Our mission is to relieve animal suffering, prevent animal cruelty, eliminate animal over population, promote humane education and to enhance the human to animal bond.

Adopting a Friend:
Adoption fees are: puppies under 4 mos old $150.00, puppies older than 4 mos and small breed dogs $125.00, purebreds $150.00, all others $100.00. When animals leave the Franklin County Humane Society they are spayed or neutered and up to date on their vaccinations.  We invite you to come by our facility and visit our pets available for adoption and open your hearts and homes to them! Our hours of operation are Monday-Saturday 10 am to 4 pm.  We are closed on Sunday. We are always looking for compassionate volunteers & foster parents who want to make a difference in an animal's life. If you are interested please contact us at 850-670-8417 or contact us here.
