Interested in Volunteering?

If you’re looking for a way to give back, come volunteer at the animal shelter! You’ll be doing something to be proud of, and you’ll have fun!

At the Franklin County Animal Shelter we thrive off of help from volunteers and the community. There is always work to be done and the more caring and generous volunteers we have the better! Volunteer duties vary greatly on a daily basis, but here are a few things volunteers regularly do:

  • Care for cats and dogs
  • Attend community events
  • Office organization
  • Daily cleaning and laundry
  • Be around adorable animals!

So if you want to spend some time helping our cats and dogs, fill out our volunteer application. Or if you have some more questions, feel free to email Erin Miner, our volunteer coordinator at
