Save a shelter dog and promote your organization by sponsoring one of our events!

Each year, Friends of the Shelter funds over $150,000 in medical care for sick and injured dogs at the Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center. These innovative medical programs made available to the shelter dogs are not funded by local tax dollars. The medical bills are funded by Friends of the Shelter, an all-volunteer, 501c3 non-profit organization. The programs that directly aid our Shelter dogs are financially dependent on Friends of the Shelter and generous individuals like you who help us help our community’s innocent, homeless dogs.

Sounds great! How can I help?
