Our Pet List

PACC tries to keep this webpage up to date but due to limited resouces and volunteers it may not be updated as quickly as animals enter the Franklin Animal Shelter. If you or someone you know is willing to donate an hour a week to taking pictures and descriptions of the pets at the shelter please contact PACC by emailing us and we will happily keep this web page current for the city and assist the city in finding homes for their shelter pets. PACC is a non-profit animal welfare group that operates separately from the City Shelter but we try to help when we can and one of the ways we try is to keep this website up and running for the city so that the pets can been seen by hundreds.
