Sponsor a shelter dog by making a donation to us and adding a frame to their listing
You can honor someone special to you while helping to save the life of a Shelter dog. Make a $35 donation towards Friends of the Shelter, and we will proudly display your name or dedication of your choice on the photo of a dog currently looking for a forever home...a life YOU have helped save. We will display your dedication in a frame around your chosen dog on the Franklin County Dogs Website.
Before you start...
First, this page has recently changed!
The process is slightly different now, with Step 1 having you submit all information including your frame choice, then finishing with Step 2 where you only submit your donation.
Also, this page is specifically for sponsoring adoptable dogs by making a donation to Friends of the Shelter then adding a frame to their adoption listing.
If you have questions about an adoptable dog at the Franklin County Dog Shelter, please use the Shelter's Contact Us page to contact the Shelter.
