Our History

The Regional Dog Shelter was the vision of Sheriff Christopher Donelan who saw the need in the community for a dog sheltering facility. In 2012, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office was awarded a twenty thousand dollar grant to be used for the refurbishing of an old town building, to turn it into a working Shelter.  Inmates in the (pre-release) program at Franklin County Correctional Institute worked for several months turning an empty storage building into a usable facility.
