This is the time of year every year when shelters all across the United States fill up with litters and litters of kittens.  These babies come in alone, with litter mates, with mamas and without their moms.  Some need to be bottle fed and some need to be introduced to solid food for the first time.  The thing they all need.....a home.
We have dozens of kittens right now.  Most of them are between 3-5 weeks so they need a lot of care.  We have several litters in foster care and welcome volunteers who would like to come in during the day to help feed and socialize these babies.
Many will be ready for their forever home in about a month but in the meantime, come to the shelter, choose a kitten to adopt and spend time interacting and carring for it until you can take it home.

The Franklin County Humane Society is a not for profit facility nestled in the woods at the edge of the Tate's Hell National Forest, a little over a mile from the Gulf of Mexico.  We have been in existence since 1991.  We were born of the desire & hard work initiated by Veterinarian, Dr. Hobson Fulmer, to have a facility that could better the lives of our many homeless animals.  We continue to grow and improve our services to better care for the many homeless and unwanted pets that come into our shelter.  Providing safe haven, medical care, food and loving attention until our pets are adopted is our primary goal.  We are a non-profit organization operating in Franklin County, Florida. Our mission is to relieve animal suffering, prevent animal cruelty, eliminate animal over population, promote humane education and to enhance the human to animal bond.
