Santa has a special day devoted to hearing wishes from his furry friends on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 29th in Apalachicola from 1:00-3:30 at Riverside Park. 
There will be a pet costume contest at 3:00 and special treats for dogs. Bring your camera and make a $5.00 donation to the Franklin County Humane Society and have your pets photo taken with Santa.
If you are considering adopting a pet in time for the holidays, we will have adoptable pets available for your consideration as well as hats and t-shirts for purchase.  
So plan to make a day of it by visiting Santa and shopping in all the wonderful shops and boutiques in Apalach!

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.
