We will again this year be offering pet portraits with Santa on Saturday, November 28th at Riverside Park in Apalachicola.  Santa will arrive at 1:00 p.m. atop a fire engine and you are invited to bring your pet for a pet portrait with Santa.
For a $5.00 donation to the Humane Society you may take a picture of your pet with Santa on your phone or traditional camera.  Following will be a holiday costume contest with prizes for the top 3 contestants. The contest will be at 3:00 pm. 

Be sure to mark your calendars.  You don't want to miss out on this holiday tradition!

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.
