SPAY/NEUTER VOUCHER PROGRAM
FCHS launched the first low cost spay/neuter program in this county in the spring of 2011. Its' purpose is to assist low-income families with the cost of the surgery and rabies vaccination. There is a $20.00 co-pay that the owner is responsible for and the Humane Society pays the balance.
We have issued 292 vouchers to-date. These vouchers were used to alter pets that otherwise wouldn't have been altered and most likely would have reproduced.
We raise money through fundraising and grant writing and through donations from individuals. If you would like to assist us in our efforts to reduce the unwanted pet population in Franklin County, please send a contribution ear-marked "voucher program" to 244 Hwy 65, Eastpoint, FL 32328.
We are committed to this effort and hope that in years to come, we will see a substantial decrease in unwanted pets due to our efforts now.
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.
