As we begin the New Year, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our supporters, volunteers, fosters, donors and adopters.  Without the help of all of you, this Humane Society could not do the work we do and the 600 animals that passed through our door in 2016 would never have had a chance.  
Since they can't speak for themselves, please allow us to thank you on their behalf and assure you that your time, talent and donations saved lives that would have been lost otherwise.
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!
We will be in attendance at the 7th annual Apalachicola Oyster Cook-Off on Saturday, January 15th.  We will have puppies, dogs, cats and kittens available for adoption and our Franklin County Humane Society t-shirts will be available for purchase.  Please be sure to stop by our adoption tent to say hello and spend some time interacting with our pets.  They love the extra attention and we enjoy seeing old friends and meeting new ones.
The Apalachicola Mardi Gras Barkus Parade is being held on Saturday, February 25th in downtown Apalach beginning at 1:00 pm.
This years theme is BARK SIDE OF THE MOON so aliens, astronauts, and all kinds of space creatures will be roaming the streets.  Come celebrate Mardi Gras Apalach style!
You may walk, ride in golf carts or boats, pull wagons, push strollers or come up with any other unique form of transportation or just come and catch beads and enjoy the fun.
The parade begins at 1:00 pm in the Bowery district and winds through town ending at a free party with live music, dancing, Cajun food, contests and all kinds of lively fun.  Registration for walkers is $5.00 per person and of course dogs are free.
For more information or to pre-register, call 850-670-5064 or go to  All proceeds benefit the Franklin County Humane Society and the Apalachicola dog park.
Our Seniors for Seniors program is off to a great start.  We are averaging an adoption a month.  This program is allowing us to quickly place our older pets into homes with older adopters.  So often senior dogs and cats are overlooked in a shelter even though they have many years of love left to give.  
If you or someone you know would like to adopt a senior pet, fee free, please call 850-670-8417.  Starting 2017 with a "new to you" family pet is sure to make this year a special one.
Noel was brought to us two weeks before Christmas with 2, ten day old puppies. They were found in the woods in Eastpoint and by the look of her, she had been out there for awhile.  Although understandably scared, she was gentle and allowed us to handle her and her puppies without incident.
She and her pups were suffering from severe mange and intestinal parasites. They required treatment for the skin that included weeks of antibiotics and medication for three different types of intestinal parasites.  They responded well to treatment, their skin improved rapidly, and they all gained weight.
We are still housing them here at the Adoption Center but we have plans for Noel to go into foster care once the pups are weaned.  She is still fearful of people she doesn't know but we are hopeful that with some time spent in a home with a loving foster, she will overcome her fear and gain the confidence she needs to live a full and happy life.
