About Us

Located in Rocky Mount, Virginia, the Franklin County Humane Society was founded in 1978 to prevent cruelty to animals.

Planned Pethood Clinic:

We opened our low cost spay/neuter clinic in 2000. Our goal at our Planned Pethood Clinic is to stop the needless destruction of healthy dogs, cats, puppies and kittens by reducing pet overpopulation. High volume low cost spay neuter is essential to is to reduce the numbers of animals entering shelters and pounds each year.

Our affordable spay/neuter prices are subsidized by donations. Please consider a donation to “Spay it Forward” for the animals.


Purrfect Treasures:

We opened our Purrfect Treasures fundraising store in 2007. Located next door to our Adoption Center, all proceeds go to care for the animals at the Adoption Center.


Adoption Center:

We opened our Adoption Center in 2009. Our Adoption Center is a wonderful and happy place that provides a safe haven for homeless pets until they go to their forever homes. Our high visibility location and large windows that fill the rooms with light demonstrate our idea to market our pets in a pleasant setting and encourage you to “adopt don’t shop” for your next pet companion.

Dogs relax in large Doggie Dens on the lower level. They go outside to exercise several times a day in large fenced areas and enjoy a good game of Jolly Ball with friends. Puppies are housed on the upper level in a Puppy Room with Puppy Pens and an open area for play. There is a Puppy Play Yard for outdoor romps.

Kittens and cats are housed in the Kitten Room and the Cat Room on the upper level. Both rooms have large storefront windows that bring in light and provide visual stimulation. Cats enjoy climbing ladders to perches on top of the Cat Condos.

The Adoption Center also has Animal Food Kitchens, a Grooming Room and quarantine rooms to house new arrivals.

The original part of the building houses Planned Pethood Clinic on the lower level and staff kitchen, break room and offices on the upper level. All Adoption Center animals have an examination, vaccinations, tests and parasite treatment upon arrival. They are spayed/neutered and microchipped.

Please stop by to visit with the animals. Even if you aren't ready to adopt a new companion pet, our dogs are always happy to get an extra walk and the puppies, cats and kittens love some extra attention.
