Transition Manager Job Description

Welcome to the Franklin County Animal Rescue website, and thank you for being a part of a responsible, responsive community that cares about its animals. 

The shelter is temporarily closed to the public while financial details are being worked out. But many people have come together and are working hard to reopen the shelter, and you can expect this important community resource to be serving the people and pets of Franklin County very soon.  

Want to help?  Email business@ or make a donation using the button on this website. Or check our Facebook page for volunteer opportunities!


If you otherwise have a pet in need, please contact the Chittenden County Humane Society at 802-862-0135 or bestfriends@ 

Check this website regularly for updates.

Thank you for your interest!
