Franklin County Humane Society (dba Franklin County Animal Rescue) promotes the health, welfare and humane treatment of animals in Northwestern Vermont and provides temporary shelter for them with the ultimate goal of finding them good, permanent homes within the community.
Franklin County Animal Rescue has grown from a totally volunteer effort by a small group of concerned residents to an incorporated 501c3 non-profit organization that is privately owned and receives no government funding. The future of FCAR depends totally on caring, generous individuals to ensure its ability to shelter these animals until they can find their rightly deserved loving permanent homes.
After 50 years as Franklin County Humane Society, in 2015 the name was changed to Franklin County Animal Rescue to better reflect the current mission and purpose of the shelter; a focus on the homeless cats and dogs of the community. In an effort to give the shelter a more current, updated image, the logo was redone as well.
