Our mission is to support Central Florida animal welfare by granting funds to local non-profit and government agencies.
Our mission is to support Central Florida animal welfare by granting funds to local non-profit and government agencies for shelter/rescue, spay/neuter, and community education programs.
We are a strictly volunteer organization with no paid employees. We pride ourselves on fiscal and veterinary responsibility.
We started as a handful of pet lovers who came together to raise money for Central Florida animal welfare. Since then we have grown into a 501(c)(3) non profit organization made up of several hundred volunteers.
Franklin's Friends raises money primarily through two signature events - HOWL-O-WEEN and the "Unleashed. Uncorked. Unframed." gala.
We are proud to have raised over $192,000 in 2018 to help needy pets in Central Florida.
Over the past fifteen years we have raised over $1.5 million dollars for local animal welfare.
Help us reach our 2019 goal of $200,000!
Your donations will directly support the needs of local organizations dedicated to shelter/rescue, spay/neuter, and community education programs.
