Our priority is to find the best possible home for our dogs and cats as soon as possible, we want to get them out of the stress of kennel life. So we do adopt to out of state adopters, we believe limiting to only in-state is not in the best interest of our dogs and cats. We are sorry though, we do not accept checks or credit cards at the shelter. . Please email for more info.

About Our Shelter:

The Jackson County Humane Society is a no-kill shelter.Besides saving local dogs and cats, dogs and cats are saved throughout the country with our "Saving Death Row Dogs & Cats" programs and transports. Where dogs and cats from high kill shelters from across the nation are transported to JCHS to find loving homes. Dogs and cats will remain and be taken care of (walking, socializing, all vet care, food, water, shelter) until they are adopted. Founded in 1974, the Jackson County Humane Society advocates the humane treatment of animals and find permanent loving homes for the cats and dogs in our care. We are a non-profit organization that relies mostly on the generosity of compassionate people donating money, volunteering their professional services, volunteering their valuable time at the shelter, at adoption fairs, and working at or hosting fundraising events. Being a non-profit your donations are tax deductible. Any kind of help and all donations would be greatly appreciated.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
