Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are the municipal shelter for Teton County, Wyoming, which includes Jackson; Wilson; Hoback; Moose; Moran; Kelly; and Grand Teton National park.

About Our Shelter:

The Jackson/Teton County Animal Shelter provides humane care to, and provides homes for, lost and abandoned companion animals. Jointly funded by the Town and County for basic operations, it utilizes donations for the spay/neuter and special veterinary treatment that may be required by these shelter animals. Basic operations include the enforcement of animal control reguations, lost and found pets, licensing, surrenders & adoptions, and the loan of equipment (live traps etc.). The Shelter is also tasked with educating the public on responsible animal care and ownership. While called a 'shelter', it goes above and beyond just sheltering animals. Programs are in place to enrich the lives of these animals; volunteers walk and train dogs daily, and socialize with cats. Please feel free to contact us with any questions regarding services provided and general policies.

Come Meet our Pets:

The Shelter is located on Adams Canyon, up the hill from the Recycling Center just south of Town. Hours of operation are 9-6 M-F and 10-2 on Saturday.

Our Adoption Process:

We request that potential adopters think seriously about their housing for the future. The lack of pet-friendly housing is one of the primary reasons why animals are surrendered to this Shelter. Other than that, the adoption process is simple and straightforward.

The adoption fee for a dog is $45, for a cat $30. We pay for the spay/neuter of the animal (if it is not already done) thanks to generous donations. If an animal is not current on its rabies vaccination, an additional $15 will be charged and the adopter will be provided with a certificate to take to their veterinarian so the vaccination can be administered. If the adopter lives within Teton County, the animal will also be licensed before leaving the Shelter ($1 for fixed animals).

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.
