About Jefferson County Animal Control
About Our Shelter...
The Jefferson County Animal Control is a non-profit organization that is a county funded shelter.
We are the homes for the animals who were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time or just surrendered by their owners. Some didn't find their way home and were without an I.D tag to reunite them with their owners.
We get so many new animals in our shelter every day, they all have a very limited time to be adopted. The shelter can't hold animals until we find the perfect home, there are simply too many arriving on a daily basis. All these animals need to move out as quickly as they come in. Many people are bringing litters of animals in and we do not have the space we desperately need for them to have a chance.
