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).
Humane America Animal Foundation, dba Adopt-a-Pet.com, is a non-profit, tax-deductible 501(c)(3) adoption advertising charity. Our mission (and passion) is to help
get homeless pets out of the shelters and into loving homes. Let us know what you think! Suggestion & Comment Box
