Jacksonville Humane Society
Because of generous donations from compassionate communities such as ours The Jacksonville Humane Society broke ground this summer for a brand new Adoption and Education Center. I am so pleased to report that our Deercreek Women’s Alliance 2016 JHS donation of $1,000 was doubled because we were able to take advantage of a Dollar for Dollar Match Program that was being offered at the time. Our DWA donation turned into $2,000!!
The new center will allow JHS to house all animals indoors in climate-controlled kennels, something they have not been able to do before.
In addition to the 2016 DWA $2,000 donation mentioned above, our Deercreek Community has donated pet food, blankets, towels, pet carriers, food and water bowls, paper towels, laundry and dish detergent and pet treats. Any of these supplies would be very much appreciated during this month’s DWA Drive for the Jacksonville Humane Society which will be held Thursday, September 9 to 22. A donation bin will be placed at the DCC Guardhouse or they can be dropped off at the home of Pam Overbay at 10042 Chester Lake Rd E, 363-6483.
The Jacksonville Humane Society Campus is located at 8464 Beach Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32216. The Campus includes an Animal Hospital that offers affordable veterinarian care to our community. Animal Hospital appointments are available Monday through Saturday and the Adoption Center is open 7 days a week.
