Jacksonville Humane Society
The Jacksonville Humane Society is a 501c3 non-profit, no-kill animal shelter and does not euthanize healthy or treatable companion animals in our care. JHS is also a member of No Kill Jacksonville, a collaboration between JHS, Animal Care & Protective Services and First Coast No More Homeless Pets to help Jacksonville achieve no kill status. By working together, the three agencies created a community where no adoptable animal is killed due to lack of space since 2014.
In 2018, JHS has found homes for over 2500 dogs and cats; placed more than 1,000 kittens into foster homes; completed more than 2,000 spay, neuter and specialized surgeries for shelter and community pets; served more than 1,300 families through their Pet Help Center; and provided more than 500 children with humane education opportunities.
For more information on kids’ camps, field trips, cat yoga, training classes, volunteering and other ways to get involved at JHS, please go to their website at www.jaxhumane.org. Any old towels and blankets or dog/cat supplies are very much appreciated and can be dropped off at Jill Cole’s house: 8233 Persimmon Hill Ln. JHS hopes that the next time you are looking for a new family pet — Adopt, don’t shop!
