The Jackson County Animal Shelter is proud to match families with animal companions. We strive to help re-home our animals with two goals in mind-- saving lives and helping you find an irreplaceable animal companion.
What You Need to Know
Adopting an animal usually costs $70 for dogs and $55 for cats. This fee includes a voucher for spay or neuter at selected veterinarians, a rabies vaccine, and a housing fee. (You will receive a coupon to present to your veterinarian). Fees are reduced for animals that have already been spayed/neutered and/or received a rabies vaccination.
To adopt an animal, you must provide your driver's license and physical address.
All dogs and puppies must leave the Shelter with a collar and leash; you can purchase those items at the Shelter or bring them with you when come to adopt.
All cats and kittens must leave the Shelter in a carrier; please bring one with you when you come to adopt.
