Shelter & animals needs improvments
posted 2 years ago
Dogs and cats have many fleas and ticks. Cages and kennels need to be cleaner. Cats kept in little cages never get out or get petted or human attention. Dogs never get out of kennels to play, they don't get human attention, get walked, get petting, playtime with each other. Staff and workers need more experience and knowledge and to be more courteous and less rude. Promises made need to be kept.
Pros: no kill

Hard Working Small Shelter
posted 4 years ago
The Jackson County Humane Society is a no-kill no-refusal shelter. Dogs and cats will remain and be taken care of (walking, socializing, all vet care, food, water, and lots of love) until they are adopted. There are few paid employees. The board members and volunteers are involved in all aspects, events, shelter needs and care of approx. 28 dogs and 35 cats at the shelter (including financially funding with their own money). As you can see, this is a very compassionate and generous group of people involved in Jackson County Humane Society. Remember that huge amounts of personal time and money is used to keep the shelter going for the safety and wellbeing of the dogs and cats. Any kind of help they get would be greatly appreciated. JCHS is a non-profit organization that relies mostly on the generousity of compassionate people donating money, volunteering their professional services. Being a non-profit your donations are tax deductable. JCHS provides safe shelter, nutrition and health care, spay/neutering, social interaction, love and lots of cuddling for dogs and cats until we can find a loving permanent home for them. The prices are very reasonable, and obviously do not even cover their costs of caring for the animals. Dogs are only $70. Cats are only $55. Adoption fees include Spay/neuter surgery, Up-to-date vaccinations, with voucher for rabies. You really can't go wrong adopting from Jackson County Humane Society. And all monetary donations go mostly to the care of the dogs and cats...not to administration costs and wages. Please help this shelter as best as you can, their main priority is for the cats and dogs in their care.
Pros: No-Kill, No-Refuse
Cons: Need more help and finances
