Jackson County Animal Shelter

Please provide a warm place for your furry friends during the winter months!
Donate a Bed
Our dogs and cats love to sleep on Kuranda beds, but we don't have enough for everyone. If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price for a another dog or cat to sleep in comfort, please donate a Kuranda bed.

Our Pet List


Who We Are

We are a county operated shelter serving all of Jackson County in Western NC. All of our animals have LIMITED time!!!

Adopting a friend

Our Adoption Fee is $70 for dogs and $55 for cats. This fee pays for the rabies vaccine and the spay/ neuter at participating veterinarians. Both vaccine and spay/ neuter are mandatory for all adopters. Fees are adjusted for animals that are already spayed/neutered or current on their rabies shot. All dogs and puppies are required to leave with a collar and leash. All cats and kittens are required to leave in a carrier cage.

Come Visit Us!

We have many animals besides those pictured here. All have limited time. Most are under 2 years old, and some are purebreds or are already spayed/neutered.. Click here for directions from your location and call 828.586.6138 for complete directions.
