If you are looking for your soul-mutt, you've come to the right place! The dogs are mostly in medium to large sizes.
We also sometimes have cats and kittens available so check out their furry faces too!
The "Happy Tails" section of the website features animals that have already been adopted out.

Who We Are
We are a non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status. There is no shelter in our county and no animal control and no vet. We are volunteers working to keep Jackson County pet-friendly and help reduce the population of unwanted animals through spaying/neutering and education. We encourage all pet owners to have their pets spayed or neutered! Our focus is reducing the unwanted pet population through prevention and we've helped fix over 3,520 animals to date, including 225 in 2012 and 203 in 2013. Our goal is 200 again in 2014. What this really means is the prevention of thousands of unwanted kittens and puppies. Those are the numbers that count!
We cannot fix all the animal problems in Jackson County, but we can fix all the animals!
If you are a Jackson County resident and would like financial assistance to have your pet spayed or neutered, please call 268-1866.
If your animals are spayed/neutered and need new homes, we can post on this website and refer interested adopters to you. To date, we've helped over 500 happy dogs and cats find homes!
