Our Mission

We have two locations.  Our main shelter is at 2020 Forest Street (near I-10 and I-95) and in Mandarin on San Jose Blvd.  You can reach our main shelter at (904) 630-CITY or our Mandarin location at (904) 886-4375. 



We are the City of Jacksonville animal code enforcement and public open admission shelter.  Our goal is to find good homes for homeless cats and dogs. 

Adoption Policy

Looking for puppies and kittens?  We always have them!  They are not always listed on this site as they get adopted more quickly than adults.  For more info go to our site at http://www.coj.net/pets. 



Two locations: 2020 Forest Street by Riverside Ave and in Mandarin on San Jose Blvd across from Target.
