Our Mission

Mission Statement

The Jessamine County Animal Shelter's mission is to provide services which safeguard the public health and safety, to humanely house and care for animals in its charge, to protect the animals of the community from neglect, and to provide its citizens with information concerning responsible ownership.

We are under the control of the Jessamine Co. Fiscal Court


Adoption Policy

Stop by the shelter or an adoption event to fill out the adoption application. We also have the application online: 

After your references are checked (and landlord for renters), you will be notified.  We can usually get this all done in one day (except Saturdays and Tuesdays). 

After your application is approved, your new family member will be spayed/neutered, receive any remaining shots (including rabies), be microchipped, and get a fecal before you take him/her home.
