Adoption Policy

We are located in West TN. We do local adoptions with the adopter picking the pet up directly from our facility and out-of-state adoptions, which utilize a private transport company to ensure the pet gets safely to their new parent.

Our adoption process is very straightforward. We have a one-page adoption application to enable us to match you with currently available pets and help us determine if the pet you are interested in is a good fit for your home dynamic.

After application approval, the adopter will pay the fee listed on the pet's profile, and arrangements will be made for them to pick up the pet from the shelter or our transport partner if the adopter is outside TN. If the adopter is outside TN, the posted adoption fee includes a legally required interstate health certificate and transport cost.

All of our pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm negative, screened for obvious health issues, and treated for any injury they may have had when they came into our facility. Upon adoption, we provide the new pet parents copies of all available medical and behavioral paperwork for the animal they are adopting.

We strive to be VERY transparent with our potential adopters because we want all our pets to find homes that will last the rest of their lives. We are happy to discuss the pet's behavior, personality, quirks, special needs, etc., and will address or discuss any concerns the potential adopter may have. Please feel free to reach out to us directly by phone or email for more information.

*We reserve the right to refuse an adoption for any reason, but the goal of JACC is to find the RIGHT home for every pet in our program. Even though an adopter might not be a great fit for a particular pet, they might be a great option for a different one.
