Mission Statement

The Jacksonville Humane Society provides care, comfort and compassion to animals in need while engaging the hearts, hands and minds of our community to bring about an end to the killing of abandoned and orphaned shelter animals.





Sadie, Sadie, Pretty Lady! If a loving companion is what you seek, come see Sadie - the JHS Pet of the Week! Sadie has been at JHS for 110 days due to injuries and skin conditions that needed to be treated. Sadie says "Please look past m...y skin and into my beautiful heart." Sadie loves people, and is so happy to see them she wags her whole bottom, not just her tail.  Because Sadie is older than 3 and weighs more than 30 pounds, her adoption fee is $0. Other fees apply (rabies tag, and license if applicable). If you have room in your heart and home for Sadie, please visit her at the Jacksonville Humane Society.
