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.





Blanch is the JHS Pet of the Week! She came to JHS in July of this year, with 4 kittens. She raised her babies to be healthy little kitties, and now they are off with their new families. Blanch is ready to come home with you and keep your lap warm this winter. She is very sweet, and loves affection. Her kitty condo is set up in the Boutique at JHS. Please stop in for a visit, you might leave with a new friend.
