Joy to Your World


The Jacksonville Humane Society (JHS) is participating in Best Friend Animal Society's "Bring Joy to Your World" adoption event. JHS is spotlighting our 12 Cats of Christmas, and 12 Dogs of Christmas. Each of the spotlighted animals has a special kennel card and a special adoption fee of $25.
