JHS Wish List

If you’d like to help the dogs and cats at the Jacksonville Humane Society, please consider donating any of the items on the Wish List below. For questions or to learn how you can start your own wish list drive for the pets, please call 904-725-8766 ext 4566.


Looking for an easy way to donate?

Ship right our front door using our Amazon wish list! Click here to start.

We want to thank you when you send donations from our Amazon Wishlist, so be sure to check “this is a gift” before you place the order so Amazon sends your info along with the donations. Otherwise, we will receive your donation but not your information.

Don’t forget to use smile.amazon.com and select the Jacksonville Humane Society as your charity! That way, anytime you shop on Amazon.com, a percent of your sale, regardless of what you buy, will be donated to JHS from Amazon. It’s never been easier to give!

What Happened to the Thrift Store?

For many years, JHS operated a thrift store on the corner of Foster Drive and Beach Blvd. The thrift store closed in March of 2015 and the building was demolished in October 2015. There are not current plans to rebuild the thrift store at this time.
