Silent Night

Silent Night is our favorite holiday tradition here at JHS; make it one of yours this year and give a pet a temporary home for the holidays.

Do you currently live in a home or apartment without kids or pets? Some of our shelter pets prefer a home without other animals or children. If you can provide a home such as this to a shelter pet during the holidays, we want to hear from you. Please click here to fill out a brief form. If you have other pets at home, you are still welcome to participate in Silent Night. This information is simply to help us find a good fit for our pets who have a distinct need.

 How does it work?

– Stop by the Jacksonville Humane Society or Animal Care and Protective Services between December 17-24, 2020 and choose a pet to take home on a sleepover. Our staff will help you find the right fit for your home. (If possible, please bring a new or gently used collar and leash with you at the time of pick-up. If you plan to take a cat home, you can bring a new or gently used carrier.)
– Your furry guest will stay with you until December 26 so that they can enjoy the holidays in a home.
– Return your pet on December 26 – or adopt!

Is there a cost?

– No – it doesn’t cost anything to participate in Silent Night.

Are any other shelters participating?

– Yes! Our partners at Animal Care & Protective Services are participating in Silent Night this year. You can stop by their facility between December 17-24, 2020 and take home a Silent Night pet.
