    by: lakesidejenn

    The Jacksonville Humane Society is where I adopted my dog, Penny. I think they are a fantastic organization and I was just sick when they had their fire. I'm so glad they have rebuilt and I look forward to a visit. My husband doesn't let me go too much, cause we always bring one home (we have 6 all together). I always support their fundraisers when they come my way.


    Brand New Facility

  • 2. Trial By Fire

    by: PVCGuy

    The Jacksonville Humane Society provides a very needed service to the pet population of the community. They had a large fire some time back that almost destroyed all of their facility. The community did rally to their need and they are back to almost normal again. This is thanks to the many volunteers and donations that have helped them recover. This is but one of several shelters in our area and maybe the most recognized by the public. The have a Thrift Store that helps to raise funds by selling donated items to the public. The old thrift store was located on the property and was very run down, but thanks to a donor they now have a clean and modern building to house the store and it was a gift and is located on a major road which helps to attract customers. The thrift store is a good way to help rasie funds. I think more shelters should consider this method as a means to get more money to take care of their needs.


    Easy to access and a very dedicated staff


    Needs more room and still recovering from loss by fire.

    they had a fire recently & lost everything. The people there risked their lives to save as many anilals as they could. I got my dog Lincoln there & we go back & visit sometimes.


    great with all the animals

    I made my first visit to this shelter last week and considering they had a fire a year or so ago and haven't replaced all their buildings, their temporary facility is quite nice. Very clean, the receptionist in Adoptions very friendly and the animals seemed healthy and well cared for.
