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.





Tegan has been doing the shelter circuit since 2013, due to no fault of her own. Displacement, hard times, and other human misfortunes have resulted in Tegan being at Clay County, ACPS (twice), and JHS - twice. A total bummer for such a loving girl. Tegan is ready to retire from the shelter tour. She is ready to give up the grind of the miles of road in the rescue van. While she appreciates the throngs of fans that come in and give her treats, she is ready to leave the shelter life and settle down with a loving family. She wants to hang up her adopt me vest, for a sweet Martha Stewart harness. Rock on, Tegan.
