The Jacksonville Humane Society (JHS) is a 501c3 non-profit, no-kill animal shelter and does not euthanize healthy or treatable companion animals in our care. We work in partnership with our city’s municipal animal control division, Animal Care and Protective Services, to maintain a save rate of 90% or higher for our entire community, making Jacksonville a no-kill city. JHS is also actively involved in the movement to make Florida a no-kill state through our new Florida Leaders in Lifesaving initiative.
To learn more about the definition of no-kill and how a save rate is calculated for shelters and communities nationwide, please visit Best Friends Animal Society’s website.
The Jacksonville Humane Society participates in Shelter Animals Count, a national database that tracks shelter statistics. You can use the interactive displays below to view JHS data based on year and species. This data is updated on the 15th of each month by Shelter Animals Count.
