December 2022 Update: At this time, we are experiencing a high volume of animals arriving at our shelter. This, along with the closure of our city’s municipal animal care division for animal intake, has severely limited our resources. JHS wants to help every pet and person who comes to us but we may not be able to provide an immediate intake of an animal. Please view these menu items to learn more about all the available options in our community. The sooner you reach out for help, the better we can assist you. Thank you for working with JHS to find the best solution for pets and for people.

Stray Animals Currently at JHS

All of the pets pictured here were found as strays and brought to JHS. If you have lost a pet, review the profiles below. If you believe one of these is your pet, bring the appropriate ID of the animal and proof of animal ownership to JHS as soon as possible.

Pets have a 6-day stray hold before being released for adoption at JHS. Pets may be pre-adopted while at JHS on their stray hold but will not leave the shelter until the 6-day stray hold period has ended. Some of the pets pictured on this page may have already been pre-adopted.

Some pets may be cared for in the finder’s home during the stray hold period, as noted in the pet’s profile. Those pets are not in the shelter and not available for adoption.

Names shown were assigned to animals upon arrival.
