Change a Pet’s Life Day

January 24th is National Change a Pet’s Life Day. Your first thought might be adoption – and that’s great! But those of you who already have a pet at home (or 2, or 3, or 4, or more) might be wondering, “How can I help?”

Here are just a few simple ways to change a pet’s life:

Donate – Your donations help provide for the lifesaving care that pets need, such as food, medicine, and a safe place to stay. Donations made to this special day are currently being MATCHED by a generous donor. That means if you give $25 it will be matched for $50 total!

Foster – Providing a temporary home will change the lives of so many homeless pets. JHS has several options, whether it’s just one day with a dog or a few weeks with kittens.

Send a Gift – Our Amazon and Chewy wishlists include items that we use every day at the shelter along with some extra-special tools that we need.

Volunteer – Looking to give your time and talents? Our volunteer team onboards new members every week and the animals would love to meet you.

Share – If you follow JHS on social media, help us spread the word by sharing our stories and posts with your friends and followers.

And of course… adopt! If you need a new furry family member, please consider one of our amazing dogs or cats. They all need a loving home.

National Change a Pet’s Life Day comes once a year, but at the Jacksonville Humane Society, we see acts of kindness from our community every day. Join our lifesaving team and change a life today!

Remember – donations made to “Change a Pet’s Life Day” will be matched and DOUBLE your impact to the animals! You can change two lives with just one gift.
