Jacksonville’s 11th Annual Silent Night

We are celebrating the 11th year of our annual Silent Night foster program with Jacksonville’s Animal Care and Protective Services!

Silent Night is a foster program where community members are invited to visit JHS and ACPS from December 20 through December 24 to select a pet to bring home for the holidays. This gives our pets a much-needed break from the shelter at the merriest time of the year!

After Christmas, from December 26 to December 28, you can bring your Silent Night foster back to the shelter you fostered them from. You can tell us all about how your foster pet was in the home, share pictures, and give us valuable information for potential adopters.

If you happen to fall in love with your Silent Night foster, we would be more than happy to make your holiday hound or Christmas kitty an official member of your family. We will even waive the adoption fee thanks to generous grant from VCA Charities!

Celebrate Silent Night by lending a helping paw and taking home a shelter pet for the howl-idays!

Visit JHS at 8464 Beach Blvd from 12pm – 7pm on weekdays and 10am – 5pm on weekends

Visit ACPS at 2020 Forrest Street from 12pm – 7pm on weekdays and 10am – 6pm on weekends.
