CANCELLED: Toast to the Animals

In light of the damage Hurricane Irma has brought to Jacksonville and Florida, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Toast to the Animals this year.  We have been and expect to continue responding to help our fellow shelters from around Florida who have been effected by the storm.

Each year this event helps us to raise more than $150,000, which enables us to provide medical care to animals in need. With Irma wreaking havoc on our state, this fund is even more important. For those who pre-ordered tickets, we ask you to consider your ticket purchase to be a donation to JHS. Of course, we will honor refund requests, but all the funds not refunded will go to ensure that every animal will receive the help they need to have a second chance at life and love. In recognition of your generosity, you will be recognized at and invited to participate in our grand opening event in November. Thank you for your consideration and if you prefer we refund your gift, please email

If you would like to donate to JHS, please go to and select “Hurricane Relief”. 

Raffle tickets will still be honored and can still be purchased! Go to and select the raffle option.
