JHS is seeking Storm Troopers to temporarily care for our dogs, cats, and kittens during Hurricane Dorian. Interested families can stop by the JHS Adoption Center between 10am and 5pm on Sunday, September 1, and between 12pm and 4pm on Monday, September 2. Please bring photo ID and enter through our main Adoption & Education Center entrance.

We are asking that families hold pets until at least Friday, September 6. Due to a high call volume, we ask that you message us on Facebook or just come in person. We’re located at 8464 Beach Blvd.

Storm Trooper foster families will be provided with pet food, leashes, and collars.

For additional details, visit jaxhumane.org/stormtroopers.

Jacksonville, we need your help! JHS has taken in over 500 kittens in the month of May alone and foster homes are needed to save these little lives. We provide all the supplies, you provide the love! If you’d like to take home a kitten (or several) to foster, please stop by 8464 Beach Blvd. – just look for the entrance labeled Pet Help Center.

No matter how much time you have to give – whether it’s a night or a couple months – you can make a difference.

If you cannot foster, please consider sending the kittens a gift from their online registry!

With kitten season nipping at our paws, JHS is in preparation mode and we need your help! We’re assembling kitten packs that are designed to fulfill every need of a kitten who comes to our shelter without Mama. These include items like milk replacement, bottles and rice socks to keep the babies warm.


We have an Amazon wishlist that has every item we need, including which items are most needed and why. With your kind donation we can get through kitten season together!

If you’re interested in being a potential kitten foster or if a kitten falls into your hands, JHS has a few great tips:

Last year, more than 11,000 kittens under the age of 5 months arrived at Jacksonville shelters. We can’t save them without your help. Thank you!
