We need more volunteers who would like to do what we do: walk the dogs at the shelter, help find homes, educate the public about our spay/neuter programs, get the cats to Petsmart, clean the cat cages at Petsmart. We need people who want to become proactive in the community as volunteers in our organization. We need people who are fearless about asking for monies for our adoption programs and city shelter needs and are not afraid to throw their selves amidst the eternal needs of homeless pets. If you would like to volunteer, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you'd like to be pet person just for a little while as we try to find homes for the homeless you can be a foster parent. Fostering a dog or cat is a wonderful way to teach children how to help those in need and how to be responsible for the life of another living being. Also, to those of you who have just one dog and you fear that they are lonely while you are at work all day, nothing keeps your beloved lonely one company like a thankful and willing foster dog. If you would like to help, please contact Dell (769.823.9768) for cats and Lyn (601.405.2437) for dogs.
All city shelter dogs and cats are eligible for a free spay/neuter through our fine program with Jackson Friends and various vets in town.
Some of our longtime participating vets are Dr. Troy Majure and his rotating staff of wonderful vets at AMC (Animal Medical Center) and one of our long-standing clinics donating their time and talent to Jackson Friends is North State Animal Hospital. Two of our newest are Oakdale Vet Clinic and Forest Hill Vet Clinic. Dr. Jonathan Mitchell (with Forest Hill) is a very positive guy with a fine vet clinic. Also , All Creatures Great and Small in Madison has continued to be most generous with their time and talents with our program for quite a while. Dr. Glenn with the Hinds Community College Vet Tech program which spays and neuters our pets during the academic year. The person to call for spay/neuter for pound pets is Greg Rothe at 601-955-7357. We thank these vets for everything they have done for these many years for this community and applaud their loyalty to this fine program. We also highly recommend them for your other pets, too.
