Kitten Shower 2022

Not only are we getting spring showers, it’s also raining kittens!

Friends of the Animal Shelter foster families currently have 75 kittens in their care, and more are coming in everyday!
Please help us support our little furry darlings by donating to our annual Orphaned Kittens Shower. We have several rather expensive items on our shopping list, including another incubator ($1,200), kitten replacement formula ($300 for a 20 lb. tub of powder), warming discs, and more!
And if you’d like to become a kitten foster family, visit We can train you to bottle feed kittens, or you can foster kitties eating from bowls, while they wait for their spay/neuter appointments.

Our vision is for all adoptable animals at the Jackson Country Animal Shelter to find a loving home. Our mission is to recruit and train volunteers who will save lives by increasing pet adoptions at the Jackson Country Animal Shelter, improve the quality of life for the Shelter’s animals, promote spay and neuter, and facilitate outreach and educational activities about the humane treatment of companion animals throughout Jackson County. Our values are: Service, Compassion and Generosity.
