ANIMAL SHELTERS ENCOURAGE RESIDENTS TO GIVE THE GIFT OF A TEMPORARY HOME FOR THE HOLIDAY

Animal Care and Protective Services (ACPS) and the Jacksonville Humane Society (JHS) are inviting residents to participate in the Silent Night program by fostering a shelter pet through the holiday. Animal lovers can visit the two shelters now through Dec. 24 to be matched with and pick up a furry friend. Pets can be returned on Saturday, Dec. 26, or later for those who want to continue the sleepover fun. While food and other pet care supplies will be provided, fosters are asked to bring a new or gently used leash, collar and carrier if possible. Participants are encouraged to share their “paws-itive” experiences on social media using the hashtag #SilentNightJax. 

ACPS is located at 2020 Forest St. and open Tuesday to Friday from noon - 7 p.m., and Saturday to Sunday from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. (holiday hours: 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Christmas Eve, closed Christmas Day). The JHS facility, located at 8464 Beach Blvd., is open from noon - 7 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. on weekends (closed Christmas Day). Visit coj.net/Pets or JaxHumane.org for more information. For questions, email JaxPets@coj.net.
