Animal Shelter

About the Shelter

The Jackson-Teton County Animal Shelter provides humane care to, and finds homes for, lost and abandoned companion animals. The Shelter is available to educate the public on responsible animal ownership and serves the community by educating and enforcing animal regulations, including licensing requirements.

Annually we will have 200 dogs pass through the Shelter; about 75% of them are reclaimed by their owners, and we are proud of the fact that nearly all of the rest find new homes. Nearly 90% of the 110 plus cats that come through the Shelter also find new homes; the majority of the rest get reunited with their owners.

Services We Provide:
  • Pet Licensing
  • Equipment Rentals (livetraps, crates, etc.)
  • Pet Adoption
  • Lost & Found Pet Services
  • Humane Housing for lost, abandoned, &/or unwanted animals
  • Education, including group tours and community awareness events

Handsome only begins to describe this boy! Bogart “Bo” was originally thought to be a feral cat. He was often seen roaming a local neighborhood. Concerned for Bo’s welfare, neighbors trapped him and brought him to the shelter. Boy, did he give us a run for our money…at first. Thinking he was just scared, we started working on socializing Bo. One day, we just reached in (a little foolishly 😊) and started petting him. Well, Bo just melted with the pets and scratches. He even rolled over for tummy rubs! Bo is now a love bug! ❤
