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

Mr. Sparkles is a handsome gentleman who enjoys cheek scratches and playing with bird toys. This Siamese kitty mix is talkative and outgoing with people, and loves treats and dinnertime. Sparkles was found outside as a stray and brought to the shelter, so we do not know much about his past life. So far he is confident and friendly, and seems to get along with some other cats.
