ACPS SHELTER FULL: Critical Need for Adoptions & Fosters

ACPS SHELTER FULL: Critical Need for Adoptions & Fosters

At press time The Resident Community News staff learned that Jacksonville’s Animal Care & Protective Services shelter is completely full and in critical need of adopters and fosters. They have approximately 150 dogs available for immediate adoption, with more added daily. ACPS desperately needs the help of our caring community to adopt, foster, become a Weekend Warrior (weekend or short-term foster), or Adoption Ambassador who fosters and independently promotes a homeless pet until its forever home is found.

Please do not attempt to surrender any pet to ACPS without first attempting to re-home it by asking neighbors and friends, or post it free of charge on Try to find the owner of any lost cat or dog by checking for an identification tag or microchip, which can be done free at any veterinarian office. Post flyers, post on social media and speak to neighbors, because most lost pets live within one mile of where they are found, according to ACPS. Try to re-home the pet or become its foster if no owner can be found, to keep it out of the shelter.
