Friends of Jackson County Animal Shelter Pets

Who We Are:A group of volunteers in Jackson County, MS dedicated to the mission of saving animal’s lives at the Jackson County Animal Shelter. We are a 501c3 Non-profit organization incorporated in the state of Mississippi. Mission Statement:• To assist Jackson County Animal Shelter with funds, food, supplies, shelter improvements, fostering and volunteerism.• To assist Jackson County Animal Shelter in securing good, reliable adoptive families for animals through social networking, transport to other states and local adoption events. • To educate the public on the importance of spay and neuter laws, animal protection laws and pet owner responsibility. How You Can Help:We always need responsible foster families; we cannot pull animals from the local shelter unless we have safe, reliable foster homes for them to go to for training, medications, spay and neuter hold and quarantine for transports. We work in conjunction with local and out of state Rescue organizations to save as many animals as possible through this fostering, adoption and transport program.Financially, we need funds for supplies, vet care and medicines, shelter pull fees and subsidizing transports to other states. Future projects include possible upgrades to the shelter to help reduce the spread of disease, increase animal capacity and thereby reduce euthanasia rates. We are also working on how to implement and fund low cost spay and neuter programs, micro-chipping, an adoption sponsorship fund and other life saving ideas.

Meet Mork

  Mork craves security, affection and attention. He adores being petted and will crawl in your lap to be brushed. Mork is a super fan of Churu squeeze ups and will face his fears to enjoy one of these tasty treats. He enjoys hanging out on the Catio (enclosed patio for cats) where he loves to watch the birds. When Mork gets overwhelmed or tired, his favorite spot to rest and hide out is on a sunny windowsill behind curtains! Prior to arriving in rescue, Mork had little exposure to people and only knew an outdoorsy life. He was overwhelmed and incredibly afraid of everything, however, he is making amazing progress settling into indoor life and his sweet, affectionate and playful personality is emerging! Mork's ideal home is one that is calm with predictable routines to help him transition; and with a human companion that will continue to work with him. He is accepting and friendly towards other cats and is accustomed to being around a cat-friendly dog. Mork is a silver tiger tabby with gorgeous green eyes. He has a crooked tail due to an unknown reason. As of September 2023, Mork is 5 months old. *** Mork is temporarily under the weather. It is preferred that he continue treatment & become well before going to his new home; however, he is available to meet his potential adopter!*** Friends of Jackson County Animal Shelter Pets (FJCASP) is a foster-based rescue for dogs and cats. All pets are in a home environment cared for by a foster person who provides temporary care until the pet can be placed in a permanent home. Friends of Jackson County is an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. If interested in meeting this kitty, you can find an online adoption application at       adoption fees cover spay/neuter, vaccinations, wormers and preventatives and range from $85-$100.
