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 Anita (Tailless)

  Anita is alluring, elegant and just peachy! She is a lover and an admirer. Anita cherishes attention and craves petting. She keeps physically active and mentally engaged by playing with toys that dangle and swing, like a cat wand! Anita savors cat treats and will nuzzle up to you for some scrumptious goodies. Her ideal home is with an individual, couple or family; Anita is a people kitty. She does not interact with other cats and prefers not to be in their company. Anita is expected to be okay with a cat-friendly dog after a proper introduction. Otherwise, she will be just fine as the only pet. Anita has a medium length coat of gray and buff with a dilute torbie pattern, also known as patched tabby or tortoiseshell tabby! As of April 2024, Anita is 5 months old. She does not have a tail. Anita came to Friends of Jackson County with a "degloved" very short tail (the skin was ripped away showing muscle and bone). Her treatment option was a small snippet of amputation.      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 $30-$110. You can help save a life by fostering a cat for FJCASP. If interested in fostering you can find an online foster application at If you would like to donate to help us help the foster parents with food, medications and preventatives you can paypal us at [email protected] or you can donate supplies at the LaundroMutt in Ocean Springs!
