COVID-19 Operation Plan


Hours & Adoption Process:

The AAC will be open by appointment only Tuesday through Friday.  We will proceed with a scheduled meet and greet style adoption process with the option of doing them virtually.  This will help maintain social distancing while allowing potential adopters to connect with the amazing animals in our program. We understand that there is truly nothing more comforting than having a companion animal in times of hardship.

If you are intersered in adopting one of our pets please complete a dog or cat application on our website.  If you already have one on file, please reach out to schedule a time to meet. These meet and greets will be done with proper social distancing in accordance with CDC recommendations.  Our team will also be asking potential adopters a variety of health and travel related questions. These responses will be kept confidential and only available to the AAC staff. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and greatly appreciate your understanding.

How You Can Help:

For our adoptable dogs, we will be shifting from our nightly foster program to long-term fostering.  We are looking for individuals and families interested in inviting a homeless dog into their home for a week or longer.  We will be sure to send you home with anything that you might need! To get involved, please complete our foster application or email us if you are already in our system.  All of our cats will reside in Kitty City.  If you live outside of the Jackson area, we are confident your local shelters would love help getting their animals into foster care as well.
