Mission

Our Mission

The Animal Adoption Center (AAC) is dedicated to saving the lives of homeless animals through rescue, adoption, education and spay/neuter.

About Us

Founded in 2004, the AAC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in downtown Jackson Hole, just steps from the historic Town Square. Our highly visible location promotes excellent community interaction with our animals and programs. Visitors are greeted by our happy, tail-wagging dogs and friendly purring cats.  Since its inception, the AAC has rescued thousands of animals and placed them in loving forever homes. We strive to shatter the many negative stereotypes about abandoned animals. By encouraging people to adopt instead of buying a pet, and educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering, we can put an end to the unnecessary killing of adoptable animals and realize a future where there are no more homeless pets.

Rescue, Adoption & Education

The AAC rescues animals from kill shelters, abandonment, hoarding cases, overcrowded regional shelters, and cases of neglect.  We partner with regional shelters and rescues to save animals. Many regional shelters are stressed at max capacity, therefore the AAC does not accept owner surrenders.  We provide every animal with necessary veterinary care, spay or neuter them, and socialize them with other animals and people. The AAC provides a warm, cheerful, and calming environment where our animals can relax and play while we work to find them their forever homes. If you are looking to adopt a dog or a cat we have a wide variety of animals that are seeking new loving homes. 

Spay/Neuter Wyoming Program

Millions of adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized in America each year due to overcrowding in shelters. In 2009, the AAC began to attack the root of the pet overpopulation problem by launching our Spay/Neuter Wyoming Program; a low-cost, mobile, spay and neuter effort spearheaded by AAC board member Dr. Heather Carleton. Our mobile spay/neuter program travels across Wyoming, holding low-cost clinics that make pet sterilization services available to those who would otherwise not be able to afford to fix their animals.  Since 2009, our spay/neuter program has fixed more than 10,000 animals. With our newly created Voucher Program, Wyoming residents can also apply for a low-cost spay/neuter voucher from participating veterinarians across the state. No more waiting for us to come to you!

Earl, 12 years old, male, Spaniel Mix
Earl traveled from Idaho Falls after he was dumped in the shelter yard. We are addressing his medical needs and will be getting him whatever is best. Right now he loves to curl up on a bed and nap all day. He has done well with every dog and cat he has been introduced to and just needs a place to live out the rest of his years. Please be patient while we figure out what he needs!

Please note, Animal Adoption Center cannot guarantee the breed, composition or ages of our dogs as we usually have no history prior to them entering the rescue. We make every effort to ensure the dogs are healthy.

Please know that our intention is to insure long lasting committed homes for the animals at the AAC. If we feel that an animal and a potential owner are not a good fit we reserve the right to refuse adoption.
