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!

Animal Adoption Center

We currently have a high demand for dog adoptions and we are forming lines for each animal based on who has submitted their application and when. If you have not submitted an application yet, I would recommend doing so ASAP. Once we have received your application we will put your name in the dog’s line and will reach out if your name comes up to meet and/or foster the dog. Please visit our website or Facebook to view the dogs in our program.

In the meantime, your application would be good for all dogs moving forward. If one becomes available please email us at adopt@animaladoptioncenter.org indicating that you are interested and would like to be put in line. We are requiring applications to be put in the adoption line. Our team will also keep you in mind for future dogs in our program and will reach out if we think one will be a good fit. Thank you for being patient during these times and please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Fostering is required before adoption. After adoption is complete the adopter enters a two week trial period. Dog adoption fee is $225. This fee covers spay/neuter, microchip and vaccinations up to date.

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.

The first step to setting up a meet and greet is completing our online application. Please visit our website or Facebook to check out all of our adoptable cats! Once we receive your application we can move forward with scheduling a meet and greet. Your application will be valid for all cats moving forward.

For the safety of our staff, animals and community, there is a two person limit for in-peron meet and greets. We require all individuals to wear a mask and sanitize before entering the AAC. We can also accommodate a virtual meet and greet if requested.
