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!

FOSTER FOUND! Happy weekend everyone!

Tootise needs a foster this weekend, Saturday-Tuesday! Could you give her a temporary home?! She needs a home without cats and dogs! She likes other dogs but can be choosy. She crates well and loves long walks!

Call us at 307.739.1881 if you can help out!Tootsie
1 year old female Rottweiler/Shepherd mix
Tootsie arrived at the AAC on 1/18/19 from Riverton. She is a total sweetheart who is eager to please. She plays well with other dogs although she can be a bit rough with dogs that are smaller than her. She shouldnt live with cats because they're too fun to chase. Tootsie is great with kids of all ages and loves to cuddle her people. She will make a great adventure dog!

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.

Did you know that all the AAC dogs are fostered out EVERY night?? Did you know that YOU can sign up to have a doggy sleepover with one of our adoptable dogs? Many of our regular fosters will be out of town for Spring Break the next two weeks so we are looking for fosters! You can sign up for one night, two nights or every night, whatever works for you! We will send you with a dog that fits into your home and gets along with all members of your family. We provide everything you need to care for the dog, you provide the love! If you are interested in helping foster an AAC dog please fill out a Foster Application here: animaladoptioncenter.org/get-involved/foster/
