the “death rate” at the Jasper County Animal Control
Shelter and that one good

TWG found that there are two good
souls attempting to help
the animals at the Shelter. Pictures and descriptions of the pets
available at the Jasper Shelter
are being posted on Hoobly, Petfinder, and

We have pictures of 3 dogs that have
found GREAT homes! A Beagle, German
Shepherd, and a
Cocker Spaniel. You can
see these are beautiful dogs—not some mangy mutt. These dogs had to be
someone’s pet and were
either lost or turned out.
We have pictures of two of the many dogs
that have been euthanized. These dogs
were put down to make
room for more coming into the shelter that will likely

Shepherd mix was so friendly and outgoing.

for a family with kids.
If you are a responsible owner, and are
considering a new pet, please visit our local animal shelter. The staff
is friendly, knowledgeable, and
know the personalities of the dogs and cats, and can tell you
what they know
about them. Plus, the feeling
you get knowing that you had a hand in saving a life, is
and you will be well rewarded with an ever grateful pet!
Jasper County Animal Control Shelter is open Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday
