Many of you know about the search for land on which to build an animal shelter and our efforts in securing a long-term lease with the County. We are happy to announce that the Humane Society of Jackson County will be on the agenda for the next Board of Commissioner’s meeting on June 11th. If you are interested in helping to make this shelter a reality, please join the HSJC Board of Directors, Shelter Committee, and HSJC supporters at this very important meeting. If you have a HSJC shirt, please wear it. Also, an HSJC representative will be waiting outside with RAISE THE WOOF stickers. Below is the agenda item that the Commissioners will be voting on. Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for your support!
