JEFFERSON COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY HAS SOME VERY EXCITING NEWS TO SHARE WITH ANIMAL LOVERS!

For the past several years – Jefferson County Humane Society (located in Wintersville, Ohio) has worked very hard to accommodate the vast need for low-cost veterinarian services for pet owners in and around the Ohio Valley area.

JCHS has grown to offer affordable spay & neuter options, dental care services and weekly wellness clinics – all with shelter and public pets in mind.
( view a list of the medical services currently offered at JCHS by visiting our low-cost pet care section of this website )

The JCHS team of medical professionals have done a wonderful job so far, but it’s been realized that it is no longer feasible for them to handle the demands they’re faced with each day – operating out of one very small room located in the back of the Jefferson County Animal Shelter.

It’s no secret that accessible low-cost medical options are a void that needs filled for Ohio Valley pet owners – and JCHS decided to take their efforts to the next level!

JCHS recently acquired a new building located at 81 Talbott Drive in Wintersville, Ohio – and have set fourth to expand the low-cost veterinary services they already offer.

The new facility is going to allow the JCHS medical team to focus solely on the medical needs of both shelter & public pets in one designated area – so that the JCHS shelter team members can carry on with their goals of caring for & finding furr’ever homes for the countless stray, abused, neglected, and unwanted animals of Jefferson County, Ohio.

PLEASE CONSIDER PARTNERING WITH JCHS!

Jefferson County Humane Society is asking for your support in making our community a better place – for both people and their pets.
Major renovations have taken place at the new medical building, and additional medical equipment & other costly elements (to improve both the new facility and medical services that are offered) are on the wish list.

YOUR DONATION WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Jefferson County Humane Society relies on monetary contributions since the organization does not receive funding from national organizations or government tax dollars to run any programs that they currently offer.
By making a donation to the capital campaign, you will be contributing to the care and well-being of shelter and local animals for many years to come.

Please take a minute to look at the giving options provided and consider partnering with Jefferson County Humane Society to provide the programs that the Ohio Valley area truly deserves.

May 2017 | Volunteer of the Month : Jayce Hicks

I’d like to introduce our volunteer of the month, the one, the only, Jayce Hicks. This sweet, caring, affectionate, dependable, beautiful girl is at the shelter weekly with her dear friend, Di, which we nicknamed them the “dynamic duo” because there is no task that they can’t handle. Jayce always has a smile on her face, even after deep cleaning the cat rooms. Once she finishes a task, she finds a staff and asks if they need help! She is AMAZING! On holidays, when the shelter is closed to the public, the “dynamic duo” come in to take care of all the felines, cleaning, feeding, spending time with each one and making sure all doggies are happy and healthy, by showering them with affection. If you see Jayce around, let her know how important she is to our community.

Meet our Volunteer of the Month for January 2017, Cherry Lee. Ever see a beautiful picture of one of our shelter animals? That’s the work of this incredibly talented photographer who works behind the scenes capturing the perfect shots and helping us show to the public how beautiful our animals are. Who knows how many animals have been adopted as a direct result of her time and talent ! She’s also one of our favorite “foster failures”.
