Item of the Month
Josephine County Animal Shelter, with the support of Shelter Friends and the citizens of Josephine County, have turned our shelter into a model for others’ to follow. In the past five years, adoptions, transfers, and owner redemptions have increased and euthanasia has dropped. Josephine County no longer has to euthanize animals to make space for new animals entering the shelter! Once an animal is deemed adoptable, they stay at the shelter or in a foster home until they are adopted or transferred to one of our many partners.
How’d we spend your money last year?
One of the programs that has contributed to the reduction of euthanasia in dogs is the Heartworm Heroes Program. This joint effort between the shelter and Shelter Friends is now treating Heartworm positive dogs and getting them ready for adoption. You can read about this life-saving program and how you can help here: Heartworm Heroes Program

What We Do
PetCo, Grange Co-op, PetSmart in Medford, Community Gatherings, local businesses and retirement homes.
Most of our funds cover medical and foster expenses for shelter animals. Veterinary bills above what the shelter can pay, emergency veterinary care, dental services and all foster care expenses.
Whether recovering from a medical procedure, illness or just in need of time away from the shelter, our foster program offers respite for an animal in need of a ‘break’ from Shelter life.
Please join us in helping make a difference for those animals who need us the most. With your help, we can make our beautiful county a place where all animals can have the home they deserve.
