We need your help:
Veterinary cost on spays and neuters have risen sharply. Taylor Jones Humane Society has continued to keep the cost down as little as possible to the public. As an example a $35 cost to the public for a cat neuter cost us $54 to $72. Please help by making a donation. Please click here to donate or learn more. Thanks

Found Pet Policy:
There has been questions on our policy when a cat or dog is found and brought here. Please read our Found pets policy.

For a recent update on our Spay Neuter program, see the new poster on The Events Page. Also read our History page.

Thank You to everyone who came to our 2017 Bark in the Park, it went very well this year See Events Page

We could really use a volunteer that could come in any where around noon to 2 pm to let the dogs out. If anyone is interested please contact Diane Whitaker at 333-8832. It doesn't have to be every day, just when you can.

We could also use help transporting animals to and from the vet. This isn't often, so if you live close and can help contact Diane Whitaker 333-8832

Dallas is another long time resident here. He is a good dog, but doesn't get along with some other dogs very well. He is better suited as a only pet for a family. He is protective of the people he is used of being with. There have been some puppies he has done well with, but none that's assertive. Someone please consider giving Dallas a good home. You can also contact Diane Whitaker 333-8832 or call the office if you want someone here to go in the yard with you and Dallas for introductions.
