Pets & Animals Get New Home

Jackson County recognized the need of a new animal shelter (humane society) for the community.  They had outgrown their old smaller building.  Americon was selected for the project, and in late 2019, the project commenced.

In July of 2020, the pets moved in with their caretakers.  This facility has over 20 individual kennels, with both bright and dim lighting options, individual exterior attached space for each kennel, office space, exam rooms, welcoming (meet & greet) rooms and an outdoor run space. It is located just outside of Black River Falls, WI.

To adopt a pet, please contact the Jackson County Animal Shelter, by visiting the Jackson County Animal Shelter Website.
