Filling out an application is in no way a guarantee that you will be able to adopt that animal. We take more than one application on each pet and do our best to choose the most suitable situation for each individual animal's needs. If we deny any application, we are not implying that you would be a bad pet owner, only that your situation isn't right for that animal's needs. If we have more than one suitable application, we go with the first one filled out. Veterinary history on previously owned animals has a bearing on our final decision. Regular vaccinations are not only important for the health of your pet and family, some are required by law. If you rent, your landlord's permission is required. Our staff will verify this. Because you are required to sign a legal contract, you must be at least 18 years of age to adopt a pet. We require that all dogs adopted be vaccinated against rabies. We require that all animals leaving our building be on a leash or in a secure pet carrier. It is our policy that all dogs and cats adopted be spayed or neutered by the date specified on your contract, if not previously altered. We require that ALL State or local ordinances regarding licensing be obeyed. (Cat licensing is required in certain areas.) Animals cannot be adopted as gifts unless all adult members of the receiving household approve. Our staff will verify this. Families with children under the age of 6 must spend time here with the pet to see how they interact with each other. If your situation changes and you can no longer keep your pet, you are required to return the animal to the Jackson County Humane Society, Inc.

From time to time we will receive grants that enable us to assist the community with a portion of the cost of spay or neutering your pets. Thanks to PAWS of Jackson Hole and Dr. Heather Carlton, Animal Adoption Center in Jackson for their grants programs.General Manager – Anna was born in Athens, Greece. Anna grew up in Lititz, Pennsylvania and after graduating from Warwick High School, Anna took a few years off and headed west to Jackson Hole, where she fell in love with the mountains. She then returned to Pennsylvania to attend classes at the Lancaster County Career and Technology Center, which awarded her a Veterinary Assistant certificate in 2008. Anna and her husband Dustin adopted their first rescue, Rio after moving back to Jackson in 2012. Dustin and Anna adopted two other dogs from the AAC. Anna’s hobbies include attempting to snowboard in the winter and hiking all year round. Anna is very excited to be with the AAC and looks forward to sharing and educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering and adopting rescue animals!Board Chair – Stefan has his own law practice in Jackson where he focuses on transactional work, namely real estate/land use planning and corporate work. On the AAC Board, Stefan concentrates his efforts on financial reporting, corporate governance and operations. Stefan is also the Chairman of the Teton County Planning Commission and Board Chair of a local OHV group working to increase access to public lands. Stefan first came to the AAC when he adopted The Dingo, a now 13 years young heeler mix. Stefan chaired the AAC Board from 2007 to 2013 and after a year absence, he could not stay away. Stefan is fond of quoting his grandmother who says “a house without a dog is like a day without sunshine”. Without the AAC, The Dingo would have been destroyed and for the AAC’s efforts in animal rescue, Stefan is eternally grateful.Board Member – Jeff and his family have been involved in animal rescue, fostering, and adoption for the past 20 years. They have 4 horses; Capone, Earnest Money, Corona and Trouble; 6 cats who ignored repeated requests to provide their names for this bio; a Blue Tick Hound named Sammy and a heeler mix named Margarita. Kegger the pig is the most recent addition to the family – yes, he is housetrained. Jeff is a 4-H leader, volunteers as a member of the Fair Board, and is a member of the Jackson Police Department’s Citizens Mounted Unit. He is dedicated to the AAC’s mission of finding forever homes for our furry friends while reducing pet overpopulation through spay/neuter. He loves being part of the no-kill movement.
