Welcome to Jax Animals!

Founded in 2006, the mission of Jax Animals is to be a complete resource and information center for topics relating to pets and animals in Jacksonville and North Florida with an emphasis on lost, found, abused, neglected, stray, and homeless animals.

Animal shelters, humane societies, and animal rescue groups in Jacksonville and surrounding counties are welcome to submit their information to be included in our comprehensive Rescues and Shelters lists.

Jax Animals includes lost, found, stray, and abandoned pet information as well as animal care and other related information. Lost Found Pets Jacksonville and North Florida is the official Jax Animals Facebook Page. Through the power of social media, our Facebook Page reunites lost and found pets with their homes and families. Everyone is invited and encouraged to post lost and found pets.

Jax Animals is a 100% volunteer effort and will grow as funds and resources permit. Our wish list of projects includes expanded lost / found / adoptable pet listings for all shelters, rescues, and the public in North Florida and a better and faster search and match application to reunite lost and found pets.

Your comments, questions, and suggestions are always welcome: Contact Us

Hot Weather Alert

With the hot weather in the area, please do not allow pets to stay in cars. Leaving a window partially opened in a parked car does nothing to help the pet. All it takes is a short few minutes to injure or kill your pet inside a parked car. If possible, keep pets inside and cool. Make sure water bowls are full. If your pet has been outside and you think the pet may be suffering from heat exhaustion, get the pet to a vet immediately. Do not wait. Symptoms of heat exhaustion may include one or more of the following:

Rapid breathing or panting
Dizziness or Staggering
Weakness
Vomiting
Bright red tongue
Red or pale gum color
Thick saliva
Lethargy
Restlessness
Diarrhea
Confusion
Shock
Coma


Killer and Animal Abuser On The Loose
Strikes in King Bird Drive Area
in Callahan

Shared from Karen O'Connor -> "This is my friends dog Marley. She's been missing since Sunday in the area of King Bird Drive, Callahan. It's a small subdivision off of 301. Sadly last night they found her shot dead and thrown in a ditch. My friends are completely mortified because she was such a sweet girl and wouldn't hurt anyone. I don't know all the details, but I wanted to post this in their behalf. Please keep your eyes and ears open because people are luring dogs out of fenced yards and then shooting them for kicks."


Marley

This is criminal and if anyone knows anything about who did this, please report it to the police. This killer is on the loose and needs to be caught and locked up to protect the public. Cowards who do this have been known to assault and kill people as well as prey on and abuse children. The account that the dog was thrown in a ditch after being shot indicates further severe mental issues for this individual.

Warning! Petnappers Are Active in the Area

There have been several reports of dogs being stolen in the area recently. The latest was January 28, 2015, in Arlington. The dognappers in this report are described as a white female and black male in a small silver or grey automobile. Another report mentioned the white female and black male but a different vehicle.

They are stealing dogs from fenced yards and patios and enclosed porches. Please keep your pets safe and report suspicious activity to the police. If you see someone unknown driving slowly on your street or parked in your neighborhood, get the license tag number and take a photo of the car if it is safe to do so. These people will drive by and look for an opportunity to steal your pet.

If you have had a pet stolen, report it to the police and check online sites like Craigslist for someone trying to sell you stolen pet. Also be sure and post it to our Facebook page Lost Found Pets Jacksonville and North Florida so everyone can be on the lookout for the pet...

The Jax Animals pages to view animals at area shelters now work with most mobile devices including phones and tablets using Apple iOS, Android, and Windows. These pages offer easy one-click or one-touch viewing of lost, stray, or adoptable pets at area shelters. Instead of having to wade through page after page after page of dogs or cats, each category has all listings on one scrollable page all in one place. Searching by Breed or Brought-to-Shelter Date is quick and easy.

Rosie Is Still Missing
Last Seen Southside Area

Rosie is still missing and still being searched for. We believe she is still out there, probably on the Southside of Jacksonville. If you have seen a dog that may be Rosie, please contact us. It is possible that someone found her, took her in, and does not realize she is being searched for. She is a Brussels Griffon/Bassett Hound Mix who got loose from her harness at Pet Supermarket on University Blvd on Friday and then was hit by a car. Scared, she ran south on St. Augustine Road toward Dupont Ave. She was last sighted further south around the San Jose Catholic Church and School at Toledo Road and St. Augustine Road. See the map below for details. The owners are offering a reward. If you have any information on Rosie, contact the owners at (904) 234-1099 and (904) 535-1262.

Increase in Stray Dogs Being Dumped by Owners

There seems to be an increase recently in the number of stray dogs wandering the streets. Many of these were dumped by owners. There is no reason why an owner should dump an animal! They are hungry and thirsty and often wander into traffic. Many are hit by cars and suffer an agonizing death. If you no longer want your pet, check the Area Animal Shelters and Humane Societies page and the Area Animal Rescue Groups page.


Adoptable Cats and Dogs Slideshow

Jax Animals has a convenient new way to view cats and dogs that are available for adoption at Jacksonville Animal Care and Protective Services. Our new Slideshow View shows one dog or cat at a time and with the click of a mouse on the photo you can get additional information about the animal. The original Grid View is still available.You can browse through the animals at your own pace and find your new friend who is waiting for a chance at a loving home:
