Founded in 2004, the AAC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in downtown Jackson Hole, just steps from the historic Town Square. Our highly visible location promotes excellent community interaction with our animals and programs. Visitors are greeted by our happy, tail-wagging dogs and friendly purring cats. Since its inception, the AAC has rescued thousands of animals and placed them in loving forever homes. We strive to shatter the many negative stereotypes about abandoned animals. By encouraging people to adopt instead of buying a pet, and educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering, we can put an end to the unnecessary killing of adoptable animals and realize a future where there are no more homeless pets.
Step 1: Search our adoptable animals. Browse our animals online or visit the AAC to meet them in person. Step 2: Fill out an application. Step 3: Adoption Requirements: Our dog adoption fee is $175 and the cat adoption fee is $80. Potential adopters are required to foster for at least one night. Once your application is reviewed and approved we honor a two-week trial period to make sure your new pet fits in well with your family and lifestyle. Adoption fees will be deposited after the two week trial period. If during the trial period you find that the animal is not a suitable match the adoption fee will be refunded. Any animal adopted from the AAC is always welcomed back if for any reason you can no longer care for him or her at any point in their life. Adopters must be at least 24 years old to adopt a cat or dog. Adopters who rent their home must have landlord approval in order to adopt. We welcome out of area adopters, however we require prospective adopters to visit our facility and spend at least one night with the animal. Step 4: Congratulations! You are the new mom or dad to a fur-baby!
