Did you know? Generosity Breeds Joy Day is an official holiday in Jacksonville commemorating the grand opening of the new JHS Adoption, Education, and Pet Help Center on November 9, 2017. Join us as we celebrate our 4-year anniversary with a day of giving and help us reach our fundraising goal of $25,000 for the JHS Medical Fund!

We're inviting the public to be Kenneled for a Cause. What does this mean?

- Participants will be placed inside a large dog kennel, large dog suite, cat group room, or our small dog and puppy room for a 90-minute shift. All participants will begin their shift with a cone of shame, a bottle of water, and no chair to sit on.

- Participants must create a Facebook fundraiser for JHS. We suggest setting a goal of $1,500, but there is no minimum fundraising requirement. During your 90-minute shift, you can encourage your friends, family, neighbors, acquaintances, etc., to donate to help you reach your goal!

- You can earn rewards by hitting fundraising milestones:

Raise $100 = Remove your cone of shame

Raise $200 = Receive a treat for your pet

Raise $300 = Receive a treat for yourself

Raise $400 = Receive a chair to sit on

Raise $500 = Receive an enrichment item or activity for your pet

Raise $600 = Receive a 15-minute walk with your dog or a break outside

Raise $700 = Receive a book to read to your pet

Raise $800 = Receive an enrichment item or activity for your pet

Raise $900 = Choose another participant to lose their chair for 30 minutes

Raise $1,000 = Receive a coupon for 10% off any purchase in our retail store

Raise $1,250 = Receive a 15-minute walk with your dog or a break outside

Raise $1,500 = You did it! You hit your fundraising goal and will be released from your kennel. (You may also choose to stay in your kennel for the remainder of your 90-minute shift.)

All participants must wear face masks or coverings at all times.

Participants must be 18 years of age or older. Children 12 years of age and up may participate with an adult, but due to space limitations, only 1 child may participate with 1 adult.

Upon registering, participants will receive additional details and Facebook fundraising instructions via email.
