The Stone County SPCA operates the Jeanne H. Miller Animal Shelter for the homeless cats and dogs in Stone County.

Getting Involved

Adopting a Pet

Make your new best friend a rescue pet, they are the best breed! Cats and dogs of various ages and sizes are available through the Stone County SPCA. Come to our shelter to meet our pets.

Making a Donation

Donations are needed and greatly appreciated. It takes no small amount of money to maintain a well-run animal shelter. Shelter expenses include veterinary care, cleaning supplies, insurance, utilities, pet food, pet supplies, office supplies, transportation, building maintenance, and payroll. The Stone County SPCA gets no public funding. We depend on donations from individuals, businesses, and foundations.

Volunteer

The Stone County SPCA is always in need of dependable volunteers to spend time with the animals, help at adoption events, and foster pets. It’s difficult for employees to give shelter pets the individual attention they need. Volunteers are encouraged to walk the dogs and play with the cats. Volunteers are also needed to help out at adoption events at PetSmart and Petco. Fostering a pet is another great way to help. Fostering gives a pet the attention it needs as it waits to get a permanent home. It also opens up shelter space for other animals in need. Fosters are especially needed for kittens and puppies, and senior pets.
