Image result for safe animal shelter logoThis year's beneficiary of Jacksonville Whiskey Affair is Safe Animal Shelter. The shelter was extremely effected by Hurricane Irma, resulting in all animals being moved to other facilities such as the Jacksonville Humane Society or into foster homes. Due to damage, the shelter is currently closed and working to fix the damage and return to their duty of saving animals. Every helping hand counts!

Safe Animal Shelter will be doing a raffle and a donation drive. Guests are encouraged to bring an item from the shelter's Amazon Wishlist in support.

Safe Animal Shelter is a 501 (c)(3) organization which receives no government funding. All services we provide the community are funded by individual and business donations, grants from charitable foundations, pet adoption fees, and fund-raising activities held throughout each year.

We measure our success by maximizing the number of loving families who adopt pets from us. Each pet we adopt to a forever family opens up space to save another homeless cat or dog. We encourage you to consider us your “Go To” Our Adoption Center when looking for your next family pet.
