Welcome to the Jacksonville Dog Café & The Jax Cat Shack!

Revolutionizing how people connect with adoptable dogs and cats!
Our concept is really pretty simple...free coffee and adoptable dogs and cats in a fun setting. We are a 501(c)3 Non Profit run ENTIRELY by volunteers and 100 % DONATION BASED . Our mission is to revolutionize the way people connect with adoptable dogs and cats who need homes. Every penny we raise goes towards finding great homes for the animals through our café setting, special events and weekly gatherings. The dogs and cats come to the café from local rescues and shelters and do not live at the café or belong to the café. We are simply the venue for them to meet potential adopters and be loved on by the community. Our Café offers visitors an intimate, comfortable and fun space for humans and dogs and cats to hang out with each other, away from overcrowded shelters, which can provoke fear and aggression in perfectly adoptable dogs and cats. People unable to have pets of their own are also able to spend quality time with furry friends without the commitment of adoption.
"A friend for now. A friend fur-ever."
We are not a traditional "café" ....
For us the word stands for:
Connect -- Adopt -- Fundraise -- Educate
This is an amazing interview with Russ, a disabled veteran that just adopted our beloved "Scruffy". This true adoption story sums up why we do what we do. Thank you for letting us share your story!
