About Us

Our amazing team of employees and volunteers are committed to  helping our animals find forever homes. Our veterinarian has dedicated her life to animal rescue. We take our convictions and turn them into action to help better our community and provide our animals with the best. 

Our History



Judy's Forgotten Jewells is a licensed Non-Profit No Kill Animal Rescue Group. It was founded by our veterinarian Patricia L. Smith DVM in 2009 in honor of her mother's childhood dog "Judy Dog" and Jewell Animal Hospital. Dr. Smith believes that ALL animals deserve quality pet care and a caring home. The rescue is supported by volunteers, the Jewell Animal Hospital staff, and pet passionate people in our community who donate money and supplies. The rescue does not receive any funding from large corporation or private foundations.  We do charge an adoption fee which helps cover only a fraction of what it costs to spay/neuter, vaccinate, implant and activate a microchip, feed our animals and also provide any medical treatment prior to adoption.

Animals Are Our Mission


 Judy's Forgotten Jewells does not specialize in any one type or breed of dog or cat. Our passion is pet adoption. This includes the elderly, sick, pregnant, or soon to be euthanized animals are the ones we provide a sanctuary for. Animals deemed "unadoptable" due to a medical or behavior issue by other institutions find hope with our animal shelter. The animals with us have no time limit on how long they can stay. They are part of our family until they find their next home. The ultimate goal is to provide quality medical and emotional care before finding a loving and permanent home; then, space can open up for other animals to be rescued and given the same opportunity for a second chance. Judy's Forgotten Jewells is about finding the animals that are the diamonds in the rough and polishing them up with love and care until the perfect match is found with a new family. We are fully supported by Jewell Animal Hospital and their veterinarian Dr. Patricia Smith, DVM.
