JACKSON COUNTY (KWWL) -

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office is warning people about a telephone scam claiming to take donations for the Jackson County Humane Society.

According to reports to the Sheriff's Office, the phone calls are coming from a toll free number with the same last four digits as the the Humane Society.

The caller claims to need donations in order to keep the organization from closing.

However, the President of the Humane Society confirms the organization is not conducting a fund raising campaign at this time and the shelter is not in danger of closing.
