Jaclyn Payne

President & Director Of Operations

Jaclyn Payne is the Founder, President and Director of Operations for Lucky’s Cat House and as far back as 1990 she has been involved with rescue in some form. A military brat, Jaclyn, has traveled the country and for the last 20 years has lived in southern middle Tennessee with her son, Justyn. Together with her parents they own and operate one of the oldest country stores in Tennessee.

Jaclyn started rescuing animals as a child, by 14 years old she was awarded volunteer of the year by The Humane Society of North Texas. While fostering and volunteering with the Humane society of North Texas Jaclyn also volunteered her time at local veterinary clinics, learning as much as she could. At 16 years old Jaclyn was involved in her first heart breaking rescue, one that stayed with her for most of her life. Lucky, a 6 month old male tabby, and Lucky’s Cat House’s

namesake. Lucky helped Jaclyn understand we can’t do it all, but we can do something.

At 17 Years old Jaclyn started working with North Texas Wildlife Rehabilitations. With her mothers help they became licensed wildlife rehabilitators, with the highest survival rate of cotton tails, doves, mockingbirds, and pigeons in the area. In 2018 Jaclyn started working with a local southern middle Tennessee rescue group, Animal Rescue Assistance Team Tennessee, where she became the feline coordinator for the group. Rescuing more than one thousand cats in one year, she saw an urgent need for feline help in her area. Jaclyn and a group of friends and fellow cat lovers started Lucky’s Cat House.

Jaclyn has turned her home into the cat house, and houses and cares for all of Lucky’s cats. In addition to the Lucky cats Jaclyn and her son have 5 dogs; Dooby, JP, AmE, Lissie, and Heffer and 9 cats; Dee Dee, Wall-e, RayB, Dory, Eve, Luna, Willow, Opal, and Pearl. All are rescues from the last 13 years.
