The Jacksonville Humane Society provides care, comfort and compassion to animals in need while engaging the hearts, hands and minds of our community to bring about an end to the killing of abandoned and orphaned shelter animals.
September Spokespet of the Month
Meet our September Spokespet of the Month: Poppy the Tripawd! Poppy was a runner-up in our second annual Jacksonville’s Cutest Pet Contest.
“As a kitten, Poppy’s leg was shattered and he had an amputation of that leg. After his recovery he was put up for adoption, and I immediately knew: Poppy belonged with us. Today, 7 years later, he still runs like the wind and he is totally as mobile and active as a ‘normal’ cat. Not a day goes by that Poppy doesn’t make us smile.” – Poppy’s family
