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.
January Spokespet of the Month
Meet our January Spokespet of the Month: Rufus! Rufus was a runner-up in our third annual Jacksonville’s Cutest Pet Contest.
“I was adopted from a shelter in Chicago and then got to move around the country several times. When we moved to Florida my parents adopted my human brother and we became instant friends! I had a ‘ruff’ life when I was a young pup but I have had many years of fun and relaxation since then. I love to explore the yard and I take good care of my little mini-schnauzer sisters. I am getting older and wiser now but am as fun (and photogenic!) as ever. My human brother is very excited that I am entering this beauty contest!”
