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!”
– Rufus (with help from his family)
