August Spokespet of the Month

Meet our August Spokespet of the Month: Lucy! Lucy was a runner-up in our second annual Jacksonville’s Cutest Pet Contest.

“Lucy was left in a box at Petco 5 years ago, starving and covered with fleas. They estimated she was 4 weeks old. A rescue group came in and checked her out medically and fed her. They brought her to an adoption event 3 weeks later where she chose me to be her forever home. Best trip to Petco ever!” – Lucy’s family
