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
