July 2022 Adoption Specials

Have you been considering adopting a pet, but you’re just waiting for a sign? Well – here it is!

Your local shelters in Jacksonville, the Jacksonville Humane Society and Animal Care and Protective Services, are currently full of dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies who need new, loving homes.

Could that home be yours?

If you’re on the fence about adding a pet to your life, how about a little scientific proof?

Research has shown:

  • Companion animals, such as dogs and cats, can enhance your quality of life, bringing you a feeling of increased value, meaning, and worth.
  • Pets promote relaxation, help owners adhere to a daily schedule, and enhance your mobility and overall well-being.
  • Pet ownership is associated with improved quality of life through social support, reduced depression, and other psychosocial predictors of health.
  • Pet owners have been found to report higher life satisfaction than non-owners.

Need more proof that NOW is the best time to adopt? Here’s a list of our current specials* during July 2022:

  • July 16 & 17, Free Pet Adoptions at Local PetSmart Stores
  • July 22-24, Free Pet Adoptions at the Jacksonville Humane Society presented by Best Friends Animal Society
  • July 25-31, $25 Pet Adoptions at the Jacksonville Humane Society thanks to BISSELL Pet Foundation and Cathy Bissell.

And if you think we’re saving the best for last… you’re right! The very best part about adopting from your local shelters is that you are saving a life. By adopting, you give a homeless pet the second chance they deserve. Saving lives in our community would not be possible without you!

Ready to adopt? Mark your calendars, get ready, set, and GO!

Come adopt your new best friend at the Jacksonville Humane Society!
