JACKSONVILLE, Florida – Sunday, January 24 is National Pet Change Day, and the Jacksonville Humane Society (JHS) provided a unique adoption opportunity for community members.
On Sunday, January 24, JHS offered free adoptions in exchange for a bag of pet food for the JHS pet food bank.
The goal of this event was to help both pets and those in need by finding new homes for animals at JHS while providing pet food to pet owners in the community.
“This event is a wonderful way to give back to pets and those in need,” Denise Deisler, CEO of JHS, said ahead of the event. “We are very happy to see our community come forward and make a difference in the lives of so many people. “
Adoptions were available at the JHS Adoption and Education Center, located at 8464 Beach Blvd., from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, January 24.
All adopted animals from JHS are spayed / neutered, microchipped and up to date with their vaccines.
Donations were accepted in person at the time of adoption.
JHS prefers Purina brand pet foods, but any brand is acceptable. The most important need right now is cat food.
Donations can also be made online at jaxhumane.org/changeapetslife.
