National “Change a Pet’s Life Day” is Wednesday, January 24, and the Jacksonville Humane Society (JHS) is seeking support from the community!
JHS is asking the public to consider donating to help change the lives of pets in need – including dogs like Miss Piggy, who was found on an abandoned property on Jacksonville's westside with a male dog and two puppies. While the property was deserted, this little canine family stayed together, and a kind citizen found the family and brought them to JHS for care. Thanks to our supportive community, Miss Piggy along with dad Kermit and puppies Fozzie and Rowlf received life saving vaccines, nutritious food, warm baths and lots of snuggles. Miss Piggy and her puppies were fostered by a compassionate JHS volunteer, and the entire family found new, loving homes in no time.
The story of Miss Piggy and her family encompasses all the ways folks can Change a Pet’s Life. Adopting, fostering, donating, and volunteering are all ways you can make a lifesaving difference in a homeless pet’s life.
Donations can be made online at jaxhumane.org/donate, on social media @jaxhumane, or by calling 904.725.8766.
Adoptions are available at the JHS Adoption and Education Center, located at 8464 Beach Blvd., on Wednesday, January 24 from 12 p.m. - 7 p.m. All animals adopted from JHS are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccines. Additional fees may apply.
