Jacksonville, Florida – October 29 is National Cats Day, and besides being a perfect excuse to flood your feed with adorable cat pictures, it’s also the perfect time for you to consider adopting a cat that needs a family forever.
Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry is behind the idea, tweeting pictures of the Curry family’s cats, hickory and biscuit.
“They bring a lot of joy to our family,” the mayor wrote on Twitter. “Our shelter in 2020 Forest St. has kittens available for adoption so they can make your family even more joyful. coj.net/pets To learn more. “
If you cannot adopt a pet, you can also consider caring for an animal in need. Pet care and volunteering are other ways to support local animal shelters.
Cat season is still in full swing and our ACPS is looking for short term nursing homes. They will provide you with all the supplies and support you need to start this rewarding experience.
Stop by the shelter at the 2020 Forest St. Or send an email to email@example.com if you can help. pic.twitter.com/CbTUN8tOmz
