What You'll Get
Dogs received the title “man’s best friend” because of their constant companionship, unquestionable loyalty, and uncanny ability to show up with bail money after every bungled train robbery. Acquire a faithful fur-friend with today’s Groupon: for $38, you get pet-adoption fees for one animal at Jacksonville Humane Society (up to a $125 value). The adoption fee covers:
- Spaying or neutering
- Identification-microchip implant
- Heartworm test
- Initial flea, tick, and parasite prevention
- 30-day health insurance
- Feline leukemia & immunodeficiency viruses test (cats only)<p>
Gazing at potential owners from their temporary homes, Jacksonville Humane Society’s dozens of friendly cats and dogs eagerly await adoption by a caring new family. Kittens, such as the 3-month old Tank, beg for coddling and playtime with their wide-eyed exuberance and miniature croquet sets, and adult and senior animals such as Yoshi, wizened in his eight years, lavishes steadfast companionship. To ensure potential pet owners are paired with a four-legged pal of appropriate temperament, the shelter’s color-coded Meet Your Match personalized pet-matching service narrows down the adoptable field with a quick survey. Adopting an animal, like asking a potted fern to marry you, is an important life decision that should not be taken lightly, and it entails a slew of responsibilities and expenses. Each furry new chum will require a rabies tag ($20) (necessary for all animals in Duval County) and lifelong heartworm protection ($21–$30 per month).
