Bouquets to Executive Director Denise Deisler and the Staff and Volunteers at Jacksonville Humane Society
Bouquets to Executive Director Denise Deisler and the staff and volunteers at Jacksonville Humane Society for placing second in their division and fifth overall in the ASPCA Rachael Ray 100K Challenge. From June through August, more than 50 shelters competed nationally to adopt out more animals than they did the previous summer. JHS found homes for 1,612 animals, a 46 percent increase over the summer of 2012, winning $20,000 to help support Kitten University, its offsite adoptions and pet safety net program. JHS partnered with First Coast No More Homeless Pets, Jacksonville Animal Care and Protective Services and dozens of other area animal rescue groups for another successful mega-adoption event Oct. 4-6 — 916 pets were placed with families.
