Puppies and kittens are great, but we find that adult animals really are the perfect companions. Although the “zoomies” can be fun, adult animals are a little more even-tempered, well-behaved, and most even have their basic obedience skills down pat. This week’s Diamond in the Ruff is the purr-fect example of why we love adult animals so much!

Diamond in the Ruff: Lizzie

Meet Lizzie (ID 503671)! She is a talkative 13 year old 10lb spayed brown tiger shorthair who loves adults, kids, and other cats and is willing to tolerate dogs if she chooses to. Although she likes squeaky toys (who would have guessed?!), Lizzie is a very relaxed little lady who loves to lounge. However, if you love a good snuggle or two, she is okay with being picked up and will usually choose to be held for short periods of time.

We understand that kittens may distract you, but please stop by the shelter and ask to meet Lizzie! We know you won’t be disappointed. And, to add the icing to the cake, our friends at JR Dunn Jewelers have generously sponsored this sweetie’s adoption fee. How wonderful is that?

About Diamond in the Ruff

Since 2016, longtime Humane Society of Broward County supporter J.R. Dunn Jewelers has been helping to create true love – by sponsoring pet adoptions so that more dogs and cats can find happy homes. The program is called Diamond in the Ruff, and who knows diamonds better than J.R. Dunn?

J.R. Dunn features a pet each week – yes, 52 pets every year – and underwrites the entire adoption fee for that dog, puppy, cat or kitten. Diamond in the Ruff is promoted through J.R. Dunn’s local radio spots and social media, and the HSBC will do its share of promotion as well.

What a fabulous way to put their money where their heart is, and to bring attention to all the amazing dogs and cats that are so ready to be loved. Furry little diamonds in the rough – just waiting for their “perfect setting!”

Be sure to visit J.R. Dunn’s facebook page each week  to see who the featured pet is and you might just find your next family member. Of course to meet the pet, contact the Humane Society of Broward County at 954-266-6839.
