Happy National Pet Day!

In this blog post, we feature our Diamond in the Ruff, two volunteers worthy of some praise, and we celebrate National Pets Day in a BIG way!


JR Dunn’s Diamond in the Ruff

This week’s JR Dunn Jeweler’s Diamond in the Ruff is a truly spectacular animal that would make a great pet for anyone: Snow (ID 548495).

Diamond in the Ruff: Snow A548495
Snow is a super affectionate, loving, all around amazing dog! He walks well on a leash, loves to run around in the backyard and is wonderful with people big and small! Snow is also wonderful with other dogs! He would do best in an active household and would make an incredible family dog! Ever thought about making an addition to your family tree? Snow would be happy to oblige!

Scurry on down to our shelter or call 954-989-3977 ext. 6 if you are interested, and if you can’t adopt, please share!

About the “Diamond in the Ruff” Series:

Longtime Humane Society of Broward County supporter J.R. Dunn Jewelers will be 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 will feature a pet each week and will underwrite the entire adoption fee for that dog, puppy, cat or kitten. Diamond in the Ruff will be 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.
