Adoption of an animal from a shelter guarantees double joy and when a celebrity donates for the adoption fees and shows up at the adoption event, that guarantees satisfaction of everyone involved plus a good time. Exactly that was the case recently at Jacksonville Jaguars’ foundation’s event where no less than 181 pets were adopted thanks to the generosity of NFL Jacksonville Jaguars player Malik Jackson.

Pets from the Jacksonville Humane Society (JHS) and Jacksonville Animal Care & Protective Services (ACPS) were available for adoption in two local PetSmart stores, and at JHS during the first weekend of May. Malik’s foundation Malik’s Gifts paid for all the adoptions fees during that weekend. The event went incredibly well! Citizens of Jacksonville responded in great numbers and a whopping 181 pets found new lovable homes. The people who work at the shelter say that the timing was perfect, cause the shelters were full!
