Alaqua Animal Refuge pet of the week is 'Jack-A-Roo'


Jack-A-Roo’s search for his forever home is coming up on one year.

His previous owner became ill and was no longer able to care for him.

As time goes by without a loving home, his sweet spirit continues to diminish and he is becoming more and more withdrawn.

This handsome boy continues to be overlooked by visitors, yet we are confident that in the right home, he will learn to trust again and flourish as a perfect companion.

Jack-A-Roo is a 3 ½ year old Australian Shepherd and weighs about 64 lbs. He would love a fenced yard and would thrive as an only pet.

If you give Jack-A-Roo a chance, both of your lives will surely change for the better.

Jack-A-Roo’s adoption fee is $150 which includes his neuter, microchip and current vaccines.
