The Florence Area Humane Society invites you to eat, drink and dance the night away at the 2019 Bone-e-fit! Taking place on Thursday, May 2nd from 7PM to 10PM in Downtown Florence, this “feel good” event will bring close to 600 of Florence’s animal-loving citizens together to help raise much needed funds for the homeless dogs and cats in our community.

Dog of the Month

Willie was found as a stray already neutered and microchipped. Messages were left with the last registered owner to the micro chip, but no one ever came forward to claim him. He is a friendly, gentle boy who suffers with flea dermatitis. It will be important for him that his new owners help him keep his flea population under control so he doesn’t have to itch so much. Come by to see Willie and visit him in person. You’ll be glad you did. 

Adoption Fee: $85

Dog of the Month

Otis is a 1 ½ year old Chow mix. Otis heartworm negative and a little bit shy, but the more he visits with people the more he gets over being so shy. He was found walking along the side of the road near Wilson High School. He deserves a loving family to call his own. 

Adoption Fee: $85

Cat of the Month

Mr Pickles is a 2 year, domestic short hair cat. He is an orange tabby and white neutered male cat. He came to the shelter February of 2019. He had previously been adopted from another shelter and the owners surrendered him. He would love to find a real forever home. 

Adoption Fee: $65
