My boyfriend and I have wanted a dog for the past few months but we didn't know if we should purchase a pure breed or adopt a rescue. We had always heard that shelter dogs were difficult and the facilities were rough. Although it was hard to see so many animals in need, when we first visited the humane society, we had no doubt in our mind that rescuing is the best choice. The staff were extremely helpful from finances, what we should expect, what type of dog personality would best fit us and if we were truly prepared to be owners. We finally purchased a sweet lab/beagle mix 2 days ago. The vet facilities at JHS have been treating her for heart worms and demodex. JHS gave us vouchers for her treatment of both conditions so that it would be no cost to us. It's most certainly a process getting her to trust us, but I think adopting a new pure breed puppy would have been more expensive and harder to train. I highly recommend JHS to all who are interested in adopting!
Out of all of the Platos Closet this is the one with the best variety in my oppinion. I'm a city girl living in Jacksonville. They have a great variety I feel like the others don't have form fixing things how ever here you can find from form fitting and sexy to a more conservative look.
This store may be somewhat hidden, but worth the trip. They have some great furniture, lots of books, a good variety of clothing and huge selection of shoes. I also hear they may be creating a 'boutique' section for the higher end clothing. Lots to see and great prices.
