Heartland Rescue Ranch still has dogs and cats up for adoption

SOUTHPORT, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - While puppies and kittens are always popular Christmas gifts, some animals are still looking for their forever homes.

Four dogs, including a pit-bull named Jack, and numerous cats are currently up for adoption at Heartland Rescue Ranch in Southport.

Heartland says that adoption is a cheaper and easier option for dogs like Jack who are looking for a family and a forever home, especially during the holiday season.

Jasmine Stewart an employee at Heartland Rescue Ranch said, "Well Jack was found abandoned on Tram Road in Callaway and he's an older dog he's really, really gentle. He would need to be an only dog if anyone were to adopt him. But he's such a gentle giant and he's a lover and he just, he needs someone to snuggle with."
