Keys Weekly is thrilled each week to showcase some “furever” friends that are ready, waiting and available for their perfect adoption “match” at the Florida Keys SPCA’s Marathon campus – complete with their best qualities, preferences and turnoffs to ensure the best fit.

From cats and dogs to Guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, reptiles and birds, the perfect addition to your family is waiting for you at one of the SPCA’s two campuses, in Key West and Marathon. The SPCA’s knowledgeable staff will help with advice and care tips while working to ensure a good fit between each pet and its people. The SPCA’s Golden Paw program also provides special assistance with vet bills and medications for special-needs and older animals that require a little extra TLC. Thanks to Luci’s Fund, adoption fees for dogs like Buddha are waived all month long. 

See all the animals waiting for a home at fkspca.org. To contact the Marathon campus, call 305-743-4800 or visit the campus at 10550 Aviation Blvd.

7-year-old female black lab mix.
Looking for: I’m a family gal. I love being around people!
Turnoffs: When people call me old. I may have a few gray hairs but I have lots of puppy-like energy.

3-year-old male domestic longhair.
Looking for: I am the king, the ruler of the roost. I demand a luxurious palace to meet my standards.
Turnoffs: Other male cats that think they’re better than me. Clearly, I am the best.

4-month-old female rabbit.
Looking for: I would love to hop into your home and heart.
Turnoffs: When people think my eyes are scary. I have a cool condition called “leucistic,” which just means I don’t have pigmentation in my eyes.
