Meet Finn, July's Pet of the Month.
Finn is a ridgeback/lab mix that was found wandering the streets in Chipley, FL at only 3 months old. He was rescued by L&R rescue of Navarre Beach, FL and was adopted by Margo and Paul McDaniels. He now lives with them in Sarasota.
He's traveled to several destinations, but Key West is one of his favorites. He loves staying at Ambrosia and having breakfast out by the pool. He loves that Key West is so pet friendly and that he's welcome at so many great restaurants, art galleries, and shops.
Thank you, Finn, for being Ambrosia's Pet of the Month for July. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
A donation will be made in Finn's name to L&R Rescue in Navarre, FL
