Jimmy Patronis continues Cabinet dog adoption effort

Meet Mariah, a 50-pound, 2-year-old shelter dog.

It’s not the same as watching former Attorney General Pam Bondi in high heels heft a displaced dog at the start of a state Cabinet meeting, but dog adoption efforts continue with a statewide elected official.

Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis is taking the leash on the Cabinet’s role as a pet-adoption service with the Humane Society by posting a “Pup of the Month” on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

First up is Mariah, a 50-pound, 2-year-old “sweet and spunky shelter dog,” who as of Thursday remained unadopted.

Patronis has a way to go to match Bondi’s efforts. Over six years, Bondi found homes for more than 70 dogs that she paraded at the start of Cabinet meetings.

The News Service of Florida provides journalists, lobbyists, government officials and other civic leaders with comprehensive, objective information about the activities of state government year-round.
