Congratulations Laura! We will miss you!

“BEING INSPIRED IS A DAILY QUEST” -Elizabeth Gilbert Nine years ago, I started my TV news career. Six years ago, I packed my things and moved to Tampa, FL to be a morning reporter right here at ABC Action News. In my time at this television station, I’ve become one of the faces you see in the evening. I have met the most amazing people, interviewed countless others, covered Pope Francis’ historic trip to Cuba, rode roller coasters for others’ comic relief, survived my first hurricane (thankfully with Rule #7 in the back of my mind), made the best of friends and been given the humbling opportunity to come into your home. Life is truly a road trip, not a destination… and this road trip is taking me to another beautiful city. July 19th will be my last day on air here at ABC Action News as I will begin a new venture in my journalism career. I am moving to Dallas, TX as I have been named the newest anchor/reporter at KXAS – NBC5. Yes, I am trading in my flip flops for cowGIRL boots. I’ve always said I want whatever God wants for me… and this is yet another blessing. I thank each of you for allowing me into your home each weekday. For following me on social media. For your prayers when I asked. For laughing with me when I just had to share something ridiculous with you. But most importantly, for your support. As a journalist, your trust is the one thing we strive to gain every day. Through in-depth reporting, attention to detail and giving you the facts. This note, is to sincerely thank you for your trust. I’m not good at saying goodbye… and never really like to. So, I will say, let’s keep in touch. You can still find me on Twitter, even after this page goes away at @LauraHarrisWFTS . As I say to you in many of my social media post… please, continue to spread kindness and not just today, but every day, be great. I can only hope, that at some point, I have inspired each of you, to do just that. Again, my last day on air is July 19th… so I’ve got a few more days to hang out with my partner in crime, Paul LaGrone ABC Action News. I hope you will join us. With my gratitude— Laura

Jacksonville, meet Pappy! Pappy is currently in a foster home, looking for a family all his owner. His perfect day would include a play date with another dog and then some nice, tasty treats! If he was an ice cream flavor it would be chocolate chip because he's super sweet. And as for cats? Pappy is a fan! If you're interested in adopting this one-year-old super star, please email [email protected] to get started. 👍 ...

Tuxedo had a great time with our campers this week! They all gave her a rump-scratch goodbye. If you have a family and would like to adopt, come meet our JHS Camp dogs: Champ-Champ, Corky, Marjorie, Tuxedo and Jake! ...

Adult cats are included in our $20 BOGO special! Our campers love spending time with the adult cats because "even though the kittens are cute the older cats need homes too" and "cats are just extra larger kittens!" Who can argue with that? ❤️ Come see our camper-approved cats today at 8464 Beach Blvd, open 7 days a week.
