Humane Society of Broward County Offers Many Ways to Adopt

If you are thinking of adding a loving and loyal pet to your family, the Humane Society of Broward County (HSBC) offers many ways to connect with one. The public can visit the shelter, located at 2070 Griffin Road, or participate in several events HSBC is offering in Ft. Lauderdale and the surrounding areas this month. Whether you’re looking for big or small, purebred or a unique mixed breed, you can find it at HSBC.

HSBC provides shelter, aid and responsible adoptions to animals entrusted to its care, and educates the community about respect and kindness to all animals. The 33,000 square-foot, air-conditioned shelter can house over 300 dogs and cats. In 2016, the non-profit placed nearly 7,000 dogs, cats and other furry friends.
“The Humane Society of Broward County gets amazing animals that need a second chance,” said Cherie Wachter, Vice President of Marketing. “If you or your family is looking to add a pet, we hope adopting – whether from the HSBC or another shelter or rescue – is where you will look. Many of these animals are at shelters because of no fault of their own and they need caring, understanding people who will open up their heart and home to them.”

Some of the HSBC’s events this month include:

  • Puppy PJ Party – On November 7, from 5:30pm to 9pm, it’s time for parents to get a night out! Children, ages 4-12, can put on their best pajamas and visit HSBC for a Puppy Pajama Party. There will be fun activities, pizza, popcorn, movies, and, of course, furry friends. Cost is $40 per child. Held at HSBC.
  • Pit Stop at Road Dawg Saloon – On November 18, from 2pm-7pm, bring your dog and help support homeless pets. The Pit Stop will be holding a fundraiser to promote the education and adoption of bully breeds. There will be drink specials, raffles, and a charity poker game. Held at Road Dawg Saloon.
  • Black Friday – On November 24, avoid the mall crowds on “Black Friday” and add a furry friend to your family instead. HSBC will be offering “Door Busters” all day long, which means the adoption fee will be waived for select pets. In addition, the adoption fee will be half price for all pets one year of age and older. Held at HSBC.
  • When you adopt from the Humane Society of Broward County, all pets are spayed or neutered before going home. In addition, they receive preliminary vaccinations, a microchip, heart worm test for dogs over seven months, feline leukemia test for cats, a limited 10-day health care plan courtesy of VCA Animal Hospital, a bag of Purina ONE food, a 30-day trial membership in Trupanion pet insurance (restrictions apply) and more.
