If you're looking for a new best friend, I hope you will pick me, Buttons (ID 629980). I’m a 4-year-old mixed breed gal, who weighs 50 pounds. I love to be around people and I love mealtime and treats. The shelter is not sure how I am with other dogs, but I need a home without cats or small animals. Thanks to JR Dunn Jewelers, my adoption fee is sponsored, so can I be part of your family? One thing you should know, I am heartworm positive, so my new owner will need to bring me back to the shelter to be treated a few times. Heartworm disease is spread from the bite of an infected mosquito and it is not contagious to people or other pets.

The Humane Society of Broward County is open by appointment only now. To see who needs a home, visit www.humanebroward.com . If you can’t adopt, but have a dog and are in need of a heartworm test and prevention, the shelter’s vaccine clinic is open Monday – Friday 9 AM – 2 PM, credit card only. The shelter is located at 2070 Griffin Road, a block west of I-95.
