Pets: Cookie

Cookie Via Humane Society of Broward County

For 10 years Cookie (ID 624319) had a home, but was recently given up because he sometimes likes to scratch the carpet.

Perhaps if he had a proper scratching post might be different, but now here he sits all alone at the shelter waiting for someone to give him a chance.

Although Cookie is a big fellow at 18 pounds, he is a little shy and needs time to warm up to new people. He gets along with older kids and will do best in a quieter home. Thanks to Ernie Goodnight - a real cat lover - his adoption fee has been sponsored, he just needs someone to fall in love and take him home...will it be you?

To meet Cookie and all the other wonderful pets waiting for a home, visit the Humane Society of Broward County at 2070 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale. The shelter opens daily at 10:30 and to see who else needs a home, learn about upcoming events, or make a donation, visit
