April 30 was celebrated nationally as “Adopt a Shelter Pet Day,” but the Humane Society of Broward County hopes you’re still ready to help a pet in need regardless.

According to Cherie Wachter, VP of Marketing at the HSBC, “There are so many incredible dogs, cats, rabbits, and Guinea pigs waiting for a second chance, and we hope all those looking to add a furry friend to their family will stop by. Whether you’re looking for a jogging partner or a pal to snuggle on the couch with, a dog that enjoys leisurely walks or a pal for your kids to play with, there are a variety of pets longing for the chance to be part of a family.”

If you can’t adopt, but want to help, follow the shelter on Facebook and Instagram and be sure to share the posted pets in need of new homes. Spread the word, your share might be the one that makes a difference for a pet. You can see all the pets available, learn about volunteer opportunities or donate by visiting humanebroward.com.

Prior to going home all pets are spayed or neutered, receive preliminary vaccinations, treatment for fleas and ticks, wellness check, microchip, feline leukemia test for cats, heartworm test for dogs seven months and older, complimentary bag of Purina ONE pet food, and a limited 14-day follow-up care at participating VCA Animal Hospitals (restrictions apply).

The Humane Society of Broward County is located at 2070 Griffin Road, just a block west of I-95 and opens daily at 10:30 a.m.  Questions call 954-989-3977 ext. 6.

The Humane Society of Broward County is a private non-profit organization made possible by generous donations from animal enthusiasts like you. The shelter is not affiliated with any other animal welfare organization and receives no funding from them or the state.
