Meet Socks, our Pet of the Week! Socks is a huge ball of love, he may seem tuff in his kennel, but is a sweetheart once you’re next to him.

This very attentive and loyal 2-year-old boy came to us from the county shelter. He knows how to sit and stays by your side off the leash. He loves getting treats and does not pull on his leash too hard.

Socks is currently living with a foster family. To meet Socks (A656806) please fill out a pre-adoption application at and make an appointment. The shelter is located at 2070 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale and opens daily at 11 a.m. If you have any questions call 954-989-3977 ext. 6.

Can’t adopt, but want to help? The dogs at the shelter would really love some delicious treats and durable toys! Order directly from the shelter’s Amazon wish list or pick up a few things in the Pet Boutique located in the shelter lobby to donate.
