  • Pets: Viviana

    Adorable Viviana (ID 606741) is just two years old and weighs 53 pounds. She was a transfer from another shelter, so we don’t much about her past, but we do know she is friendly, playful and loves meeting new people.

  • Pets: Yoko

    At 10 years young, Yoko (ID 617904) certainly isn’t the youngest feline at the Humane Society, but she hopes you’ll open up your heart and home to her. Yoko is an outgoing kitty, who is good with people of all ages and she gets along with other felines.

  • Pets: Young At Heart

    Ellie (ID 588937) may have some pre-mature graying on her nose, but she certainly doesn’t act like a seven-year-old dog.  This sweet little girl loves attention and is a social butterfly.  At 31 pounds Ellie would benefit from an exercise program, but nothing too strenuous.  She was brought to the Humane Society of Broward County after her owner passed away, so now sweet Ellie is just waiting for the chance to find someone she can love again. Ellie's adoption fee has been generously sponsored by the estate of her former owner.

  • Purrty Lady

    Emma (ID 571271) lost her home because her family is moving and can’t take her along.  She is a 7 year young sweetie, who is at the shelter with her friend Betsy and they are hoping they can find a home where they can stay together.  The girls are a little shy at first, but once they settle in they will be your BFF’s.  You can adopt both these girls and pay one $30 adoption fee.  It would mean the world to them if you could take them home.

  • Sailed the High Seas to See You!

    Beautiful Kayra (ID 573702) is a 4-year-old, 32-pound spaniel mix that also came from Puerto Rico in hopes of finding a family to love here in South Florida.  With her wispy coat and curious personality, she will do well in a home where she can be showered with love and lots of toys.  Can Kayra be part of your family?

  • What Happens to Your Pets After You Die?

    For most pet lovers, your pets are family members, best friends and companions. There is a special appreciate for the role pets play in the lives of LGBT individuals and seniors. Still, it’s not something that many pet lovers think about: what would happen to your pet if you unexpectedly died? Just as you would arrangements in your will for the humans you love, you should also make provisions for your pets. Failure to do so could mean that, sadly, many pets end up in bad situations.
