Humane Society

  • Pets: Leo

    If you’ve thought about adding a furry friend to your family, Leo (ID 575884) might be the perfect fit for you.

    This fellow is 4 years and weighs 67 pounds. He is friendly, active, and loves to play with toys. He also knows some basic commands, and would love to go to doggie school to learn more. Leo is used to being in a crate when left alone, and will need plenty of exercise daily. Since he has never lived with other pets, the shelter would recommend a meet and greet if you have a dog at home.

    To meet Leo, stop by the Humane Society of Broward County located at 2070 Griffin Road, a block west of I95 in Fort Lauderdale. The adoption kennels open daily at 10:30 and to see more pets available, learn about upcoming events or make a donation visit or call 954-989-3977.

  • Pets: Lola

    Looking to adopt a showgirl? If so, please pick me… Lola (ID 606775). After having a home for eight years, my family moved and the landlord said I had to go. My family was sad they had to give me up, but only had great things to say about me. I know basic commands and act like a puppy. I enjoy playing with toys and will even entertain myself if you’re busy. I like people of all ages and get along with other pets. I really like to swim, so if you have a pool that would be terrific! Please don’t pass me by just because I grew up. Adopt me and you won’t be disappointed. 

    After having a fabulous home my entire life the new baby is allergic to me and my family was devastated they had to give me up. They loved me dearly, but I just couldn't be around because the baby had a hard time breathing. So you know more about me...My name is Pokey (ID 606136) and I'm a sweet gal, but might be shy at first. If you tap your shoulders, I will jump into your arms. I like to cuddle at night and my favorite toys are ones that crinkle. Can I please go home with you? Also, I'm front-declawed.

When you adopt from the Humane Society of Broward County the dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, receive preliminary vaccinations, cats are feline leukemia tested, and dogs over 7 months are tested for heartworm.
