​We Count!

​Broward County Animal Care is proud to be a member of Shelter Animals Count--a new, collaborative initiative formed by a diverse group of stakeholders to create a platform for shelter data reporting.  By participating, our information will become part of a national database of sheltered animal statistics, providing facts, and enabling insights that will help save lives. In addition, we will be able to receive comprehensive, nationwide data, and gain an even greater understanding of the state of animal welfare and how we can all increase our positive impact for the animals we are privileged to serve.
