Get Moving!

There is still time to start the New Year off on the right foot by adopting a new dance partner!

Now through January 31, the adoption fees for all large dogs (40 lbs. or more) are waived. Adoption fees for cats and kittens are also waived (including our adoptable cats at Pet Supermarket stores located in Broward County). The adoption fee for small dogs (less than 40 lbs.) is $50.

The $20 non-refundable deposit applies to hold a stray/lost dog or cat.

All adoptions include spaying/neutering, all necessary vaccinations, a Broward County Rabies Registration License tag and a microchip!

Free Microchips at 2018 Rabies Clinics

This year, FREE microchips will be available with the purchase of a rabies vaccine and Broward County Rabies Registration License tag at all 2018 Rabies Clinics. The microchips are funded by a grant provided by PetSmart Charities® to help protect pets and increase their chances of getting back home in case they become lost. Both the rabies vaccine and County tag are required by law and will automatically be administered at the Clinic. If your pet has already received a rabies vaccination and license, please bring proof of the shot and tag with you! For information regarding this month’s Clinic, please see the Community Events section below, or visit our website for the 2018 Rabies Clinic calendar.
