Our County is home to many animal rescue and adoption programs including cats, dogs and even birds. There are rescue groups that are breed specific, such as greyhounds and boxers. But if you are interested in getting a new companion, please consider Broward County’s dog and cat adoption program. When you adopt from Broward County, not only do you get an awesome companion, you could be saving a life.
You see, our pet rescue is not yet a “no-kill” facility. Although the County Commission is doing its best to work toward that goal, you can help. Many of the animals taken in by Broward are older or have other issues. Do you have it in your heart to adopt such a pet? If you can’t adopt a pet, you might want to consider being a temporary foster home.
Broward County also offers rabies clinics and low cost spay and neutering services so everyone can make sure their pet is safeguarded and fewer unwanted pets are born.
Last but not least, if you can’t take in a pet, maybe you’ll consider volunteering at one of thetwo Broward County shelters.
I’m the proud Mom of two rescues, Cagney and Lacey. I got them when they were just two years old, yet they both already had several litters. They were bred to be breeders and lived most of their lives in small cages. It’s amazing to see their transformation from scared, timid creatures to playful companions full of life. Please consider adopting a rescue.
