Animal Care and Adoption

Adopt a "Study Buddy!"

August is now here, which means Back to School! When getting all those school supplies, be sure to include the most important thing--a "study buddy," who can make even the most challenging homework assignment a lot more fun!
 
Adopt a pet from us and kids (18 and under) will receive a complimentary Paw Hero draw-string knapsack and pencils. We're even extending the ever-popular "Name Your Own Price" for dogs. Fees continue to be waived on adoptable cats!



Clear the Shelter Event!

​Join us Saturday, August 15th, from 11AM to 5PM, as we partner with NBC6, Telemundo 51 and Y100 Radio for a very special "Clear the Shelters" adoption  event at our shelter, 1870 SW 39th Street, Fort Lauderdale, 33315!
NBC6 Meterologidst Erika Delgado and Y100 Radio will broadcast live from our Adoption Center throughout the day.
 
In addition, all adoption fees, including the $20 non-refundable deposit for lost/stray pets, will be waived that day.
 
The Clear the Shelters effort, which is sponsored by Overstock.com, is a special pet adoption drive taking place throughout the United States in order to focus on the need to adopt homeless pets.  This is the first time the promotion will take place in our region. 

Here in South Florida, we will be participating with the Humane Society of Broward County; Miami-Dade Animal Services, and the Humane Society of Greater Miami.
