Prepare your Pet Now for Hurricane Season! 

​Hurricane Season is here!  To help protect your pet, now is the time to ensure they can be identified in case they get lost in the storm. Our Pet Care Clinic can help by providing low-cost vaccinations, as well as a Broward County Pet License tag and a microchip.  For more information and to make an appointment, please visit our Pet Care Clinic page. 

In addition, now through Friday, June 10th, residents are able to purchase certain hurricane supplies without paying taxes on the items.  Some pet supplies, such as cans or pouches of wet pet food, are also included.  For more information on the Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday click here.​

Equitable Provision of Services

Boward County Animal Care and Adoption is developing its services along Four Major Pillars​

  1. ​Public Safety
  2. Clean Shelter
  3. Community Animal Care
  4. Equitable Provision of Services

The last pillar--Equitable Provision of Services--is focused on ensuring that Animal Care listens to all Broward County residents, that our services are provided equitably to all Broward County residents, that our services are provided equitably to all of the County's diverse communities, and that those services are tailored to the specific needs of those communities. A step toward that goal is the newly published Animal Service Facilities in Broward County, ​which shows the distribution of animal services throughout the County.​
