Our Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2019-2021 was introduced to the community by Animal Care Director Lauralei Combs, during our recent Open House event on October 27th.   The draft outlines our strategy to become a "No-Kill" shelter.   

We welcome your input on this draft Strategic Plan. ​ 

If you would like to comment and provide input on the plan, please send your feedback by December 7th to: SP_Community_Input@broward.org


Rabies Clinic - Includes FREE Microchips!

Our next Rabies Clinic will take place on Saturday, December 8, from 9AM to 2PM at  North Pompano Park, 4400 NE 18th Avenue, Pompano Beach, 33064.  

This year, FREE microchips will be available with the purchase of a rabies vaccine and Broward County Rabies Registration License tag.  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.  If your pet has already received a rabies vaccination and license, please bring proof of the shot and tag with you!

Cost for a one-year rabies vaccination and Broward County Rabies Registration tag is $25 for dogs and cats that are spayed/neutered; and $35 for pets that are not spayed/neutered. Microchips are FREE of charge. You must be a Broward County resident to attend. All dogs must be on leashes and all cats in carriers. ONLY CREDIT/DEBIT CARD PAYMENT WILL BE ACCEPTED!
