​Summer Fun!

The weather is already hot, so why not make this summer extra fun by adopting a dog or cat. Beginning May 1 through August 31, you can continue to name your own adoption fee for a dog or puppy. Adoption fees on our cats and kittens are waived (including our adoptable cats at Pet Supermarket stores located in Broward County). 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!

Adopt a Beach Bud!

Join us Saturday, May 20, from 11AM to 4PM, for a special "Beach Bud" adoption event at our Adoption Center, 2400 SW 42nd Street, Fort Lauderdale. The focus of the event is to put the spotlight on big dogs who typically are not adopted as quickly as smaller dogs.

As part of the promotion, all adoption fees on larger-sized dogs (40lbs or more) will be waived. In addition, adopters who select a big dog that day will receive a special "Beach Bud Bag," filled with items to help care for their new pet.

The event is made possible as part of a grant received by the Petco Foundation tosupport lifesaving programs for pets in need throughout the County.
