Roll with the Big Dogs!

This Fall, from September 1 to November 17, adopt a Big Dog (40 lbs. or more) and receive FREE pet supplies! Adopters can name their own adoption fee for all dogs. Fees for cats continue to be 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!

Clear the Shelter Event

Our Clear the Shelter event with NBC6 on August 19 was a big success! 40 pets were adopted that day and 21 deposits were placed on dogs and cats in our stray section. Thanks to NBC6 and all sponsors of the event for their support of this life-saving event!
