Adoptable Pets of the Week

Adopting a Pet Just Became Easier and More Affordable!

Thinking about adopting a pet? Well we now have HUNDREDS of reasons for you to make a new best friend! Thanks to the Petco Foundation, you will receive a Certificate of Appreciation for FREE basic pet care when you adopt an adult cat or a dog weighing at least 40 lbs--a value of $550 for adult cats; and $650 for medium-to-large size dogs. Each voucher covers vaccinations; routine de-wormers; heartworm and leukemia screening; a 1-year supply of flea/tick preventative, AND a dental cleaning! Certificates are good for one year and will be issued at the time of adoption. So, don't waste time! Be sure to check out our available dogs and cats, select your pet, and then submit your Adoption Application!

Found Kittens?  Here is What you Should Do!

A shelter is no place for baby kittens.  If you find baby kittens please leave them in place to see if their Mother is in the area--she is the best caregiver for her babies.  If Mom is not around, then please help by fostering the kittens until they are old enough to be adopted. Animal Care will supply food and medical care for the family.  Read all about Caring for Found Kittens here.

Due to concerns regarding the Coronavirus, the Rabies Clinics have been postponed until further notice.  If your pet is in need of a rabies vaccination and the Broward County Pet Registration Tag, we recommend that you visit any of our Tag Suppliers located throughout Broward County.
