After having a home her entire life, five-year-old Hazel (ID 583739) was given up because her family is moving and couldn’t take her along. This brindle beauty needs regular exercise and previously went on a one mile run every morning with her human mom. Hazel is good with kids of all ages, likes to run after toys, knows a few basic commands and is used to having her teeth brushed. Oh, and she enjoys getting a bath. Hazel is a wonderful dog who will keep you entertained…she just needs someone to give her a chance. Could it be you?

Lulu and Daisy are two-year-old Guinea pig siblings who are a bonded pair and looking for a home where they can stay together. Guinea pigs (also known as cavies) are curious, like to explore and this pair don’t mind being held. Guinea pigs require a diet of fresh greens and Timothy hay. In addition, like all animals, they require daily exercise so setting up an area for them to stretch and run around is ideal. If a Guinea pig has longer hair, they should be brushed daily so they are always looking their best. You can adopt two Guinea pigs or two rabbits and pay one adoption fee.

Adoption Ambassador: If you can provide a temporary home for a large-breed dog, become an Adoption Ambassador for the Humane Society of Broward County. Ambassadors help market the pet through your network of friends and associates, while giving the pet a vacation from the shelter environment. Sometimes a different setting is all that is needed to help our furry friends find their forever home.
Spay/Neuter Services: Those surgeries for the public’s pets have been suspended at this time.
Vaccine Clinic: Is open Monday – Friday, 9 AM – 4:30 PM credit cards only, no cash. This is a walk-in service and you may experience a wait of up to an hour. All cats must be in carriers and dogs on a leash at all times. If you have a retractable leash, please keep it short.
Animal Admissions: Opens at 8 AM daily and closes at 6:30 Monday – Saturday and 5:30 on Sunday.
Foster Care: If you can provide a foster home for a cat or large-breed dog, please visit the HSBC website and complete a foster application. It can be found by clicking the COVID-19 banner.
