About Our Shelter:

The Humane Society of Broward County is a private, non-profit organization that was founded in 1944. We are an open admission shelter that accepts all owned animals. We find homes for thousands of animals each year.

Our shelter has more than 500 volunteers that help in all areas. We also have an extensive Education Department that visits schools on a regular basis to teach respect and kindness to all animals.

In addition to spaying and neutering all the pets that are adopted, we also offer low-cost spay/neuter services for pets belonging to residents in our community and feral cats. To get your pet sterilized contact spayneuter@hsbroward.com

Other programs and services the shelter offers include:
low cost dog obedience classes; free behavioral counseling; pet loss and grieving sessions; animal assisted therapy, foster care; cruelty investigations; vaccination clinics; owner's request for pet euthanasia and cremation; pet boutique and community events.

Our Adoption Process:

Please visit our shelter, we are open 7 days a week and adoptions opens daily at 10:00 a.m.. All adopters will meet with an adoption counselor to complete an adoption application and then meet their potential new family member. Please bring your driver's license with you or a bill that has your current address on it. All pets are spayed or neutered prior to going home, so the pet may not go home the same day.

The adoption fees are $25.00 for felines over six months and $50 for felines under six months; $100 for dogs six months and older and $135 for dogs under the age of six months. The adoption fee includes spay/neuter surgery, preliminary vaccinations, deworming, treatment for fleas, microchip, limited 10 day health care plan courtesy of VCA Animal Hospitals, feline leukemia test for cats, heartworm test for dogs over the age of 7 months, and rabies vaccination. The adoption fee for rabbits is $20.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
