Hot Dog of the Week

Humane Society of Broward County

Dogs are the #1 most commonly owned pets on the planet, and with good reason.

When 5-year-old Grace arrived at the shelter, the clinic staff was not sure she would survive.  Found as a 38-pound stray, Grace was suffering from pyometra, an infection of the uterus.  This can occur in girl dogs that are not spayed and if left untreated the dog could die.  Fortunately for this chocolate-colored beauty, the veterinarians performed emergency surgery and she pulled through. Happy Grace has gained some weight and LOVES to play with her toys.  She needs a family who will spoil her and give her an amazing home.  Are you the one for her?

If you think Grace might be a good fit for you, please fill out a pre-adoption application at and come to the shelter to meet her. The Humane Society of Broward County is located at 2070 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale, FL and opens daily at 11 a.m. If you have any questions, please call 954-989-3977 ext. 6.

*** NOTE: The shelter is currently in need of newspapers. They’re used daily for the cat and rabbit kennels and their shelves are practically bare. Clean newspapers can be dropped off any time after 9 a.m. and the shelter is open 7 days a week. If you want to look at the pets, then come by after 11:00.

Join the PAWS (Pets Are Worth Saving) Auxiliary of HSBC to enjoy all kinds of fun fundraising events to support the shelter. Find more info here.

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:

Vaccine Clinic: Is open Monday – Friday, 9 AM – 5:30 PM (close daily from 11:40 – 1:00 for lunch). 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: The Admissions Department is open by appointment only. Please call 954-266-6873 and allow 48 hours for a call back. Closed on major holidays.

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.

The Humane Society of Broward County is always in need of new or gently used towels and washcloths. (They don’t need any blankets or pillows.) Donations can be dropped off any day outside of the main entrance.
