Have A Furry Holiday: Invite A Pet For A Holiday Sleepover
December 15, 2022
Shelter pets should not have to spend the holidays alone, so the Humane Society of Broward County is hoping you’ll open your heart and home and give a furry friend in need, a cozy place to spend the holidays. According to Cherie Wachter, VP of Marketing, “sleepovers are normally five days long and give potential adopters the opportunity to see how the pet they choose will blend in with their family.
For the holidays, select pets will be available for holiday sleepovers for two weeks starting December 19th! This gives the pets a break from being in the shelter and lets them get spoiled. Of course, the ultimate goal is for the pet to spend not just this holiday season in their sleepover home, but many more future holidays as well. We started doing sleepovers during the Pandemic and since then more than 30 cats and dogs have found their permanent families as a result.”
There are more than two dozen dogs, cats and rabbits who are candidates for a holiday sleepover that can last up to two weeks; sorry puppies and kittens are excluded.
Pets available for the extended sleepovers include several who have been passed by for no apparent reason. Once in a home environment they relax and just want to be part of the family. Look for the animals with the special ribbon on their photos starting December 19th by visiting: www.humanebroward.com Complete the Pre-Adoption Application on the website and then stop by.

Whatever holiday you celebrate, a holiday sleepover could be what you and a shelter pet need to make this special time of year sparkle!
