Looking For A BFF? The Humane Society of Broward County Has Some Waiting For You

June 9, 2022

Can I be your New BFF (Best Friend Forever)? Everyone at the Shelter thinks I’m one cool guy, I just need someone to give me a chance.

I might be big… I weigh 70 pounds and could be part American Bulldog. My name is Papa (ID#: 654573) and I’m only two years old. So, you know more about me, I love to be with people and would do best in a home with Adults or Teenagers - I sometimes get excited and don't want to knock any Little Ones over. I'm Potty Trained, good with other Dogs and love to go for walks. I may want to be by your side a lot, at least until I get settled into my New Home. Thanks to Dolly's Dream, my Adoption Fee is sponsored and I get to go Home with things to help me settle in.

Looking to add some Entertainment to your Family? If so, pick me Isaac (ID#: 655732)! I’m curious, playful, love to be pet and am a Little Baby at just 16 weeks old. There are more than two dozen Little Ones like me hoping to find our forever homes, so if you’ve thought about adding a Kitten, now is a great time to head over to the shelter. Did you know when you Adopt, all of the Pets are Spayed or Neutered, get a Microchip and Preliminary Vaccinations? We also get 14 days of Limited Health Care from VCA Animal Hospitals and a Bag of Purina ONE Pet Food.

So if Papa and Isaac don't fit your Lifestyle, there are many more future BFF Possibilities waiting for you to visit them. The Experts at The Humane Society of Broward County know that the hardest part is choosing your New Forever Friend. The HSBC Staff are well trained to help you find the right fit in your New Pet, with a personality and Lifestyle to match your own.

Preparing to Adopt
If you lease your home, check with your Landlord before Adopting to be sure you are allowed to have a Pet and can afford all required Pet Deposits. Pets are sometimes returned because of Lease Restrictions and/or Landlord’s disapproval of the Pet chosen. Even if you Own your Home or Condo many Homeowners Associations may have rules that don't allow Animals over a certain weight, so always check first. This can be an expensive lesson since the Adoption Fees are Non-Refundable and being returned to the Shelter can be a stressful experience for the Animal.

Once you've selected a new friend, all Dogs and Cats making the transition to a new home will need time to adjust to a New Family and may require House Training and Behavior Training to correct Problem Behavior. Positive Reinforcement-Based Training is recommended for all newly Adopted Dogs and Puppies.

This is a lifetime commitment to your Pet. Remember that the Animal you choose has already been abandoned or unwanted at least once in its life. Dogs and Cats may live 12 to 15 years or more. Your thoughtful consideration, preparation and commitment will help ensure a lifelong placement.
