Need A New Love This Valentine's Day?

February 10, 2022

Does Valentine's Day get you down? Are you looking for someone to give you kisses every day? If you said “yes” to both of these questions then here are some possible new loves in your life.

Nelda (ID 650484) is an adorable gal waiting to meet you at the Humane Society of Broward County. She is four years old, and the volunteers say she is super sweet, walks well on a leash, loves everyone, and has a happy personality. Nelda is curious, will follow you around and appears potty-trained. She would love to be your forever Valentine. Stop by to meet her and we know you too will fall in love.

Adorable Shadow (ID 651461) and his camera-shy brother Panther are looking for a home where they can stay together. Sadly, they were given up because someone was allergic to them. The pair are good with kids and birds; but might be shy around dogs. Both enjoy watching TV with you and they like to play with each other. Panther is a bit more reserved until he gets to know you, while Shadow is more out-going. You can adopt the duo and pay one adoption fee, that way this family can stay together.

Adorable Bud (ID 651377) wants to be your pal! At 7 years old, this handsome fellow might have some Labrador retriever in him. Don’t let his age deter you, he is quite spry for his age and likes to chase after toys, though he doesn’t always bring them back. Bud is not a fan of felines or small dogs, but he may do ok with a larger dog. He appears to be potty-trained and would love a family to spoil him. Can you make his wish come true?

Quinn (ID 651669) is a beautiful bunny who wants to hop into your heart and home. She has a very soft coat and a sweet personality. She, like all rabbits, require lots of hay to help aid in digestion and lots of leafy greens. Quinn is just one of several rabbits waiting for a loving home.

Animal shelters are your best source when looking for a pet. Not only do they have a great selection of adult animals for adoption, but they also have kittens and puppies, even purebred animals. In fact, on average, purebreds account for about 25% to 30% of a shelter’s dog population.

Choosing a Dog?
If you are thinking of adding a loving and loyal canine companion to your family, you will want to consider many factors in selecting the type of animal which best suits your lifestyle and fits your needs.

Choosing a Cat?
Cats make wonderful pets. Because they’re less demanding, they can easily adjust to a variety of lifestyles and living spaces. Every cat is a true individual though, so it’s important to take the time to choose a four-footed friend who’s right for you.

When you adopt from the Humane Society of Broward County all pets are spayed or neutered before going home. In addition, they receive preliminary vaccinations, a microchip, heart-worm test for dogs over seven months, feline leukemia test for cats, a limited 14-day health care plan courtesy of VCA Animal Hospitals, and a bag of Purina ONE pet food while supplies last.

For more details call the Humane Society of Broward County at 954-989-3977 ext. 6. If you would like to meet a pet, please fill out a pre-adoption application on the website www.humanebroward.com then stop by, the shelter is located at 2070 Griffin Road, a block west of I95 and opens daily at 11 AM. If you can’t adopt, but want to help the animals, join us for the 2022 VCA Walk for the Animals on March 5. Learn more at www.walk4theanimals.com
