Looking To Add a Sweet Treat To Your Family?

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.

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.

Is an adult dog for you?
• Playful but will sleep at night!
• Chew on bones, not shoes
• Usually potty trained
• Personality developed
• Can still learn
• Eager to bond
• Appreciative

Or, is a puppy for you?
• Puppies love to play, even at 3:00 a.m.
• Puppies love to chew everything!
• Puppies need potty training
• Puppies need loads of time and attention
• Puppies are adorable but are hard work!
• Puppies are babies for at least a year

Choosing a Cat Instead
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.

Or is an adult cat for you?
• Playful, but more likely to sleep on your schedule
• Usually litter box trained
• Can be a good lap warmer
• Personality developed
• Appreciative
• Need a second chance

Is a kitten for you?
• Kittens love to play, even at 3:00 a.m.
• Kittens need to be trained to use a litter box
• Kittens need your patience and time
• Kittens are adorable but are Hard Work!
• Kittens are babies for at least a year

If some of these questions helped push you towards a loving dog or cat then Cuddles and Oreo are waiting for you at the Humane Society of Broward County.

Cuddles (ID 646830) is waiting to meet you at the Humane Society of Broward County. This four year old, 10 pound fellow was given up because he was jealous of the new human baby and needs more attention than his family could provide. Cuddles is a chill guy, who loves toys that make noise or squeak, will sleep with you if given the chance and as his name suits him…he loves to cuddle. This fellow will do best in a quiet home, or perhaps a home with older kids.

Looking to add a sweet treat to your family? If so, adorable Oreo (ID 647268) came from Louisiana after the hurricane damaged the shelter she was in and she would love to go home with you. Oreo loves to play with other dogs and is a bit of a social butterfly. She is 1 ½ years old and 43 pounds of happiness. Sadly she was in the previous shelter since March and only recently arrived at the HSBC. Can you make her wish come true and give her the loving home she so wants?

Sweet Baylee (ID 601923) would love to be part of your family. She lost her home because her family moved and could not take her along. Baylee is a wonderful 5 year old dog, who knows basic commands, is crate trained, will go to bed when you tell her too and is good when left alone. If you have kids at home, she will be the perfect nanny and she gets along with other dogs.

Looking for a kitten to snuggle with? If so, 14 week old Penelope (ID 647674) is the gal for you. This tortoiseshell beauty is curious, playful and will purr and purr when you pet her. She is just one of many adorable little ones looking to be adopted this week.

Please make 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.
