Hits’ Furry Friend of the Week: Uhura

Seeking #Furever Home!

After having a home my entire life, someone developed allergies and brought me back to the shelter.  My name is Uhura (ID 591076), and I’m named after a character from Star Trek, so if you’re a Trekkie, we might be the perfect match!  I’m 5 years young and really act like a dog in a cat suit.  I’m social, will meet you at the door, crave attention and like to play hide and seek.  When I arrived at the shelter it was discovered that I had bladder stones, so I had to undergo surgery to make me feel better.  I’m so glad those are gone, but now I will have to have a special diet.  Everyone here thinks I’m amazing and I got to hang out with everyone in their offices.  I made my self at home, climbing on some boxes and hanging out on different people’s desks.  While I haven’t lived with other pets or kids, I’m really easy going and I’m sure we will all get along.  I am front declawed so I can never go outside.

To meet me or any other pet, complete the pre-adoption application at www.humanebroward.com and then stop by the Humane Society of Broward County located at 2070 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale.  The adoption kennels open daily at 11 a.m. and if you have any questions call 954-989-3977 ext. 6.

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 – 4:30 PM credit cards only, no cash. 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: Opens at 8 AM daily and closes at 6:30 Monday – Saturday and 5:30 on Sunday.

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. It can be found by clicking the COVID-19 banner.

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 admission’s door located at the far west side of the building, at 2070 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale, just west of I-95.
