Hits’ Furry Friend of the Week: Colita!

Seeking a #FureverHome!

Sweet Colita would love to go home with you.  This 2 -year-old beauty was so happy to spend time with Jade Alexander from Hits 97.3 radio on her recent visit to the Humane Society of Broward County.  Colita was abandoned at the shelter one night when it was closed, so her past is a mystery. What we do know is that she is sweet, friendly, loyal, walks well on a leash and likes to play with toys.  She would love to make lots of memories with you.

To meet Colita  (ID A684564), or any other pet at the Humane Society of Broward County, complete the pre-adoption application at www.humanebroward.com. The shelter is located at 2070 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312, and the adoption kennels open daily at 11 a.m.  Call the adoption desk at 9954-989-3977 ext. 6 to learn more.  Appointments are not required.

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: The Admissions Department is open by appointment only. Please call 954-266-6873 and allow 48 hours for a call back. Closed on major holidays.

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.
