For 27 years the Walk for the Animals has served as the Humane Society of Broward County’s largest annual fundraiser. In 2016, thousands of people and their dogs filled Huizenga Plaza and helped to raise over $525,000 to benefit the animals and programs supported by HSBC. The leisurely 1.25-mile walk winds through downtown Fort Lauderdale and along the New River. With a live band, strolling performers, a dog agility performance and much more, the Walk is entertaining for all.
The Humane Society of Broward County provides shelter, aid and responsible adoptions to animals entrusted to our care, and educates the community about respect and kindness to all animals.
The Humane Society of Broward County relies on the generosity of our community and companies to fund our operations and programs budget. We do not get funding from the government, United Way or any other national or local organizations with similar names. Income sources are: adoption fees; services such as dog obedience, vaccination clinics, spay/neuter programs; pet boutique sales; fundraising events; grants; general donations and from those people who leave the shelter in their will. Every dollar is carefully spent to help the homeless animals.
A $100 donation will cover heartworm tests for 5 dogs and, if positive, lifesaving medication started.
A $500 donation will allow 5 dogs to be spay/neutered to help them live a healthier life.
A $1,000 donation will cover the cost of xrays and surgery to repair a broken limb.
A $2,000 donation will pay for 100 pets to be microchipped so they'll never be lost again
A $5,000 donation will pay for spay/neuter surgery for 100 cats to help end the cycle of homeless felines.
