Where The Money Goes…

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. Due to this year's pandemic and unforeseen circumstances, we need your support now more than ever. Every dollar is carefully spent to help the unwanted animals.


How Will Your Donation Help?

The Humane Society of Broward County is making every effort to put precautions in place to protect our participants, staff, volunteers and animals due to COVID-19. Because of the uncertainty of this virus, we reserve the right to make changes to our Walk day activities if we feel it is necessary to avoid putting anyone at potential risk of exposure or danger of any kind. We respect and appreciate our participants, and ask for your understanding as we prioritize safety for all involved.
