National Adopt an Adult Dog Month


Fort Lauderdale, FL – October is national “Adopt an Adult Dog Month” and the Humane Society of Broward County encourages you to celebrate by stopping by to find your next family member and make your family complete! Waiting to meet you are fabulous dogs in all sizes, colors, shapes and breeds – both mixed and purebred. We all know puppies are adorable, but they require a lot of work. When you adopt an adult dog there are no surprises as to how big the dog will get, and often times they are already well-trained. You can also see the fantastic personality that’s already been developed, and adult dogs who’ve been “rescued” seem to sense it and bond quickly with their new owners.

Stop by any weekday in October and play PLINKO when you adopt an adult dog one year of age or older. You might win an extra bag of Purina ONE food, a discount in the shelter’s pet boutique, or save on your pet adoption fee.

All pets are spayed or neutered and micro-chipped before going home. In addition, they receive preliminary vaccinations and a 10-day limited health care plan courtesy of VCA Animal Hospitals. Dogs over seven months are tested for heartworm, and cats are feline leukemia tested. Adopters also receive a bag of Purina ONE pet food, and more goodies. The regular adoption fee for dogs over a year is $100.

Open seven days, the HSBC is conveniently located at 2070 Griffin Road, just a block west of I-95. Adoption hours are Monday – Saturday 10:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. and Sunday 10:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. For more information visit or call 954-989-3977, ext. 6.
