This week, the Humane Society of Broward County has some wonderful pets to choose from. All adoptions include spaying or neutering, vaccinations, a microchip,  treatment for fleas and ticks, and much more.


Penelope (ID A660782) is a 4-year-old 59-pound girl from a shelter on the west coast of Florida that suffered tremendous damage after Hurricane Ian. They had no water or power, and it was sweltering.

She was scheduled to go on an airplane and fly to a shelter in Seattle, but there wasn’t room for her. According to the Humane Society, she was at the shelter before the storm, so no one is looking for her. She’s a social butterfly and enjoys meeting new people.

Penelope appears potty-trained and may even want to snuggle on the couch with you. Thanks to dog lovers Sonya and Cesar, her adoption fee has been sponsored.

To meet her or any other pet, fill out the pre-adoption application on and then stop by the Humane Society of Broward County. The shelter opens daily at 11 a.m. at 2070 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale. For questions, call 954-989-3977 ext. 6.

Adoptions are $300 for puppies five months and younger, $150 for dogs six months and older, $100 for kittens five months and younger, and $40 for cats six months and older (Adopt one, get one free).

Located at 2070 Griffin Rd, in Fort Lauderdale.
