Pets' Broward

We focus on the proactive side of the issue, with both our mission and our vision.


Pets’ Broward is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to create a community which no longer kills adoptable shelter pets and where all pets and people are valued and treated with respect, kindness, and compassion.

  • We safeguard, rescue, foster, heal, adopt and advocate for animals in need while inspiring community action and compassion on their behalf.
  • We provide services that decrease shelter intakes, as well as help pet owners in need.
  • We promote the humane treatment of animals through education, advocacy, and other services.

Fostering saves lives! We rescue, foster and promote adoptions for pets in need.

Foster homes give pets the extra time they need to find their forever homes! Ask any foster pet parent – fostering is the most rewarding and life-saving thing anyone can do. Besides donating money, temporary homes are the best way to save lives and anyone can do it! It literally saves lives.

Pets Broward is always in need of fosters

We advocate policy change that will have positive benefits for both shelter pets and owned pets.

In 2011, Broward County took in 17,002 pets and euthanized 9,672 of them – that is roughly 27 a day. This high kill-rate eventually led county commissioners to enact a resolution in April 2012, declaring that it would work to convert its animal shelters to no-kill facilities.

Pets’ Broward believes that achieving a community where we no longer kill healthy, adoptable pets is within our reach. We will continue to partner with other concerned residents and groups to be sure that this No-Kill dream becomes a reality in Broward County. We will work to change and improve laws so that we may better protect pets in our community.

We offer free and low-cost spay/neuter surgeries to reduce pet overpopulation.

Fixing your pet is the most effective and humane way to reduce pet overpopulation and save more animals’ lives. It is also a great way to keep your pet healthy and happy!
