The Humane Society of Broward County (HSBC) was recently presented with the Purina Better with Pets Award by Gary Quinn, Vice President of Programming & Owned Properties of NBC Sports and Purina’s Pro Plan Brand Manager Jason Dolan.
Russ and Robin Chard, HSBC’s Kathy Tricomi, Purina’s Joan Hurley and HSBC’s President and CEO Christopher Agostino.
The presentation took place in Philadelphia at the National Dog Show. Purina was impressed with all the hurricane-related efforts the HSBC was involved with this hurricane season. This included flying 164 shelter pets out of the storm’s path to California prior to hurricane Irma, setting up and running a pet friendly shelter to accommodate 300 Broward County residents and their pets, accepting pets from shelters in the Florida Keys, Collier County, Puerto Rico and St. Croix, and providing food and supplies to shelters.
