Two-year-old Penelope is a sweet girl that has been waiting a long time for a home. This shepherd mix was adopted from us previously, but unfortunately, was attacked by the other dogs in her new home and was brought back. It’s taken her some time to move past that experience, but she is starting to enjoy playing with other dogs again. We would recommend a very slow introduction to other pets if you already have one at home, but ideally Penelope would love to be the only pet and be the princess of your household.
Penelope’s friends at J.R. Dunn Jewelers have kindly sponsored her adoption fee. If she sounds like she might be a good fit for you, please fill out a pre-adoption application at www.humanebroward.com and come to the shelter to meet her. The shelter is located at 2070 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale, FL and opens daily at 11 a.m. If you have any questions, please call 954-989-3977 ext. 6.

If you can’t adopt, maybe you can help spread the word to help me find a home?
About Diamond in the Ruff
Since 2016, longtime Humane Society of Broward County supporter J.R. Dunn Jewelers has been helping to create true love – by sponsoring pet adoptions so that more dogs and cats can find happy homes. The program is called Diamond in the Ruff, and who knows diamonds better than J.R. Dunn?
J.R. Dunn features a pet each week – yes, 52 pets every year – and underwrites the entire adoption fee for that dog, puppy, cat or kitten. Diamond in the Ruff is promoted through J.R. Dunn’s local radio spots and social media, and the HSBC will do its share of promotion as well.
What a fabulous way to put their money where their heart is, and to bring attention to all the amazing dogs and cats that are so ready to be loved. Furry little diamonds in the rough – just waiting for their “perfect setting!”
Be sure to visit J.R. Dunn’s Facebook page each week to see who the featured pet is and you might just find your next family member. Of course to meet the pet, contact the Humane Society of Broward County at 954-989-3977.
