Adopt a Sweetheart is back! Love is in the air during the Humane Society of Broward County’s “Adopt a Sweetheart” event on February 10 and 11, 2018. Whether you’re looking for a pooch to smooch or a cat to cuddle, you can find the Valentine of your dreams waiting for you at the adoption center.
There are currently over 100 pets looking for love, and Cupid has arranged for the adoption fee to be half price for pets one year of age and older. Some pets will even have their adoption fee waived! Regular adoption fees for pets over a year are $100 for dogs and $30 for cats.
Fun Games & Activities for All Ages
In addition, on Saturday the 10th there will be a bake sale from 10:30 – 3:00 with all types of delectable treats for people and pets. Mobile Mike and friends from iHeartMedia will be stopping by to say hi with some great giveaways.
Support a Sweetheart
Finally, as we announced last week, we have created Walk pages for 10 of our long-term furry friends in our shelter. For every $5 donors like you give towards their Walk pages, we’ll post a Valentine heart on their cage in their honor. It is our hope that by our Adopt a Sweetheart event these pets will either be adopted or their cages will be covered in adorable valentines!
Each pet’s individual Walk fundraising goals will correlate with its estimated cost of care during its time at the shelter. The cost ranges from approximately $150 for a healthy adult cat to over $800 for a dog diagnosed with heart worm disease.
It is our hope that this effort will help get these deserving dogs, cats, and pocket pets into loving homes by Valentine’s Day. But, we also hope to show our community how much of an impact every cent of their donation has towards the lives of these wonderful animals.
