This month local Hollywood artist (and HSBC Photography Volunteer) Alissa Alfonso stopped by the shelter to photograph another recycled-materials #StyledShoot.

In honor of American Independence Day, Alissa put together this stunning hand-sewn flag, using a combination of upcycled and hand-dyed fabric.

Our pets certainly do look patriotic, don’t you think? Special thanks to HSBC Volunteers Sara Sears, Kat McMenemy, and Jan McMillan for assisting Alissa during this photo session.

Happy Independence Day to you all, and please remember that we are closed Tuesday, July 4, 2017.

Arrow 578119 and Archer 578120

4 months old, male
April is a shy gal, but don’t worry – she warms up quickly. This gentle lady is loving and sweet. Her favorite things are treats and snuggles. She would do best with a patient family who has time to train her.

Aya 577093

4 months old, female
Aya is a typical puppy with a lot of energy. She’ll need obedience training to refine her housetraining skills, but she already knows sit! Very smart and super sweet girl. She just adores people!

Becca 576899

2 years old, male
June is Adopt a Cat Month and Becca (ID 576899) is hoping that you will give her a home. This beauty is 8 months old, gets along with other pets, loves to cuddle and she will even follow you around the house. Becca is just one of many fabulous felines looking to be adopted at the Humane Society of Broward County.

Ernie 576558

13 weeks old, male
Ernie and his brother Bert (ID 576556) are adorable, loving kittens who are looking for a home. Although we are not requiring that they be adopted together, you can adopt both playful boys for just one adoption fee.

Boy George 577206

1 year old, male
Boy George is a very affectionate rabbit who likes to be held. He also LOVES pretzels.

Brucie 577603

2 years old, female
Brucie would make the perfect addition to any family. She is incredibly sweet and is good around children as young as 5 months old. She is playful and moderately energetic, but she is able to calm down easily. On top of that, she knows a lot of commands and is easy to train. We highly recommend her for a playful family.

Bugs 577380

Bugs is a sweet bunny who will let you hold him. Great bingewatching buddy!

Elena 577780

10 months old, female
Elena is an energetic puppy who is sure to fill your day with hilarious hijinks and play. She loves treats and is able to calm down quickly when playtime is over. She would be a good match for any family that has the time to give her the basic obedience training she needs.

Gringo 577370

4 years old, male
Gringo also came from Puerto Rico. In the short time he has been here, we can tell that he loves people and receiving attention. Gringo is super sweet! Plus he walks well on a leash.

Gump 577887

4 years old, male
Gump has a very sweet personality. He is energetic and loves people. He could use some obedience training to polish off his housetraining and commands.

Lana 578137

2 years old, female
Lana the Chocolate Lab is super sweet – go figure! She is playful and filled with energy. She loves people and other dogs, but she does need some basic obedience classes to polish off her training.

Luna 577196

2 years old, female
Luna is a sweet, calm dog. She is great with dogs and people of all ages (even as young as newborns), and she is potty trained. She is just a cuddle bug that loves to hang out.

Marsh 577642

2 years old, female
Marsh is a very energetic puppy. He is crate trained and good with other dogs, but he needs some obedience training in order for him to learn the basics!

Pisces 577384 and Gemini 577385

1 years old, female and male
Pisces and Gemini love other dogs and cats! They’re very playful with them. They’re pretty independent living at home, but if you’re looking for a playmate for your current pet – look no further! Pisces, however, does love to cuddle and receive affection!

Romina 577796

4 months old, female
Romina came from Puerto Rico with her litter-mates. Sadly she is the last one remaining at the shelter. She is sweet but very shy. Please just give her some time, and we guarantee you she’ll be a wonderful addition to any family.

Shayna 576539

3 years old, female
“My name is Shayna (ID 576539) and I’m a 3 year old, 46 pound American Staffordshire terrier mix who came all the way from Puerto Rico to find my new forever home, can you make my wish come true? I’m a sweet and gentle gal who enjoys going for walks and I like to give hugs. I like to play and hope you’ll get me lots of toys to keep me entertained. The Humane Society veterinarian did a special surgery on my eyes and now I feel so much better… my eyelashes are not itching my eyes anymore.

Please don’t pass me up just because I grew up, I want a family to love. I’m a Dolly’s Dream dog so my adoption fee is sponsored and I get to go home with the goodies I need to settle into my new home. Call the Humane Society of Broward County at 954-989-3977 ext. 6 for more details.”

Sonia 578248

1 years old, female
Looking for the perfect lap dog? Sonia is your gal. She is very sweet and calm! She has never had obedience training before, and while she is certainly not misbehaved, we believe she would be the most amazing dog with a little schooling to perfect her potty-training skills!

Theo 577593

1 years old, male
Here’s a smarty-pants for you! Theo knows a ton of commands for his age, (sit, lay down, paw, etc.) and he learns quickly. He is also active, too, and would make a wonderful companion to anyone who likes long walks on the beach. Plus, he loves to give hugs and kisses – so we hope you like a cuddle bug!

Tucker 577226

2 years old, male
“Hi, my name is Tucker (ID 577226). I’m a 2-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix, and I am looking to find my forever home. I was originally adopted from Broward County Animal Care & Adoptions, but one of my new family members developed an allergy to me.
I miss them, especially the kids, so I really hope I can join your family. So you know a little bit about me…I get along with people and dogs of ALL ages, and I absolutely LOVE TOYS! I’m sweet and know some basic commands, but I’m still perfecting my potty training. Thankfully, I love nothing more than pleasing my owners, so I promise to learn quickly.

Adopt me & my adoption fee is sponsored thanks to Dolly’s Dream. This program helps bully breed dogs, like me… and I’m the 50th dog they’ve sponsored here at the Humane Society of Broward County. Oh, and I come with a crate, collar & leash, ID, bed, chew toys, walking harness & more – all to get me settled in my new home.”

Waffles 574202

2 years old, fale
If you are looking for a jogging partner, or just an energetic addition to your active family, look no further than Waffles! This boy loves to play, jump, and go for walks. Plus, he loves to doted on… especially if you give him treats!

Ziggy 366085

2 years old, female
Ziggy is a cuddle-loving attention-hog! He will follow you around like a shadow all day. He actually doesn’t like to share the spotlight with any other animals (he acts jealous), so we recommend that he go to a home where he is the only pet.
