As we count down the days until Giving Tuesday, we will be sharing some heartwarming stories from our Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) Teams who have done so much to spread comfort and happiness in our community this past year.

Camp Erin

The Animal Assisted Therapy program of the Humane Society of Broward has been a wonderful part of Camp Erin providing pet therapy to our campers! This past August, Camp Erin hosted a special 2-day day camp for children and teens who were affected by the Parkland tragedy.

[AAT Manager] Marni brought a team of therapy dogs (and a miniature horse) on one of the mornings of our camp. The children thoroughly enjoyed being with the pets. A few of our campers that I previously observed having a difficult time at camp started to seem more relaxed and even opened up participating more throughout the rest of camp. It was a great way to start the day! Ultimately, our campers learned that playing and spending time with their own pets at home was a way to reduce stress and anxiety.Gian Carla Santayana


About Giving Tuesday

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses, and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. This holiday inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smaller ways to charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world.


A lot can happen in a day. A homeless dog can find his second chance at happiness, abandoned kittens can be nursed back to health, and animals rescued from disaster or abuse can start a journey to safety. But none of it happens without you.

Our goal is to raise $5,000 in life-altering gifts today. Your donation of just $5 can make a huge difference in the lives of our smallest companions.

Please donate now.
