Adoption Process

Here’s where it happens. Get ready to fall in love! Don’t worry — if you swoon, we’ll catch you. HSBC makes adoption as easy and affordable as possible so you can get on with the joy of bringing your new furry family member home.

We ask that you complete a Pre-Adoption Application if you do not have one on file within the past year or if you have recently moved. Once you have completed and submitted the online application, please stop by the shelter, we open every day at 11am and you do not need an appointment. If you have any questions, please call 954-989-3977 x6.

If you live in the state of Florida, please complete the pre-adoption application here and then come in for a visit.

To adopt from outside the state of Florida, please apply here and then call 954-989-3977 x6.

We are sorry, but we cannot adopt outside the continental US and Canada.

Please consider these factors before adopting a pet. Landlord Approval, other household members, costs, other pets, time commitment, and supplies needed. Click here to learn more.

To adopt a friend for life, the Humane Society of Broward County requires you to pay fees based on the age and number of animals you are adopting. These fees can also include additional services such as spaying, neutering, flea/tick treatment, vaccinations, and wellness checks.  Click here to learn more.

If you are thinking of adding a loving and loyal canine or feline companion to your family, you will want to consider many factors in selecting the type of animal which best suits your lifestyle and fits your needs. Click here to learn more.

Your new pet may have been abandoned or surrendered by a previous family.  The pet may be going home to a new, unfamiliar place with strangers. Kind of scary if you think about it! Being gentle, considerate, kind and patient will help ease your friend into his new family. Click here to learn more.
