Senior Scholarship Program
The Humane Society of Broward County participates in a very unique adoption program. The Humane Society will be able to waive part of the adoption fee for those individuals who are 60+ years of age and are looking to adopt a pet that qualifies for the program. Potential adopters must still meet all the HSBC adoption criteria.
This program will connect senior citizens in need with animals who need love. Clinical evidence indicates that pets help people stay healthy. People with pets have lower blood pressure, fewer heart attacks and less illness. They live longer and happier lives. There are a limited number of adoption scholarships available. If you could benefit from this program or know someone who may, please visit our shelter. We’re sure you’ll find a friend for life.
This program is made possible by the Pets For the Elderly Foundation. For more information about PFE or to find a participating shelter in your area please visit petsfortheelderly.org.
