Sponsor Highlight

The HSBC is an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) that does not receive any government funding or financial support from local or national organizations with similar names. However, through sponsor support, private donations, special events (like our Walk for the Animals), adoption fees, and other fundraising efforts, we are able to care for thousands of homeless animals throughout Broward County.

Today we would like to highlight one of our Walk for the Animals Sponsors, Trupanion, who helps support our Walk and achieve our mission.

The Trupanion policy offers one simple accident and illness medical insurance plan for dogs and cats. With a passion for pets and a policy built by veterinarians, Trupanion helps pet owners provide their beloved dogs and cats the best veterinary care possible, while reducing the worry about the cost of that care.

We pride ourselves on partnering with amazing organizations like the Humane Society of Broward County, and supporting the great work they do. We know how life-changing it can be when a pet enters your life, especially through adoption, and we want to do all we can to continue championing HSBC’s commitment to caring for pets. We all want the best for pets, that’s why we’re all better when we work (and walk) together.

Trupanion is a registered trademark owned by Trupanion, Inc. Underwritten in Canada by Omega General Insurance Company and in the United States by American Pet Insurance Company, 6100-4th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98108. Please visit to review all available pet health insurance products.

About Our Walk for the Animals

For over two decades, Walk for the Animals has served as the Humane Society of Broward County’s largest annual fundraiser. In 2016, the Walk had over 5,000 people and 2,500 dogs participate and helped to raise a net total of over $525,000 to benefit the animals at the HSBC, as well as the programs and services offered in the community.

Now in its 27th year, the Walk has become a staple in the Fort Lauderdale community. The Leisurely 1.25 mile walk brings together thousands of animal lovers from all over Broward County, all with one goal in mind: to save the homeless animals of South Florida.
