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, Safari Ltd., who helps support our Walk and achieve our mission.

Walk for the Animals: Safari, Ltd.

Safari Ltd is an American owned and family operated manufacturer and worldwide distributor of Toys that Teach. These authentic, hand-painted figurines have been inspiring children around the globe for three generations.

“Our mission is to teach children the importance of nature and its conservation through the joy of play.”


Weekly Walk “To Do”

$20.17 Contest Extended

Last week, in honor of the New Year, we announced another fun fundraising contest. While we had planned to announce the winners in today’s blog post, we just received 4 tickets to Mutts Gone Nuts! (a dog-tastic show at the Broward Center), which would make for an even better prize!

Walk Update Wednesday: Mutts Gone Nuts

From now until next Wednesday, January 11, 2017, just ask your friends to make a $20.17 donation to your Walk page, and we’ll track the entries from there. The winner will be announced in next week’s Walk Update Wednesday blog post, as well as directly via email.

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.
