Adopt a pet at Broward shelter with no fees

Wonderful pets are available for adoption from the Broward animal shelter in Fort Lauderdale, usually with no fees required. 

Broward County is waiving adoption fees for dogs and cats. A $20 deposit is required for dog weighing less than 25 pounds.

If adding a fluffy friend to your family is of interest, adoptable pets are featured online, or in person at the shelter, which is at 2400 SW 42nd St. Fort Lauderdale 33312.
