Save an Animal’s Life by Adopting a Pet This Thanksgiving Weekend

By: Sharon Aron Baron

Coral Springs residents: avoid the mall crowds this “Black Friday” and consider adding a furry friend to your family instead. 

The Humane Society of Broward County and Broward County Animal Care will be hosting adoption events and hopes residents consider adopting a homeless pet – one who wants to spend this holiday and many more with you.

Humane Society of Broward County

On Friday, November 23, the HSBC will be offering “Cuddle Busters” all day long where the adoption fee will be waived for select pets.  In addition, the adoption fee will be half price for all pets one year of age and older. 

Regular adoption fees for cats one year and older is $30 and dogs one year and older is $100.  Whether you’re looking for big or small, purebred or a unique mixed breed…there is always love for sale at the Humane Society of Broward County.

When you adopt from the Humane Society of Broward County all pets are spayed or neutered before going home.  In addition they receive preliminary vaccinations, a microchip, heart worm test for dogs over seven months, feline leukemia test for cats, a limited 10 day health care plan courtesy of VCA Animal Hospitals, a bag of Purina ONE food, a 30 day trial membership in Trupanion pet insurance (restrictions apply) and more. 

For more information call them at 954-989-3977 ext 6. The HSBC is located at 2070 Griffin Road, just a block west of I-95 and opens daily at 10:30 a.m.  To see who needs a home visit

Broward County Animal Care

Broward County Animal Care will be holding a special “Doorbuster Deal” days on Saturday, November 24 and Sunday, November 25.
