Broward County residents will get a chance to see a brand new home for animals seeking adoption in the area – while offering people a sweet deal to bring home a new pet.
The new shelter is located at 2400 Southwest 42nd street in Fort Lauderdale, across the street from the parking lot of Fort Lauderdale / Hollywood International Airport.
Today, as part of the grand opening, all adoption fees will be waived plus adopters will receive specials on pet food – in a mission to encourage you at home to adopt and not shop for a new addition, such as what NBC 6 did this summer with our Clear the Shelters initiative.
The new center boasts twice the size of the former shelter with space to care for up to 500 dogs and cats. Upgraded features include air conditioned kennels, meet and greet adoption rooms as well as pet interaction areas and more
