We are honored to have the trust of such a well-respected animal welfare organization - the Humane Society of Broward County!
In February the Humane Society of Broward County began partnering with Giving Bark™ as the second participating non-profit in the program.
The Humane Society of Broward County is an open admission shelter located in southern Florida, land of the palm trees. When not oohing and aahing over new adoption-ready animals on the adoption floor, the staff at the shelter are busy placing nearly 7,300 animals a year. That’s a lot! Besides helping the animals in their care and placing them into homes, the shelter also performs important services for the community such as low cost spays, neuters, vaccines, and chip (microchip).
While this alone is enough to keep the shelter busy and on its toes, they don’t stop there. The shelter also makes a point to engage the community and raise awareness by hosting 54 educational presentations and programs a year, offering camps, hosting birthday and PJ parties for the kids. For the adults they offer Yappy Hour Parties and community Pawsitive Service Days for employers, and if the office needs a break, we offer Snuggle Deliveries going straight to the office!
Not only does this non-profit help animals in need, they also support their community as they heal from the recent school shooting in Broward County, Florida on February 14th,2018. The Humane Society of Broward County’s Animal Assisted Therapy program has been there for them since the tragedy. The shelter has made it their goal to support the community during the healing process by having Animal Assisted Therapy Teams at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. Not confined to helping only in Parkland, the Humane Society is determined to find a way to help anyone who needs them through the use of Animal Assisted Therapy. Their Animal Assisted Therapy Teams also visits nursing homes, hospitals, Schools and Libraries helping everyone from babies to Seniors.
