If you want to see how the Wild Wild West looked back in the day, come to the breezy beach town of Davie, Fl where this style of architecture has been so wonderfully preserved. There are also a ton of dog-friendly places to go if you’re bringing Rover with you on vacation. You might want to check out the Humane Society of Broward County, an inspiring shelter where lost, abandoned dogs find new hope. Homeless dogs are a real issue in the Everglades, so coming to this shelter means a second chance and the prospect of a forever home.
The shelter is a modern, air-conditioned facility with enough space to hold more than 300 cats and dogs at a time. It’s also incredibly motivated, with a marketing plan to be envied by large corporations. As a non-profit shelter, they rely on donations and ideas to keep the doors open, so amazing programs are in place to put money into the shelter and teach little tots and grown-ups alike how to look after and love a dog.
Their ingenious, birthday party concept is a fun way for anyone to share their special day with pets at the shelter. Kids get to make dog treats for the shelter pups, play doggie inspired games plus spend quality time with canine friends. All credit is due to the innovative think tank behind the scenes that inspire people to foster a cat for the office, host an event, volunteer or buy stylish products at their “pop up” shelter shop. Most dogs might consider they landed on their paws when taken to this impressive shelter, as their chances of being re-homed are pawsitively good! Look out for their PAWS Gala, Walk for the Animals - upcoming events and more on their website.
