Dotting the east coast of Florida, Hollywood is a town drenched in the imagery of sun-soaked beaches, rolling waves, and waterfront views. It's also notable for it's growing pet-welcoming atmosphere. Though the town itself is not primarily the most dog-friendly city in the entire state, it, and it's neighboring cities are quickly becoming destination spots for families seeking pet-friendliness.
As the demand for doggy-vacationing grows, Hollywood has increased its pup-friendly restaurants, shops, bars, and even its amount of doggo shelters and rescues in the area.
The biggest, most well-known shelter in the area is the Broward County Humane Society. Servicing over 7,000 animals in just 2016 alone, this shelter is over 33,000 square feet and has the ability to house over 300 animals at a time. The Humane Society of Broward County is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that provides "shelter, aid and responsible adoptions to animals entrusted to our care, and educates the community about respect and kindness to all animals," according to their site.
Another lesser-known, but also relevant organization in Hollywood Florida is the Death Row Dog Rescue, an organization focused on saving animals that are due to be euthanized. The goal of this organization is to save those animals who are on death row and find them loving, caring homes, giving them a second chance at life.
A third organization that services the Hollywood area is Top Paw Rescue, Inc., a non-profit that has been open since 2009. This organization is dedicated to providing rescue, rehab, and loving homes for pets without them.
