Humane Society of Broward County to host annual ‘Walk for the Animals’ event in Fort Lauderdale

BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. – The Humane Society of Broward County announced Saturday that they are hosting the annual event “Walk for the Animals” event in Fort Lauderdale.

The event will take place on Mar 4. at 8 a.m. at the Las Olas Intracoastal Promenade Park at 80 Las Olas Circle.

The walk for the animals is the organization’s largest fundraiser. Event organizers are hoping to raise $400,000 at the event.

The walk is 1.25 miles long along A1A and will feature booths, live entertainment and more.

The Humane Society of Broward County also continued their search Saturday on finding a loving, permanent home for pets.

Cherie Wachter, of the Broward County Humane Society, brought out 6-year-old Juno.

Juno is part shepherd mix, active and very smart for anyone looking for a dog that doesn’t need to be trained.

According to Wachter, Juno is great with kids and will chase smaller animals at times like the iguanas hanging out in backyards.

“Juno was surrendered by his family who said they were a little too much for them but we know there’s a home out there for him,” said Wachter.

Wacher also brought out two senior cats named Zero and Fred.

Wachter said they are 10 and 12 years old and are brothers looking to stay together because they have been together their entire lives.
