Humane Society of Broward County hoping to find permanent homes for furry friends

BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. – The Humane Society of Broward County its continuing its search to find loving, permanent homes for pets.

Cherie Wachter, of the Broward County Humane Society, brought out 2-year-old Harlow, 4-year-old Heywood and 3-year-old Rhianna.

Wachter believes Heywood and Harlow are father and daughter. They love to play with tennis balls and get along well with other dogs.

She said both Harlow and Heywood could be mixed with yellow lab and came from a partner shelter.

Wachter advised could-be owners to have a lot of tennis balls if interested in either dog. She also said that a DNA test on both dogs is recommended.

The Humane Society also informed viewers of a 2-year-old cat named Petunia.

Wachter says Petunia is looking for a quiet home with a cat owner that is going to give her time to adjust to her surroundings.

She said thanks to one of their customers and cat lovers, Petunia’s adoption fee has been sponsored.
