Humane Society of Broward County needs support amid increased demand for pets during pandemic
DANIA BEACH, Fla. – The coronavirus pandemic has decreased the supply of dogs and cats, and this is hurting the Humane Society of Broward County. Angela Caballero said she is spending more time at home now, so she has more time for a pet. The shelter has had to reach out to other shelters in rural areas, but even that hasn’t been enough. There are 80 spots for dogs at the Humane Society’s shelter at 2070 Griffin Rd., in Dania Beach, but only 17 were occupied on Friday afternoon. AdThe Humane Society of Broward, a private, non-profit organization that was founded in 1944, has an annual budget of about $7 million.
