Adoption Policy

To adopt your new best friend, please come to our facility and meet your pet in person. All adoptions are on a first come, first serve basis.

Please note: Many of the small dogs and kittens listed may already be adopted due to high demand.

If you are interested in adopting a cat or kitten, we invite you to visit any Pet Supermarket store located in Broward County. Many of our felines are transferred to the stores for adoption.
