A Plea, and an Offer from Broward County

The plea:  Broward County's Animal Care and Regulation Division needs foster parents for scores of kittens showing up at the shelters. Kittens may require bottle feeding throughout the day and need
lots of cuddling to help them survive.   If you think you could be a foster parent so that a kitten can
grow old enough to be adopted, please contact Linda Hall at 954-359-1321.

The offer: A county low-cost spay/neuter program offers $10 sterilization of cats and dogs for low-to-moderate income Broward County residents. Eligibility is based on the number of people in the household and yearly household income compared to the Broward County median income. For example, a household of four with a yearly income of $60,200 would qualify for the program.

   Pet owners can choose from over 20 veterinary clinics and nonprofit organizations to perform the surgery. The aim is to  reduce the number of unwanted cats and dogs born, and later  euthaanized. Download an application from the website in English or  Spanish, call the program coordinator at 954-359-1318, or e-mail tweihrauch@broward.org.
