Where The Money Goes...
The Humane Society of Broward County relies on the generosity of our community and companies to fund our operations and programs budget. We do not get funding from the government, United Way or any other national or local organizations with similar names. Income sources are: adoption fees; services such as dog obedience, vaccination clinics, spay/neuter programs; pet boutique sales; fundraising events; grants; general donations and from those people who leave the shelter in their will. Every dollar is carefully spent to help the unwanted animals.

PetSet is a group of young professionals, ages 21-45, who enjoy attending social gatherings to raise funds for a great cause - the animals! For more than 14 years now PetSetters have raised over $1.2 million and have had a direct impact on the lives of the thousands of homeless pets that come to the HSBC each year.

The goal of PetSet is to raise funds, create awareness about responsible pet ownership and educate others about compassion and caring towards all animals.

PetSet membership dues start at $25 for a full year and include discounts to the monthly socials and at the HSBC's Pet Boutique.
