If you are looking for ways to help animals in need, then here is your opportunity: The Humane Society of Broward County needs volunteers to help, especially with the dogs.

Current openings include animal care for dogs – cleaning and feeding, dog walking, and dog pal – spending quiet time with the dogs.

Other openings available are clinic assistant – prepare surgery packs, education outreach, foster care for pets too young for adoption or who need to recuperate from a medical procedure, adoption ambassador – take an adult dog or cat into your home and help them find their forever home, Kennel Guides and Customer Service Assistant – assist with adoptions and sending animals home.

Parkland residents who would like to volunteer must be 18 years of age and complete a criminal background check.  Orientations are held several times a month.  To learn more, call Linda Sanders at 954-266-6814 or visit and go to the “Get Involved” tab.

The shelter is located at 2070 Griffin Road, a block west of I-95 and is open seven days a week.
