BROWARD COUNTY - The Broward County Animal Care and Adoption Division has announced on Thursday that it has been awarded a $15,000 donation from the Animal Rescue Fund that will help to support the Division’s Foster Care program.  The funds will be used for foster food and supplies, as well as medical and clinical needs.

Animal Care receives hundreds of foster pets each year that require special care. Some of the dogs and cats have sustained injuries or are ill. Others are too young to be placed right into adoption. Through the Foster Care Program, Foster Parents can provide the extra care the pets require until they are old enough or well enough to be adopted. 

The Animal Rescue Fund is a Broward-based organization dedicated to the proper care and treatment of all animals to help create a healthier and kinder community for humans and animals.

“We are very thankful to the Animal Rescue Fund for their generosity and support of our efforts,” said Lauralei Combs, Director, Broward County Animal Care and Adoption Division.  “I believe our vision of a community in which healthy and adoptable animals aren’t euthanized will become a reality. Support from partners like the Animal Rescue Fund allows us to get there sooner.”   

Residents who cannot foster are asked to make a donation at http://theanimalrescuefund.org.  The donation will be matched by the Animal Rescue Fund to help provide veterinary food and care to pets throughout the community.  In addition, residents can donate quality, gently used items to the organization’s Boomerangs Thrift Store.  Boomerangs is located at 2365 Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors.  Proceeds from the sale of items also help to fund additional grants.
