There are almost no words for the amount of good this organization does for animals in Broward County, FL. They are assisting in saving animals in all categories, including ground breaking initiatives in saving animals in categories that would previously be an automatic death sentence (ex. Feline Leukopenia). Proud to support an organization that does this much good. Thank you!

Friends of Broward County Animal Care & Adoption is one of the most helpful, responsible and caring organizations I have come across. The updates are immediate, the donations are very well documented and dispersed. Donors always know where their money is going, and it's always to the most urgent. If the animal receives more donations than are needed (through adoption, rescue, or passed), donors are contacted about what they would like done with their donations. I love this organization, and Roz is just amazing. What she has done, and continues to do, has saved the lives of so, so many pets. Her dedication is unending and awe inspiring.

This is a wonderful organization that supports the efforts of Broward County Animal Care and helps the animals in their care get adopted. They also help any animals that need veterinary care, through donations. There is even a program to assist with vet care for families who may not be able to afford such care. This helps reduce the number of animals surrendered and keeps families together. They are all about supporting the no-kill initiative that our new, wonderful director of BCAC has started. They're doing an excellent job as the numbers will show. The lady who manages this web page works tirelessly to get these animals the exposure they need to find that forever home. She also works diligently with rescues and fosters, to assist in more complicated cases, like new moms and orphaned kittens. The Friends of Broward County Animal Care are working hard to make this a no kill county and because of these efforts, I believe we will get there... and sooner than we think! In closing, I urge you to support this wonderful organization. They are really there for the animals, all of the animals. Look for them on Amazon Smile and donate every time you shop!

This organization is extremely pro-active and has saved hundreds of animal lives. They have provided thousands of dollars to rescues for animals that otherwise would have been euthanized as well as providing funds to Broward Animal Care for the benefit of the animals. It's very impressive that one organization can accomplish so much.

Their name says it’s all; they truly are friends to the animals at the Broward County shelter. Their work to help animals get out alive by sponsoring heart worm treatment, supporting kitten season with fosters and donations and donating preventive medications to help generate more adoptions makes them a true friend of Broward County homeless animals. Thank you for your continued work.

This organization has created miracles for the animals at the Broward County Animal Care and Adoption facility. Every day is a new fundraiser for an Amina's in need or one with less chance of making it out alive unless a rescue steps up for it.
Everyday they are photographing the animals to get them on facebook or in the public's eye. They work together as a team with only one purpose - to find good homes for all the shelter animals.

The organization is fantastic! I became Facebook friends with them only a few months ago - I am so impressed with how quickly they can help get animals in critical situations out of the shelter and either adopted or into a rescue. They have been such an inspiration to me - so much so that I have been getting more involved with the rescue efforts of these wonderful dogs and cats!

This is the only non profit dedicated to help and support Broward County Animal Care in Fort Lauderdale Fl.
Friends of Broward Animal Care goes above and beyond- they provide much needed funds to the shelter, and also assist animal foster parents with a 20 dollar gift card to help defray costs of fostering. They have a very active Facebook page, that alerts the public about which animals are last call (for euthanasia ), fostering, and rescue. They do more than just give money to the shelter, they are very hands on with what they do, and have saved hundreds of animals from death. They care. They promote shelter events, adoptions, classes, rabies clinics- a valuable public service. This nonprofit does so much, without fanfare. BCAC and the animals are lucky to have them!

Friends of Broward County Animal Care & Adoption is a wonderful organization! Roz is instrumental in leading the charge to save dog/cats in danger of euthanization at Broward Animal Care and Adoption.

This organization is such a blessing to the animals of Broward County. Roz does an amazing job of raising funds to pull urgent and injured animals from high risk shelters. I have personally seen her assist dozens and dozens of animals but I'm sure the real number is many times that. Friends of Broward Animal Care is an organization you'll feel great supporting. They're making a real difference in animals' lives.

Roz does such an outstanding job of telling the stories of so many abandoned and abused animals and raising needed funds for each one. And if one of these little guys has excess funds raised, or if the very worst happens and they don't make it, the funds are allocated to a different animal in need. I also appreciate the updates on these animals, it is so gratifying to see freedom pictures & hearing that they have found their furever home. I am very impressed with both Roz & the FRIENDS OF Broward County Animal Care.

One of the best organizations to ensure the homeless animals get the help needed. They have become a big influence on getting the Urgents out of the shelter and without their help, the animals would have no home. I recommend and support Friends of Broward County Animal Care & Adoption. The ones to follow and the ones who care for our pets in need.

Your donation make an impact that you can see immediately! The money used to buy dog and cat beds has been well spent and a great investment in keeping all of the pets who end up there more comfortable for their stay. They've done so much in such a short period of time - I'd definitely recommend everyone giving to this organization. Roz and the volunteers are good stewards and are so dedicated. I used to volunteer at the shelter before I moved away and I can just tell you that things have changed for the better there! I encourage people to visit the shelter and volunteer (dog walkers, cat cuddlers and volunteer photographers are really needed right now)! Reach out to Roz and Katia and they can put you in touch with the right people.

Thanks to Roz, hundreds of Broward County cats and dogs have been saved from euthanasia at the shelter. This is one of the few charities where I am confident that 98% of my donations go directly to help these animals, either for medical care or for supporting the organization that rescues the animal. Until Broward County becomes a No Kill community this charity fills a much needed role in protecting our homeless pets. Viva la Friends of Broward County Animal Care & Adoption! Sincerely, Grace Johns

Thanks to this group many lives have been saved including my dog's, Katie Sue. She had a horrible case of mange and knowing her chances at the shelter she was fostered by one of the volunteers and brought back to health before she came to me to continue her treatment.
I will always be thankful for my loving companion. Life is better with her next to me

Roz has done a wonderful job getting this support organization started in her "spare" time. A lot of good has been done for homeless animals in Broward County.

Her efforts are a big part of the effort to make Broward County Animal Care and Adoption a no-kill shelter as much as humanly possible.

My organization, Citizens FOR Pets in Condos, officially endorses these efforts.
