My husband and I have adopted two dogs from the Humane Society of Davie County and in both cases the experience was exceptional. It is obvious the animals are loved and well cared for and that potential adopters are well screened. The facility is clean and well maintained and the staff is friendly and helpful. I would recommend them to anyone who is considering adoption of a furry friend!

My name is Carrie DuPre and I am the marketing manager at the Humane Society of Davie County. I have seen dogs come in with haunting signs of prior mistreatment or abuse. They flinch at my touch and it becomes nearly impossible to take their photograph. BooBoo was one of those cases. She was absolutely terrified of people from past abuse. Luckily, a wonderful person gave BooBoo a second chance at happiness. With every week she spends in her forever home, she has grown and come out of her terrified shell. She cuddles and has begin to play and act like a puppy for the first time in her life.

My name is Gloria Wommack and I am the Managing Director of the HSDC. After my retirement as a top leader in the Fashion and Real Estate industry, I was asked if I would consider leading this wonderful team of caring individuals. It all began over lunch with the CEO, who was so excited about saving more cats and dogs in Davie County! I could not have chosen a more passionate and compassionate group to be a part of...I am truly honored to work with this team.

I am a volunteer Board member for HSDC. I am also the CEO for another nonprofit in the county so I know a bit about nonprofits and Boards of Directors. I can tell you that this is the most involved, most dedicated, hardest working, most passionate group of Board members I have ever seen! They are serious about the work and mission of HSDC. They are passionate about their own animals and this spills over into their work with animals they rescue. They have hired a wonderful, talented, smart business woman to manage the Adoption Center who also demonstrates a deep desire to help abandoned dogs and cats find good homes. The org is fiscally sound and finances are well managed. HSDC deserves support from anyone who really cares about the treatment of animals and wants to invest in an organization committed to this work.

I adore working with HSDC! I volunteered with the organization for almost 2 years before joining the Board. During my volunteering, I was able to get to know the animals, help socialize them, clean up for them, and perform any general duties HSDC needed.

I have made some great friends in other animal advocates at HSDC with whom I will have long-lasting relationships. I also was given an opportunity to foster a wonderful little kitty who I later adopted. She has become part of my family and I owe it all to the staff at HSDC for seeing my passion for animals and giving me an opportunity to step up in even greater ways.

HSDC is an amazing organization that strives to educate adults and children about animal welfare as well as reach out in the community to create adoption awareness and animal safety awareness. I love being part of this tremendous organization!

The Humane Society of Davie County works not only in our local community to save pet lives but also in the surrounding areas. We strive to improve education and awareness with our outreach and events. We host annual fundraisers including Cause for Paws and Paws in the Park that allow us to save hundreds of dogs and cats each year. These animals are rescued and placed in loving and safe forever homes. Serving on the Humane Society of Davie's board has allowed me to reach out to the community and give back. There are lots of ways to help, monetary donations, donating supplies, volunteering at the humane society and supporting us at events!

I am a volunteer and a board member at Davie County Humane Society. I spend many hours at the center and witness first-handedly the deep care and commitment to the welfare. Care and adoption of homeless animals. We strive hard to raise the necessary funds through fundraisers, adoption fairs, dpay & nueter clinics, etc. , but the need remains great. There is no greater joy for all of us at the society to experience happy, forever homes for our rescues and rejoice in the pictures that the new mom and dad's share with us.

Our handsome hound, Bryce, is an alum of HSDC. We are grateful every day for the work that HSDC does in rescuing cats and dogs and giving them a second chance at love and fun and devotion.
