Inside South Florida recently featured Cherie Wachter from the Humane Society of Broward County, who introduced viewers to an eight-week-old puppy named Spot. Cherie focused on promoting pet adoption and educating the public on the importance of spaying and neutering pets.

Spot, a small puppy weighing about five pounds, is part of a litter of six. At eight weeks old, she is at the ideal age for adoption, having already received her first set of vaccinations. Cherie Wachter emphasized that the Humane Society ensures all puppies and kittens are spayed or neutered before they are adopted to prevent accidental litters. The organization has been performing pediatric spaying and neutering for over 30 years, establishing their vets as experts in the procedure.

Spaying and neutering pets is crucial for their health, preventing diseases such as certain cancers in female dogs. It also stops unspayed female dogs from attracting male dogs from blocks away and reduces the risk of uterine infections. Cherie highlighted that these procedures are vital for dogs, cats, and even bunny rabbits.

Spot and her siblings—creatively named Pip, Dot, and others—are ready for adoption. While Spot’s exact breed mix is unknown, Cherie estimates she will grow to about 30 or 40 pounds.

For those interested in adopting Spot or one of her siblings, the process is straightforward. Potential adopters are encouraged to visit the Humane Society of Broward County’s website at to complete a pre-adoption application. The shelter is open every day from 11 a.m., and families are encouraged to visit together to ensure the chosen pet is a good fit for everyone.

Cherie concluded by reminding viewers that adopting a pet is a family affair, and it’s important to ensure all family members are happy with the new addition. Spot and her littermates are ready to find their forever homes and bring joy to their new families.
