Finding Forever Homes: A Conversation with the Humane Society of Broward

Posted at 6:15 PM, Apr 26, 2024

In a heartwarming interview with Cherie Wachter from the Humane Society of Broward, the importance of animal adoption and responsible pet ownership took center stage. Joined by the adorable Opal, Cherie shed light on the crucial role the Humane Society plays in caring for animals in need and connecting them with loving families.

The Humane Society of Broward is a nonprofit organization located on Griffin Road, dedicated to the welfare of animals. Cherie, the Vice President of Marketing, shared her journey from volunteer to employee, highlighting the profound impact volunteering can have on one's life.

When asked about her favorite part of the job, Cherie expressed her joy in making a difference every day, particularly in seeing animals find their forever homes. Opal, a delightful 10-week-old puppy, stole the spotlight as an example of the many adorable pets available for adoption at the Humane Society.

While Opal charmed with her puppy antics, Cherie emphasized the commitment required in raising a puppy and urged prospective pet parents to consider the responsibilities involved. She encouraged potential adopters to visit the Humane Society's website and fill out a pre-adoption application, emphasizing that adoptions are based on a first-come, first-served basis.

In addition to puppies like Opal, Cherie highlighted the numerous adult pets awaiting adoption, dispelling the misconception that they are less capable of forming bonds with their new families. With love and care, adult pets can be equally grateful and loyal companions.
