Upper Keys Humane Society Pets Now Seeking New Homes

Fort Lauderdale, FL – Hurricane Irma left the Humane Society of Broward County (HSBC) without power for three days.  Sadly the Upper Keys Humane Society located in Key Largo may not have power for weeks or possibly months.  Prior to the storm, staff from the shelter in Key Largo drove their 55 cats and five dogs, that had been in their adoption area, to the Humane Society of Broward County to ride out the storm safely.  Now that the hurricane has passed, the Key Largo staff drove back to their shelter and assessed the area.  While their building is still standing they felt it was in the best interest of the animals that they remain at the HSBC to find new homes.

Lebbil (Cat) and Nova (Dog) are looking for a new home. Can you open up your heart and home to them?

Adorable and sweet, that is the best way to describe Lebbil (ID 567503).  This handsome fellow is a 3 year young, long-haired fellow who is also a Hemmingway which means he has extra toes on his front feet.  Sadly the landlord said “no pets” so now Lebbil has to find another family to love…could it be you?  He gets along with other pets and likes kids 5 and up. 

After having a family for 10 years, Nova (ID 567577) now is in search of a new home.  This fellow is a 56 pound Labrador retriever mix who gets along with people of all ages and other pets.  Nova is described as being very calm and extremely loving.  He is a big cuddle bug who likes to play fetch.  Can you open up your heart and home to him?
