Animal Care

Community Cat Management Programs

Broward County is home to thousands of Community Cats — unowned cats that live outdoors.

Some of these cats are part of a cat colony and are cared for by a Colony Caregiver. Other cats simply roam freely throughout neighborhoods and communities.

In 2015, the Broward County Chapter 4 Animal Care Ordinance was amended to allow for Community Cat Management Programs. The goal is to reduce the overpopulation of Community Cats within Broward County through two sterilization programs:

  • Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR)
  • Return to Field (RTF)

Broward County Pet Rabies Clinics

Scheduled clinics are held on Saturdays from 9 AM to 2 PM.  You must be a Broward County resident to attend.  No appointment is necessary and customers are taken on a first-come, first-served basis.  All dogs must be on leashes and all cats must be in carriers.

Cost for a one-year rabies vaccination and Broward County Rabies Registration Tag is:

  • $25 if your pet is spayed/neutered
  • $35 if your pet is NOT spayed/neutered

Microchips, with FREE registration, are also available to all pet owners for $15.
