FLL Overflows With Cats and Dogs Hoping For a New Home

The animals were flown from Puerto Rico to Fort Lauderdale as part of "Operation Breathing Room" — an effort by the Humane Society to free up overcrowded shelters throughout Puerto Rico. 

The animals are being will be taken to various animal welfare organizations across the United States, including the Humane Society of Broward County.
