The Tri County Humane Society is a no-kill organization founded in July 2001 after taking over the Lullis Ritter Animal Shelter. They are dedicated to stop the killing over 45,000 unwanted pets in Broward County, 65,000 in Miami-Dade County, and 60,000 in Palm Beach County each year. With this goal in mind the Tri County Humane Society will not release an animal to another organization that has a policy of euthanasia. In addition, they only place animals with qualified prospective owners. Over that past year over 3,200 pups, cats, dogs and kittens that were on death row ready to be euthanized where rescued by this Humane Society. Since Tri County took over the Lullis Ritter Animal they have had 2121 adoptions.
