Meet Poncho, a 5-year-young Chihuahua who was recently rescued from a puppy mill in Clewiston, Florida. The ASPCA relocated over 100 animals to various shelters from this seizure and Poncho is one of two left at Humane Society of Broward County.
As HSBC's Cherie Wachter explains, and as you can see in the video above, the animals were living in deplorable conditions. Poncho's new owners will truly be giving him a second chance at life!
Because of where he came from, Poncho's new family should understand that he may have some health issues down the road that will require proper attention and care. He'll do best in a quiet household without kids, but other dogs are fine!
To adopt Poncho or any of the animals you see below, visit HSBC at 2070 Griffin Rd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312.
Beautiful Crystal can’t wait to meet you! This gal is a Siamese mix who's just over a year old. Crystal is playful, spirited and curious once she settles in to her new home.

If you like big dogs then Golden could be the perfect addition to your family. He's a five year young, 71 pound shepherd mix who was given up because his family moved to a smaller place and they had no room for him.

Your days will be brighter if you adopt Golden!
