How We Got Our Name
Aska was a nurse and an incredible young woman at our hospital who was loved by all and believed that all life was precious. Sadly, she passed away from cancer at age 32. In her honor, we built this non-profit animal rescue welfare foundation so we could save animals slated for euthanasia at local shelters, provide them with quality medical care, and help them find loving families.
How It Works
Our veterinarians all volunteer their time for this worthy cause, and all proceeds donated go directly to the medical care of the animals. You can donate online or make a contribution in person at our hospital.
Our Work So Far
Central Broward Animal Hospital and the Aska Animal Rescue Foundation have rescued hundreds of animals, cared for them, and found them forever homes. We are working towards expanding our reach so that we can save more of these precious creatures. The foundation works hard every day caring for abandoned pets and giving them the second chance they so rightly deserve. Yet, to do more and save more lives, we need your help. Please consider making a donation today to support this cause and save more precious lives.

The Adoption Process
In order to ensure our adoptable pets go to good, loving homes, we do require that you complete an application. This helps us determine if you are eligible for our adoption program. When you come to visit the pet you are interested in adopting, we can give you the form to fill out. Please return the form to us in person, or scan it to our email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Things to Consider Before Adopting a Pet
Before you commit to being a pet parent, consider the following questions to ensure you’re able to give the pet the home they truly deserve:
Cats and dogs need daily attention and love, just like humans. It can be time-consuming to keep a pet clean, well-fed, healthy, and exercised. Are you and your family ready for this commitment?
If you live in an apartment or rental, it might be necessary to get your landlord’s approval before you bring a pet home. Sometimes, additional security deposits may be necessary in order for you to own a pet in a rental.
Space is important from the biggest to the smallest pets. An indoor cat will need room for a litter box, as well as places to roam, jump, and climb safely in order for them to get the exercise they need to stay healthy. Many dogs need a yard to run around outside and let off steam. If you don’t have a yard, keep in mind that your dog may need more walks or trips to the dog park in order to get the exercise they need.
Pet ownership is not cheap. It can be costly to add your pet’s food, supplies, vet visits, parasite prevention, licenses, and more to your monthly bills. When you travel, you’ll need to consider the costs of a pet sitter or a boarding facility. Before you decide to add a new pet to your family, sit down and make up a budget for their estimated costs to inform your decision.
A new pet can bring such joy to your home, but they also bring a lot of work. Be aware that it can take several months for them to fully adjust to their new home. Accidents will happen. Do you have the patience to handle these with grace and kindness?
