Miami-Dade County

About Our Shelter:

Animal Services is primarily charged with the responsibility of enforcing Chapter 5 of the Code of Miami-Dade County, as well as Florida Statute 828, which deals primarily with animal cruelty issues. Unlike private shelters that have limitations on the number of pets they accept, we accept all animals, at Animal Services. None are turned away, and each year, the shelter impounds more than 34,000 dogs and cats. Our goal is to reunite lost pets with their owners and find life long homes for as many animals as possible and to provide proper care for them while theyĺre at the shelter.

How to Adopt
You can search for a pet online www.miamidade.gov/animals or go to the shelter.

There is no guarantee that the pet you have identified online will still be available when you arrive at the shelter. If the pet you wanted is no longer available, please consider adopting another animal in our shelter. Each day there are over 350 loveable dogs and cats looking for a good home.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
