It's a Free-Fur-Fall

A cooler breeze signals fall in South Florida, which is a good time to consider adopting a warm and fuzzy furry companion. To make it easier for those ready to adopt, Miami-Dade Animal Services is celebrating the season with a Free-Fur-Fall promotion through November 30.

It's Hip to Chip

Not everyone speaks "woof" and "meow". Give your pet the voice they don't have. A pet identification microchip implant is available at Animal Services.
