Pet Adoption Event at North Pointe YMCA Family Center

Miami-Dade County Animal Services and the YMCA of Greater Miami will host a special pet adoption event to help bring shelter pets into loving homes and increase the number of lives saved in Miami-Dade County, on Friday, August 16th, from 4:00pm to 8:00pm, at the North Pointe YMCA Family Center, 7351 NW 186 Street, in Miami.

The event will celebrate the YMCA’s Back to School Back to Health bash, a free community event that aims to promote the County-wide adoption of kittens, cats, puppies, dogs, and raise awareness of the importance of pet vaccinations, sterilization, and microchip implantation.  All adoption fees will be half off.
