Hurricane Irma

As we continue our recovery and cleanup efforts, please visit the Emergency website for the latest information on openings and closings in Miami-Dade County.

    Miami-Dade Animal Services has undertaken a no kill mission to help save the lives of ALL adoptable pets abandoned at the Pet Adoption and Protection Center. To help fulfill this mission, Animal Services uses its mobile pet adoption unit, named the HOPE Express, to bring our pets closer to the citizens of our Community. HOPE is an acronym for Helping Our Pets Every day. We are Helping Our Pets Every day, delivering them to new homes –with urgency, with movement, with direction and with hope.

    Animal Services is committed to making Miami-Dade County a no kill community. Our goal is to find life-long homes for pets in need and reunite lost pets with their owners. Some of our life saving programs and initiatives include: mobile pet adoption events, foster, transport and volunteer programs, rescue partnerships, pet retention programs, grant programs, educational programs, free and low-cost sterilization and vaccination services, and a trap, neuter and return program for community cats.
