The HOPE Express

About the HOPE Express
The 28 feet by 8 feet, air-conditioned HOPE Express features 24 animal compartments with removable dividers that comfortably expand to 56 compartments. Awnings on both sides allow easy viewing of pets through a plexiglass wall. The colorful trailer, made possible in part by a grant from the ASPCA®, will travel throughout Miami-Dade County to hold pet adoption events. Additionally, it will serve to transport pets to out-of-state partner organizations. Community pet adoption events and pet relocation and transport programs are an integral part of Animal Services' efforts to make Miami-Dade County a no kill community.

View our ASD events calendar for upcoming dates and locations where you can find The HOPE Express in your neighborhood.

The colorful HOPE Express can be spotted traveling across Miami-Dade
County to unite future pet owners with their soon-to-be beloved pets.
