Miami-Dade County Animal Services Presents Open Your Heart and Your Home, Pet Adoption Event

Miami-Dade County Animal Services Department invites you to celebrate Open Your Heart and Your Home Pet Adoption Event, from Saturday, February 9th to February 17th, 2013.  This festive adoption celebration of pets, life, loyalty, and above all, love, will be held at the Animal Services Shelter located at 7401 NW 74 Street, Miami, FL 33166.  The shelter opens 7 days a week; hours of operation vary weekdays and weekends. 

Open Your Heart and Your Home Pet Adoption Celebration will give pet lovers the opportunity to adopt dogs and cats who are in need of a loving home for life. You will find a lot more than a pet; you will find true unconditional love and loyalty. 

Attendance is free and open to the public.

Each year, Animal Services receives over 30,000 pets. The goal of this event, as with any event in which the Department participates, is to increase pet adoptions and community awareness and involvement with the shelter.  For more information, visit or call 3-1-1.
