Pet Receiving Closed Saturday, April 6th, 2013

Miami-Dade County Animal Services will be temporarily closing pet receiving on Saturday, April 6th, 2013.   We regret any inconvenience this may cause and apologize for the brief suspension of services.  Regular services will resume Sunday, April 7th.

We thank you for your understanding and invite you to attend the Mega Pet Adoption Event on Saturday, April 6th, at Tropical Park, 7900 Bird Road Miami.

Each year, Miami-Dade County Animal Services receives over 30,000 pets. Our mission is to save the lives of these pets by reuniting them with their owners, finding new loving and permanent homes, foster parents, or rescue organizations.  The goal of every 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.
