Miami-Dade County Animal Services offers special spring savings with waived adoption fees for dogs over 35 pounds from March 13, 2014 through April 30, 2014

A longer day is better when you share it with a larger lovable dog


(Miami, March 12, 2014) –Miami-Dade County Animal Services is waiving adoption fees for large dogs over 35 lbs., from March 13, 2014, through April 30, 2014. All large, lovable dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and ready to go to a forever home. Adopters will be responsible for a $27 license fee.

“Daylight savings time is here and longer days mean more opportunities to get outdoors and exercise. A big dog makes a great training partner to exercise with,” said Alex Muñoz, Director of Miami-Dade County Animal Services.
Adoption fees for dogs over 35 lbs. will also be waived during this period at all off-site pet adoption events hosted by Miami-Dade County Animal Services.
