Service Animals

  • Service dogs are usually given by nonprofit organizations that specialize in the training and placing of service dogs to individuals with disabilities. There is no County agency that provides this type of service. There are many organizations in the Miami-Dade County area; you may find this information through the Yellow Pages under Service Dogs or on the web.

The federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) defines a service animal as any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with disability. If they meet this definition, animals are considered service animals under the ADA regardless of whether they have been licensed or certified by a state or local government

The (ADA) guarantees that those who have physical and mental disabilities must have access to public and private buildings and spaces.

NOTE: Tags and licenses for service dogs are free and can be picked up at:

Miami-Dade Animal Services
3599 NW 79 Ave.
Doral, FL 33122
