Miami-Dade Animal Services is an open-admission shelter meaning that no homeless animal is turned away. Our goal is to reunite lost pets with their owners and when that is not possible, find a new home for them, provided that they are healthy and not aggressive.
Animal Services has a myriad of responsibilities, including the enforcement of Chapter 5 of the Code of Miami-Dade County. The code addresses a number of regulations, including cruelty and special breed issues; but the Department also specifically serves the population of homeless animals in Miami-Dade County.
