Miami-Dade County Animal Services Pet Wish List
Each year, over 27,000 animals are abandoned at Animal Services. We work tirelessly to reunite our shelter pets with their owners, find them new homes and work with over 50 rescue groups and partners who help us save as many animals as possible.
While they are with us at Animal Services, we try to make pets as comfortable as possible. Your financial contributions will help us continue to do that.
If you would like to donate materials to shelter dogs and cats, you can drop off donations at Miami-Dade County Animal Services.
