- As Animal Services adapts to the challenges of COVID-19, we are now introducing virtual meet-and-greets with our adoptable pets. We want to make adopting a pet from Miami-Dade Animal Services both easy and safe for those residents who are choosing to practice social distancing at home.
Here's how virtual meet-and-greets with adoptable pets work:
- The adopter may start their search for a dog or cat by visiting petharbor.com to see all the pets currently at the shelter or with a foster family.
- If the pet is not currently at the shelter, but is staying in the home of a foster family, this pet may still be available for adoption. Please email the Miami-Dade Animal Services Foster Office at [email protected] with the pet's name and ID number so that the foster office can check on the pet's availability and help you begin the adoption process.
- Once the adopter has identified the pet they are interested in, they may email [email protected] with the subject line "virtual adoption" and the name and ID number of the pet.
- An adoption counselor will answer their questions about that pet. Animal Services can even set up a Skype video call with the pet!
- Once the adopter is ready to adopt, Animal Services will email the adoption contract to fill out. With all the paperwork done virtually, the only thing left to do is to come in and pick up the pet.
- We can schedule your pick-up time to ensure your pet will be ready and that your time spent at the shelter will be minimal.
We are still open for owner requested euthanasia services and deceased animal disposal.
The Animal Services Department (ASD) is providing mission-essential and critical services only on a modified schedule. Hand sanitizing stations are located throughout the facility and social distancing protocols are being implemented.
- Animal Welfare Officers continue to respond to high priority/emergency calls such as: injured or suffering animals, cruelty and requests from police officers for assistance with animals. Road-side deceased animal pick-up services also continue.
- ASD is providing adoptions, rescue and return of lost pet services at the Pet Adoption and Protection Center (PAPC). The Petco adoption center in South Miami is also open for adoptions. ASD is currently waiving all adoption fees at both locations.
- Emergency fosters who can temporarily provide in-home care for shelter pets are needed. The most urgent housing needs are for medium and large dogs and pets with special needs. ASD will provide veterinary care, supplies and food for fostered pets. Interested fosters can email [email protected].
- All off-site adoption events are listed on the Animal Services calendar. Please check this calendar for information regarding event cancellations, as it is continually updated.
- There is no evidence that dogs or cats can be infected or spread the virus that causes COVID-19. Always avoid handling pets if you are sick and avoid touching animals you don't know.
