Miami-Dade Animal Services to hold "Pets are Priceless" promotion until the end of the year

MIAMI (October 29, 2015)

In an effort to save more lives, Miami-Dade County Animal Services (Animal Services) will waive adoption fees on all cats and dogs over 4 months old* as part of a “Pets are Priceless” promotion from November 2 through December 31, 2015. 

Waived fee adoptions will be available at the shelter location, 7401 NW 74th Street, Miami, FL 33166, at select PetSmart locations, the new Animal Services Neighborhood Pet Adoption Center at Petco, 6200 S Dixie Hwy, South Miami, FL 33143, and at all Animal Services off-site adoption events.

Pet adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, deworming, age appropriate vaccinations, microchip and FIV & FeLV testing for cats.  Adopters will only be responsible for the $27 license fee for dogs. *Please note, discount does not apply to puppies 4 months and younger. 

“There are so many pets at the shelter waiting for a loving home and we want to make it easy for pet lovers to adopt, not shop for a forever companion pet,” said Alex Muñoz, Director of Miami-Dade County Animal Services. “We urge anyone who is ready to receive the priceless companionship and unconditional love of a pet to adopt and save a life.”
