Reminder: Miami-Dade Animal Services' 24-hour pet adoption event returns this weekend to Tropical Park

Mega-Match-A-Thon petstravaganza starts this Friday, Oct. 21 at one minute before midnight

MIAMI (October 20, 2016)

Miami-Dade Animal Services will host the fourth annual Mega-Match-A-Thon pet adoption extravaganza starting at one minute before midnight—11:59 pm—this Friday October, 21 and continues through Saturday October 22, 11:59 pm at Tropical Park, 7900 SW 40th St, Miami, FL 33155.

Adopters have a 24-hour window of opportunity to meet, fall in love with and adopt one or more of over a hundred adorable cats, kittens, dogs and puppies from Animal Services, as well as partner agencies and several local rescue groups. Adoption fees to take home the pet that matches your personality or lifestyle begin at a low $30 for dogs over 4 months old and all cats (adoption fee for puppies under 4 months old is $75). All pets adopted are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped and ready to be loved.

This year’s theme focuses on the “perfect match factor” and pet adopters are invited to take advantage of the all-night, all day celebration to “Find Your Perfect Match” in a fun and festive atmosphere. The event includes round-the-clock entertainment, food trucks, music and children’s activities. See Entertainment and Activity Schedule.
