Find your perfect furry match during the 24-hour pet adoption event at Tropical Park

MIAMI (October 17, 2017)

It’s a pet adoption marathon of love at the 24-hour Mega Match-a-Thon starting Friday, October 20 at 11:59 p.m. and all day Saturday, October 21 until 11:59 p.m. at Tropical Park, 7900 SW 40th St, Miami, FL 33155.

Miami-Dade Animal Services (Animal Services) is partnering with PetSmart Charities and Revolution Radio Miami to host the 2017 Mega Match-a-thon event. Adopters will 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.

Adoption fees to take home your perfect pet match are 50% off for dogs over four months of age and free for cats/kittens. All pets adopted are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped and ready to be loved.

The event includes round-the-clock entertainment from local artists, a farmer’s market, food trucks, music and children’s activities. See Entertainment and Activity Schedule.

Pet lovers are encouraged to follow our efforts before and during the event by visiting www.miamidade.gov/animals/ and following the hashtag #ASDMegaMatch on social media.
