Pet Adoption

Animal Services is still open Monday through Saturday for in-person adoption services. Due to the challenges of COVID-19, Miami-Dade County Animal Services Department is also offering virtual meet-and-greets with adoptable pets. This makes adopting a pet easy and safe for those residents who are practicing social distancing at home. How virtual meet-and-greets with adoptable pets work: 

  1. Start your pet search and write down the name and ID number of the pet or pets you are interested in
  2. Once you've identified a pet you're interested in send an email to [email protected] with the subject line “virtual adoption.” Include the name and ID number of the animal, any questions you may have and your contact information in the email
  3. An Animal Services adoption counselor will contact you to answer any questions you have about that pet and set up a Skype video meet and greet call with the pet
  4. Once you're ready to adopt, Animal Services will email you an adoption contract to fill out and return. With all the paperwork done virtually, the only thing left to do is to come in and pick up your new pet
  5. Schedule a pickup time with Animal Services to ensure your pet will be ready and that your time spent at the shelter will be minimal

Animal Services is still open Monday through Saturday for in-person adoption services, but this new service offers the community additional choices in how they can adopt
