Adopt, don't shop!


Adopt a furry friend and save a life

The Miami-Dade Animal Services (Animal Services) are encouraging the community to adopt, not shop for a family pet. To motivate pet lovers to adopt, Animal Services is waiving adoption fees on all cats and dogs over 4 months old, as part of the second annual Pets are Priceless promotion from December 1 through December 31.

With the saved money, adopters can buy a fluffy bed, get started on a pet health insurance plan or a pet-friendly sofa blanket for their new friend.

Waived fee adoptions are available at the shelter located at 3599 NW 79 Avenue, Doral FL 33122, the Petco Adoption Center in Partnership with Miami-Dade Animal Services, 6200 S Dixie Hwy, South Miami, FL 33143. You can check out the PetSmart locations at all Animal Services adoption events in the community during the month of December.

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 under 4 months.
