Humane Society of Greater Miami The Humane Society of Greater Miami Adopt-A-Pet is a limited admit, adoption guarantee facility dedicated to placing every dog and cat in our care into a loving home, and to promoting responsible pet ownership and spay/neuter programs. Adoption guarantee simply means that every animal under our care is safe from the threat of euthanasia for as long as it takes to find them a forever family. We are not government funded and rely on our community for financial support.
Miami Dade Animal Services in October, 2005, the Miami-Dade Animal Services Department (ASD) was created as a stand-alone entity in an effort to provide focused care for the County's animal population. By becoming an independent entity, the Animal Services Department was able to concentrate its resources on its core mission of caring for the animals in its custody. Each year the shelter impounds approximately 36,000dogs and cats. Its goal is to reunite lost pets with their owners and find life-long homes for as many animals as possible as well as providing proper care for them while they're at the shelter.
