Miami-Dade County Animal Services to Waive Pet Adoption Fees During PetSmart Charities® National Adoption Week

Each year, more than five million pets enter animal shelters in need of loving homes. Miami-Dade County Animal Services (Animal Services) is proud to partner with PetSmart Charities® to bring adoptable pets to local PetSmart locations and waive adoption fees for pets 4 months and older at Pet Adoption and Protection Center and its satellite adoption centers in support of National Adoption Week, through July 17, 2022. Adoption fees for kittens under 4 months old are $30.00 $ and puppies under 4 months are $85.00. Adopters will still be responsible for the $30.00 dog license fee.

With over 600 pets currently available for adoption, Animal Services asks the community to open their hearts and homes to adopt or foster pets, especially medium and large dogs. All adoptions include the first set of age-appropriate vaccines, microchipping, deworming and sterilization surgery. The Animal Services Pet Care and Adoption Center is located at 3599 NW 79th Ave., Doral 33122, and is open Monday through Friday from 12:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Saturday through Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. h.

“Our community plays a vital role in our rescue mission; by adopting or adopting a shelter animal, you can help animals live their best lives with a loving family,” said Bronwyn Stanford, Director of Animal Services.

“National Adoption Week is a perfect opportunity to give a pet what it needs most: people to love,” said Heidi Fulcher, Adoption Grants Manager at PetSmart Charities. “Over the years, working with local partners such as Animal Services, we have matched over 10 million pets with loving homes. Around the world, people say that their pets are important members of the family that also enhance their lives. It’s a win-win!
