The Miami-Dade County Animal Services Department (ASD) in coordination with the Miami-Dade County Public Library System (MDPLS) will be hosting a sweater drive for shelter dogs beginning Nov. 15 and continuing through Dec. 15.
In preparation for dropping temperatures and the upcoming winter season, ASD is seeking donations of sweaters to keep shelter dogs warm and comfortable. Drop off new and gently used dog sweaters at any MDPLS branch library. Sweatshirts also may be donated and are needed in children’s small to adult extra-large sizes.
“Keeping our pets safe and healthy at the shelter is a top priority,” said Alex Muñoz, Miami-Dade Animal Services Department director. “These contributions will assist us in ensuring that our shelter pets are kept warm during the winter months.”
