A total of 45 dogs and cats found homes just in time to celebrate the first of many holidays to come during the grand opening celebration of the Petco Adoption Center in Partnership with Miami-Dade Animal Services located at 6200 S. Dixie Hwy, South Miami, FL 33143 which took place on Black Friday, November 27, 2015.
Besides the opportunity to connect, adopt and fall in love with a shelter pet, potential adopters enjoyed music, giveaways and a raffle, making for a festive and successful life-saving event.
The opportunity to save lives continues as Miami-Dade Animal Services and the Petco Foundation invite the community to Think Adoption First by visiting the new family-friendly adoption center located inside the South Miami Petco store.
Adoption fees for pets over four months old are waived—as part of Animal Services’ current Pets are Priceless promotion—until December 31, 2015. During this special promotion, adopters are only responsible for the $27 licensing fee for dogs. All pets adopted are spayed/neutered, microchipped, dewormed and given appropriate vaccines.
“It was a great to see the community come out and show their support of the Petco Adoption Center,” said Alex Muñoz, Director of Animal Services. “It was especially satisfying to know that large dogs were included in the total 45 adoptions at the Petco Adoption Center.”
