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 the Pet Adoption and Protection Center and its satellite adoption centers in support of National Adoption Week, through July 17, 2022. The adoption fee for kittens younger than 4 months is $30.00 and puppies younger than 4 months is $85.00. Adopters will still be responsible for the $30.00 dog licensing fee.

With more than 600 pets currently available for adoption, Animal Services is asking the community to open their hearts and homes to adopt or foster pets, especially medium and large size dogs. All adoptions include the first set of age-appropriate vaccines, microchip, deworming, and spay/neuter surgery. The Animal Services’ Pet Adoption and Protection Center is located at 3599 NW 79th Ave., Doral 33122, and is open Monday – Friday, noon to 6:30 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pet Smart Satellite locations include,

“Our community plays a critical role in our lifesaving mission; by adopting or fostering a shelter pet you can help pets live their best life with a loving family,” said Bronwyn Stanford, Director of Animal Services.

“National Adoption Week is an ideal opportunity to give a pet what they need most – people to love,” said Heidi Fulcher, Adoptions Grant Manager at PetSmart Charities. “Over the years, together with local partners such as Animal Services we’ve matched more than 10 million pets with loving homes. Globally, people say their pets are important family members that enhance their lives, too. That’s a win-win!”
