Miami-Dade Animal Services invites community to a special adoption event on January 20


Miami, Florida – The Miami-Dade County Animal Services Department (ASD) is excited to invite the community to a unique adoption event. This special gathering, aimed at finding forever homes for shelter pets, is scheduled for January 20, 2024, from 1 pm to 5 pm. It will be held at the Medley facility, located at 7401 NW 74th St., Medley, FL 33166.

In an attempt to make the adoption process even more appealing, the first five adoptions on this day will come with a special bonus. These lucky new pet owners will receive a complimentary crate and bed, designed to make the transition of their new pets into their homes as smooth and comfortable as possible. But the generosity doesn’t stop there. All adopters will be gifted goody bags brimming with essential items for their new furry friends. These bags include a variety of items like a bag of food and scoop, treats, a leash and collar, grooming supplies (shampoo and brush), toys and blankets, and even a chew bone.

Annette Jose, the Director for Miami-Dade County Animal Services, expressed her enthusiasm for the event: “Come join us as we have a special adoption event for our Medley dogs. Together we can help our shelter pets find loving homes.” She emphasized the importance of this event in making a real difference by reducing the shelter population and rehoming pets that are stray or lost in the community.

The Medley Facility, which opened its doors for adoptions in 2016, has been instrumental in housing dogs that require quarantine for medical reasons, are undergoing medical treatment, or have behavior concerns. In light of the current challenges of overpopulation, the Medley facility has been reactivated to temporarily house dogs available for adoption. The primary goal of this event is to alleviate the pressure of overcrowding in the shelter and to ensure these deserving animals find homes filled with love and care.
