MIAMI -

Over 40 pets will leave Miami as a transport to Second Chance Rescue in Maryland takes place Sunday.

Loading time will begin at 10 am Sunday at Miami-Dade County Animal Services Department (MDCASD), located at 7401 NW 74th Street in Miami.

Afterwards, MDCASD says they'll continue to Comfort Kennels for the rest of the pets. Departure is expected around 11:45 am from Comfort Kennels.

MDCASD says the pets will leave sunny Miami for Maryland to live "a fun life with the snow and hills, four seasons and lots of room to play."
