MIAMI -

Miami’s Mega Pet Adoption Event will be held Saturday, April 6, from 9  a.m. to 9 p.m. The event features hundreds of homeless pets hoping to find their forever homes.

Tropical Park is located along 7900 Bird Road in Miami, just east of South Miami. There will be entertainment, food trucks, and a kid’s fun area. Admission to the park is free and complimentary parking is available.

The event is hosted by Miami-Dade Animal Services, Humane Society of Greater Miami, and The Cat Network, along with rescue groups from all over South Florida.

Miami’s Mega Pet Adoption Event is one of a handful of big events geared toward finding shelter animals loving homes. Last year's Mega Match-a-thon found homes for 288 animals. The 24 Hour Mega Pet Adoption Event last October united 438 pets with new families.
