Where: 3390 Mary St., Miami, FL 33133

Each year, Animal Services receives over 30,000 pets and sadly euthanizes a large number of them due to shelter overcrowding and lack of adoptions.

The goal of this event, as with any event in which the Department participates, is to increase pet adoptions and community awareness and involvement with the shelter.
