Each animal at our shelter is free from the threat of euthanasia while they wait for their forever family. More than 2,300 animals each year find their human companions and begin their new lives in the comfort of homes around South Florida. Before a pet is available for adoption, great lengths are made to make sure the pet is healthy, vaccinated and spayed or neutered. We provide guidance to make sure the right match is made and the pet is placed in the right home.

We run a veterinary clinic in North Miami Beach where we strive to end our community's pet overpopulation problem by performing thousands of sterilization surgeries each year. We have programs that help the financially challenged people of our community by providing free and low-cost services for vaccinations and spay/neuter surgeries.

Staff and volunteers travel to schools, libraries, organizations and clubs to teach the young and the old about responsible pet ownership and to promote the human/animal bond. Our philosophy is to engage the young and teach them about being kind to animals, being a responsible pet owner and the causes and effects of pet overpopulation while also educating the parents and the elderly making it a full circle of informed members of our community. More than 10,000 children and adults are seen on a yearly basis.

Our Community Pet Support Program and Pantry is here for you and your pets. This program helps pet-owners who are struggling to care for their pets by providing them with valuable tools like training, food, supplies, minor financial support, medical care and other pet resources. In addition, we are proud to provide pantry offerings to community cat colony feeders, volunteer trappers, and good Samaritans who are fostering dogs until their owner is located, because we know each of these is a valuable component to a humane, collaborative community!

We are a not-for-profit charitable animal welfare organization supported solely by donations, private grants and fundraising events. We rely on our community for financial support.


The Humane Society of Greater Miami is a limited admit, adoption guarantee facility dedicated to placing every dog and cat in our care into a loving home, and to promoting responsible pet ownership and spay/neuter programs. Adoption guarantee means that every animal that is admitted to our shelter is free from the threat of euthanasia due to time, space, or treatable medical issues. We provide shelter, food, veterinary care, and plenty of TLC while the dogs and cats wait for their permanent home, no matter how long it takes.

We have been helping homeless animals in Miami-Dade County since 1936. We offer programs and services to educate, inform, and inspire people to take responsible care of their pets and treat animals with the kindness they deserve. With the support of people from across the county, we are helping to create a better community for all.
