Get ready for a pet adoption marathon of love at the 24-hour Mega Match-a-Thon adoption event, hosted by Miami-Dade Animal Services! Starting Friday, October 19th at 11:59 PM, adopters will have 24-hours to meet hundreds of amazing adoptable dogs, cats, puppies and kittens from the Humane Society of Greater Miami and Miami-Dade Animal Services at Tropical Park.
In addition to the Humane Society of Greater Miami, Animal Services has also partnered with PetSmart, Inc., Papa Johns Pizza and Revolution Radio Miami to make this an event to remember. There will be reduced adoption fees to take home your perfect pet match, not to mention plenty of fun for the whole family. The event includes round-the-clock entertainment from local artists, a farmer’s market, food trucks, music and children’s activities. All adoptable pets are already spayed or neutered, microchipped and are up-to-date with their vaccines. All they are missing is a family like yours to love unconditionally forever!
“This is one of the most exciting events of the year and we are looking forward to being a part of it again” says Laurie Hoffman, Executive Director at the Humane Society of Greater Miami. “This year we are hoping to find homes for many of our long-time shelter residents who have been patiently waiting for their perfect matches for long enough. We are hoping that with 24 hours of non-stop adoptions, we can watch many of our veteran pets finally go home with their perfect human matches.”

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. We are a private, not-for-profit, 501 (c) (3) charitable animal welfare organization supported solely by our programs and services, as well as donations, private grants and fundraising events.
About Miami-Dade County Animal Services: Every year Miami-Dade Animal Services provides care and refuge for 28,000 to 30,000 unwanted dogs and cats. Every day Animal Services staff and volunteers work diligently to find life-long homes for these abandoned animals by facilitating onsite adoptions, hosting off-site adoptions at events and locations throughout the community, and working collaboratively with over 100 rescue organizations and partners that have helped us meet our goal of a 90 percent save rate.
