Veteran Pet Adoptions

Miami-Dade County Animal Services salutes our veterans by providing free pet adoptions and/or free spay/neuter services for their dog or cat. It's the County's way of saying, "Thank you for your service."

Eligible veterans* can adopt one animal (a cat or a dog) from the Miami-Dade County Animal Services Pet Adoption and Protection Center at no cost within one fiscal year.

Included with the adoption:

  • All vaccinations (first set of vaccines only for animals four months old or younger)
  • De-worming
  • Spay or neuter surgery*
  • Microchip
  • Heartworm test for dogs six months of age or older
  • Rabies license tags
  • FeLV test for cats

See below information for eligibility and requirements. If you have questions about veteran adoption, call 311 or visit the Pet Adoption and Protection Center located at 3599 NW 79 Avenue in Doral.
