Welcome to the Humane Society of Greater Miami

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.

Please note:

Our Soffer and Fine Adoption Center, Animal Intake, Boutique and Grooming Salon are currently CLOSED until further notice. Due to a respiratory illness that has affected some of our shelter pets, we feel it is in the best interest of all of our dogs and cats and of the public that we halt regular business operations, effective immediately. We are ensuring that every animal in our care is given the extra attention necessary to get them back to optimal health and to prevent any further illness from spreading. Your understanding during this crucial time is greatly appreciated. We hope to help connect you with your next furry family member soon!

Please no volunteers in-shelter during this time.

Please note that our clinics will continue regular operating hours.

For any questions, please email [email protected].
