The Humane Society of Greater Miami has been helping homeless animals in Miami-Dade County since 1936. With the support of local people and corporations, we are helping to create a better community for all. As a private, not-for-profit, charitable animal welfare organization, we rely on the community to help us fulfill our mission of finding a loving home for the dogs and cats in our care and promoting responsible pet ownership and spay/neuter programs.
We are a limited admit, adoption guarantee facility. Adoption guarantee means that every animal under our care is safe from the threat of euthanasia for as long as it takes to find them a forever family.
Ways to help:
There are many ways you can help the 400 dogs and cats we care for every day.

Monthly Giving – Become a Dedicated Companion
The Humane Society of Greater Miami has a special group of friends that does everything they can to help the animals. They are our Dedicated Companions. Like you, they help us save lives.
As a Dedicated Companion, your monthly gift will provide consistent care and support for more than 400 animals that are in our care on a daily basis in our shelter and through our foster care program. When you become a monthly donor, you decide the level of your commitment. Please indicate the amount you want to give each month and we will automatically process your monthly gift via your credit card on the 9th day of each month. Once you made your initial donation on the online form, we’ll handle the rest!
Join our family of donors who are already making an important difference in the lives of homeless pets. We couldn’t fulfill our mission of finding a loving home for every dog and cat in our care and to promoting responsible pet ownership and spay/neuter programs without your help!
