Happy Tails

Many thanks to all the wonderful people who have opened up their homes to a new dog, cat, puppy, or kitten. Our adoption program has greatly improved and we are proud to report that in 2013 we placed over 3,200 wonderful pets into loving homes. The more we adopt, the more we save!  Help us save more animals by adopting today!  We love to hear from our adopters.

spot and molly

Hi! My name is SPOT! I am appropriately named SPOT cause….well….I have a big spot on my rump! Oh, yes! I have one on my nose too! I arrived at the Humane Society of Greater Miami in a very pathetic state. I was malnourished, weak and suffering from a host of tummy issues. I wasn’t even inside yet when my mom, Arleen, (an employee of the Humane Society) spotted me. Her heart broke when she saw me. She immediately got me inside and made sure I was checked out! She said she would foster me before I even got processed! After a few days of wonderful care at the Humane Society, I went home with Arleen to meet her children, Emma and Mickey, and her furry baby Molly.

Guess what! I was a hit! Molly and I became the best of friends and her kids…HA…I won them over just like that! (If I weren’t a dog I would snap my fingers!) One day they sat down to make the decision on whether or not they were going to keep me…I heard them talking. I just used my fabulous love muffin skills and laid my head on Emma’s lap, then I licked her nose…and that sealed the deal! took only 5 minutes! Now, I totally have my mom wrapped around my little toe…but I prefer her belly rubs! I know I make her day, EVERYDAY. I LOVE my FOREVER family!!!!!!” sent by Mom Arleen
