Transport Program



On the road towards a Happy Tail

We are a limited admit, adoption guarantee adoption facility meaning that all animals in our care are safe from the threat of euthanasia due to time, space or treatable medical conditions. With a successful track record of over 3,200 adoptions a year, most of our animals meet their forever families quite quickly once placed for adoption. However, there are some animals that no matter the exposure and the effort, find it more difficult to find a home.

To improve their chances for a more timely adoption, the Humane Society of Greater Miami developed a Transfer Program for animals that have been in our care for more than 90 days. The animals that are selected for this program are transferred to limited admit/adoption guarantee shelters or rescues that mirror our mission, efforts and excellent care.

As of today, we have completed four transfers to the Humane Society of Pinellas, with over 50 dogs being transferred and almost all have already been adopted! We are so excited every time we receive an adoption photograph of a “Happy Tail” from their organization showcasing a happily ever after for one of our dogs that had so much difficulty getting adopted here. It is a win-win situation and we love our partnership with the Humane Society of Pinellas in Clearwater, Florida.
