You’re feeling a little lonely, and you’ve decided it’s time for a new furry friend. Or maybe your kids have finally persuaded you they really, really, need a dog.
Miami-Dade Animal Services and the Humane Society of Greater Miami both operate adoption centers where you can meet adoptable dogs, cats, puppies and kittens. Dozens of rescue groups also have cats and dogs for adoption.
If you’re not sure you’re ready to adopt, animal shelters and rescue groups always need volunteers and foster parents to care for and socialize animals. Spring is kitten season, and rescue groups and shelters are bursting at the seams with kittens who need to be bottle fed or housed until they are old enough to be adopted.
If you already have a pet, or you’ve found a kitten or cat to join your family, Miami-Dade Animal Services and the Humane Society also offer low-cost vaccine and spay and neuter clinics.

Miami on the Cheap has partnered with CubeSmart, a national self-storage company with a number of locations in South Florida, from Miami to Broward to West Palm Beach, to provide content for its City Moving Guide for Miami.
As CubeSmart’s City Guide Expert for Miami, I’ll be sharing insights on Miami from the perspective of a South Florida local.
