    Every dog has their day – and Miami-Dade Animal Services is teaming with Miami-Dade Police and NBC 6 to make sure pups looking for their forever home get a chance to have a little fun.

    On Wednesday April 25th, shelter dogs will all get to spend the day at a park. Luis Cuellar from MDAS says that besides shelter, food, water and healthcare, pets need to have fun - adding that the shelter environment is stressful for dogs and that the longer a pet stay in a shelter, the more prone to illness and depression it is.

    Miami-Dade Animal Services are working to give shelter pets life enrichment opportunities, including playing outdoors with other dogs, toys, music and human contact. The afternoon will be filled with outdoor play time and doggie ice cream treats – and a chance for the pets to find a forever home at Tropical Park.
