FoMA is teaming up in the month of August with NBC and Telemundo owned stations PLUS hundreds of shelters across the country to host Clear the Shelters, a nationwide pet adoption drive that helps find loving homes for animals in need. More than 411,000 pets have found their forever homes since 2015!

Miami-Dade Animal Services is participating in the #ClearTheShelters campaign, so we encourage our local followers and supporters to adopt from our Pet Adoption and Protection Center in Doral. You can apply to adopt online easily on our website or tune in every Thursday at 11 a.m. for our Virtual Facebook Live Adoption Events!

If you’re not ready to adopt, we invite you to join the #ClearTheShelters challenge on social media! Simply follow these steps:

1. Take a video describing why you love your adopted shelter pets

2. Upload it to Instagram

3. Tag a friend (or two!) and challenge them to do the same

4. Use #ClearTheShelters and tag @fomapets so we can repost it!
