Adopt Your Future Dog or Cat at Tropical Park, Miami, Today
Pet Sitters Flavia Berti and Tom Wyss are enjoying meeting all kinds of dogs, cats, and happy soon-to-be fur parents at the Humane Society of Greater Miami’s Mega Match-A-Thon in Tropical Park today.
Helping homeless cats and dogs find furever homes is so dear to Equipaws Pet Services’ mission. There are so many dogs and cats who need homes. First up: meet sweet, sweet Linda, an American Bulldog mix from Miami Dade Animal Services!
She is a 1.6 year old American Bulldog who is amazing with children and other dogs. She is ready for her new family, and would love to go home with you today! Just for today, there are special adoption fees. She can be home with you tonight for only $32.50. American Bulldogs are energetic, playful, and a great addition to a home with kids.

Pet sitters experience the consequences of not spaying and neutering cats and dogs first-hand. Our clients often contact us before anyone else when they come across a stray in need of help, food, and home, and we welcome that trust. As much as we want to help every cat, dog, or even bunny, we don’t always find a good home for them. And that hurts.
Luckily for the animals of Miami-Dade County, animal rescue groups and animal advocates have joined together this year to create a single, dedicated source of funding to help affordable spaying and neutering- in effect, preventing one of the main causes of pet overpopulation. It’s called the Pets’ Trust, and it’s very much needed in our community!
What does the Pets’ Trust Do?
The Pets’ Trust has proposed legislation to create a dedicated source of public funding to support free and low-cost spaying and neutering around the county. It would also support low-cost veterinary care, pet adoption and retention programs, as well as educational programs. The average Miami-Dade home owner would pay about $20 a year.Â This issue is close to our hearts: all four members of my pack are rescues, so I want to show appreciation for the people who helped save them by volunteering at the fundraisers and getting awareness about the impending vote out: Vote YES on #240 on November 6!
Fun for a Good Cause:
The Pets’ Trust has a busy time fundraising and spreading the word this year. You can join them for this Saturday’s Art auction (pictured), or for their AnnualÂ Howl-o-ween at Pinecrest GardensÂ on Sunday, October 28th , 2012, benefiting Friends Forever Humane Society and Petsâ€™ Trust Miami. This is the ONLY time during the year that the gardens open up to families with their pets. And,Â bonus!Â The South Florida Calendar Firefighters will be at Howl-o-ween to â€˜rock the runwayâ€™ with rescue dogs. It’s going to be a fun time with tons of pet owners and Miami citizens enjoying the sun, the costumes, the runway, and the food! Hope to see you there!
Ginger needs a loving pack!
One of our pet sitting clients in Miami has a heart of gold. She regularly fosters needy dogs, adding them to her already large and lovely pack. We walk and pet sit her dogs almost every week, so we know she takes extra special care of these lucky pups. Our client is currently fostering Ginger, a very playful puppy. She is a gorgeous girl, as you can see- made to enjoy the South Florida sun and fun! (That’s Snoop, below. He’s also sneaking about in the background of this shot.)
She’s a loving, energetic pup!
Ginger loves to play with her ball, or even a coconut if it’s handy. She is high energy and gets along well with other dogs. She would be the perfect companion to a younger dog who still wants to play all day. She is spayed and has all of her shots. She is potty and crate trained: she’ll sleep soundly at night on a nice comfy bed in her crate. She needs a firm, loving hand.
There is no charge to adopting her; her mom just wants to help her find her forever home. One more thing- she would love to stay in Miami! Okay, okay. We’d love for her to stay around Pinecrest so we could still see her from time to time. We have grown to love her, and hope to remain friends when she finds her new family.
Please spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, or even on Pinterest, or you can call or email us if you know someone or would like to bring her into your home!
