Party Time!

It's the one-year anniversary of Miami-Dade Animal Services becoming a full-fledged county department, and director Dr. Sara Pizano is planning a big soiree on Saturday from 5 p.m.-9 p.m. at the shelter, 7401 NW 74 St., Medley.

There will be music, a three-tiered birthday with a very special decoration, and the unveiling of a new ad campaign.

It's the perfect opportunity to adopt a shelter dog or cat. Adopters will get their pictures taken with their new best friend, and get a pet goodie bag. It's also the perfect opportunity to note that for the first time, adoptions from the shelter hit the 6,000 mark for a year (Sept. 30, 2005-Oct. 1, 2006). That's nothing short of a miracle, so if you go, give Dr. Pizano a big pat on the back for overhauling that very troubled facility in so short a time.

If you're a homeowner, you need to bring proof of home ownership; renters bring authorization from your landlord to have a pet. Adoption fees apply, and donations of dog or cat toys are gratefully accepted.

Visit the department's website for more information, or call 305-884-1101.
