The Humane Society of Greater Miami is dedicated to creating a humane community in which all cats and dogs have homes with responsible, committed and loving caregivers. The Society is focused on ending the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable pets by providing the public with quality adoption services, low-cost spay/neuter services and extensive humane education programming for citizens of all ages. The Society advocates the elimination of cruelty, neglect and pet overpopulation and is dedicated to achieving a more kind and loving community for pets and people in Miami-Dade County.
The Humane Society of Greater Miami is a non-profit organization, funded by private donations, bequests and fundraising activities. More than 300 homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens each day are cared for at the Soffer and Fine Adoption Center in North Miami Beach. We are able to give these animals a second chance by providing tender loving care, a good meal, shelter and medical care for as long as it takes to find them homes. We rely on volunteers to help protect and care for the many animals who enter our shelter.
In order to become a registered volunteer, you must be 16 years old and above and make a three-month commitment of approximately four hours per week. For more info: www.humanesocietymiami.org

I don't really know what to think about this organization. At first, I was very excited to volunteer for them, I went to their website and decided to give it a shot so I contacted them through the email they provided. Days went by... no answer. I thought they may have been busy so I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and called them instead (on both phone numbers) and finally got someone on the phone after several attempts. The day of the orientation, I headed North MB to the address they had on the website but wasn't able to locate the center so I called and got a man on the phone who just grumbled something unintelligible. I got lost so decided to call again, this time he took longer to answer and just said that it was in Miami Beach (very helpful). Overall I am a bit disappointed about the whole experience and even though this might be a great organization (I wouldn't know) I really think that they should organize themselves better and more importantly be reachable!
I would love to join myself because I have a growing love for animals in need.That's why a I'm studying at my school to become a veterinarian.I also have a friend Daniella who wants to be one as well and we want to look and help out humane societies and non profit organizations to help the animals but,also do what we love doing.
