On March 30, Miami-Dade Animal Services and the Humane Society of Greater Miami are hosting an Adoption Marathon, a 24-hour event to find every one of their animals a good home.
But South Florida is rich in adoptable furry friends all year long.
To get you in the awwwing and ohhhhing spirit, we've compiled a short slideshow of adoptable pets from area shelters and rescues.
There's Pipo, a smiling 4-year-old Shi-Tzu mix, Sushi the Cat, and Coffee the Grebble.
And a Broward shelter styled Lily, a 2-year-old poodle, with a pink tutu and pearls.
Have a free stable? South Florida SPCA has several beautiful horses that need a home.
