Welcome to the Pet Information/Lost & Found page for the Village of Palmetto Bay. We like to think we are man's best friend -- to man's best friend. (And if you followed that, you deserve a doggie biscuit!)
Most visitors to this webpage are here in crisis -- you've LOST your family pet. Rest assured, we've been there -- so we will do our best to foster a swift reunion. But, this page is also a place of happiness, as you will also see several FOUND animals listed here.
You're in good hands -- because so many Village staffers are pet lovers, too! We take great pride in the role we play in facilitating happy reunions between animals and Village pet owners. Probably more than we know... In fact, if and when you have a success story to share, please tell us about it via e-mail or on Facebook. Nothing like a success story to give others hope in their time of need.
EXTRA EXTRA: Come out January 27 at 11am for a doggie casting call and have your perfect pooch featured in an upcoming Village video showcasing the Perrine Wayside Dog Park. We hope to see you out there!
The Village of Palmetto Bay does not operate its own Animal Services program. Instead we rely on the professionals at the County level. Please visit Miami-Dade Animal Services as an important resource for information including:
- Licensing / Microchips
- Euthanasia / Vaccinations
- Spay-Neuter / Pet Adoption
- Groomer Licensing / Vets & Dealer Licenses
- Pet Safety / Disaster Preparedness
- Pet Transportation / Pet Laws
- Lost & Found / Shelter Locations
Visit Palmetto Bay's only park where dogs can let their hair down and run free: Perrine Wayside Perrine Wayside Dog Park. Named "Best Dog Park" by Miami NewTimes in 2010, this contained and conveniently located park is closed the 2nd and 4th Tuesday each month (til noon) for maintenance. Perrine Wayside Park, located at 16425 So. Dixie Highway, even has its own Dog Park Facebook.
Remember to dog- and cat-proof your home over the holidays. All those shinny ornaments, Christmas Trees, wreaths, and delicious food can be a real danger to your pets -- and cost you a bundle if you have to make an emergency trip to your veterinarian. Pay attention to what your animals are up to and you’ll head off a problem before it happens!
We also found this very helpful checklist to consider, on the ASPCA website.
First and foremost, (1) when you discover your pet missing or you want to announce you just found a stray pet, immediately post your information -- with a photo -- on the Village Dog Park Facebook and on our general municipal Facebook. Next step, (2) be sure to visit Miami-Dade Animal Services and look for your pet among the County listings. Then, (3) please e-mail your notice with a photo to the Village Communications Office to be posted here on the Palmetto Bay website. If you have difficulty with any of these recommended steps, (4) call 305-259-1234. We can even take your report over the phone if you wish. You may also reach out to local pet rescue organizations -- we plan to provide a list here soon.
