The mission of Born Free Pet Shelter, Inc. is to promote the welfare of animals. The Born Free Pet Shelter actively rescues dogs, provides quality care and offers sanctuary until loving homes can be found. BFPS is a no kill animal rescue.
Born Free Pet Shelter, provides a geographically critical service as a no-kill animal rescue organization in the Southwest Miami-Dade County community since 1981. Since the founding, Born Free Pet Shelter has saved over 25,000 animals. With thousands of successful adoptions, our programs support the sheltering and welfare of homeless animals.
Countless dogs are left abandoned and lost in the Miami streets and the Everglades. We rescue them and after nurturing these animals back to health we begin the process of adoption. We educate families as part of the adoption process and provide training programs for our volunteers. We are currently running a High School Student Volunteer Program, the students earn community service hours for their efforts. Our volunteers also include the University of Miami students, as well as caring adults from the community.
Our 5 acre property size allows for the care of animals in a humane, open environment where animals can exercise and maintain a healthy life while awaiting adoption. Our programs include microchips for all the animals, neutering, spaying and quality veterinary care in a nurturing environment.

Trees that once shaded the pens were destroyed by Hurricane Irma. We are using solar fabrics to keep the kennels cool in the summer. This video is of the section of the property that was most affected by the winds prior to Hurricane Irma. We are presently raising funds so that trees can be planted to provide natural shade once again.

Born Free Pet Shelter after Hurricane Irma. All our dogs were housed in a safe environment during the hurricane. We are still in need of support in bringing Born Free Pet Shelter back to life after Hurricane Irma. The tree debris was removed but trees need to be replaced to provide shade. Concrete houses are being built to replace damaged ones.
