In an effort to help reduce the number of homeless pets, Miami-Dade County Animal Services and the Gold Coast Rail Road Museum will conduct a special pet adoption event on Saturday, Sept. 7, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Gold Coast Railroad Museum, 12450 SW 152 St.
The event will shed light on the tireless efforts and commitment of Miami-Dade County Animal Services Department and local rescues organizations to save the lives of countless dogs and cats every day.
The Gold Coast Railroad Museum will host a day of free admissions for the event. All pet adoptions will be half off for dogs and cats. Photo opportunities using the backdrop of historic trains also will be made available for each pet adoption. Several activities will be available, for an additional cost, including train rides, tours, arts and crafts, bounce houses and food trucks.
The Gold Coast Railroad Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving, exhibiting, and operating historic railroad equipment. Miami’s Gold Coast Railroad Museum houses an extensive collection of authentic train cars, including the Ferdinand Magellan, commissioned for use by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The museum was formed in 1957 by a group of Miamians who were trying to save pieces of Florida history that were taken for granted and were rapidly disappearing.
