Community Engagement

The ASPCA Community Engagement team in the Miami area provides supportive services to pet owners in and around the Liberty City area. If you are in the Liberty City area, we may be able to provide additional information on resources to help keep your pets healthy.

Contact Us

For assistance in the Liberty City area, please fill out the form below and our team will contact you within 72 hours. Please do not use this form for emergency care. If your pet requires emergency care, visit your local veterinary emergency hospital.

To find a full-service veterinarian for medical emergencies in your area, please visit the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) website which will assist you in locating an accredited veterinary practice.



Reporting Animal Abuse

If you believe you have witnessed or otherwise have knowledge of animal abuse, we encourage you to contact your local law enforcement agency or animal control agency authorized to investigate animal related crimes in your jurisdiction. While the ASPCA works with local law enforcement throughout the country to assist with investigations into alleged abuse, we do not enforce the animal cruelty laws, nor are we associated with any local SPCAs that may have authority to do so.

To report abuse in Miami-Dade County, you can contact the Animal Services Department either by calling 311 or (305) 468-5900, or for crimes in progress, calling 911. You can also submit a report on the Miami-Dade Animal Services website. In all other areas, you should contact the local agency responsible for investigating animal crimes. If you are unsure of the appropriate agency, you can contact your local police department or sheriff’s office.

See additional information and tips on recognizing and reporting animal abuse.
