Furry Fursday: Meet Yhela

Surrendered to the shelter she's looking for a loyal companion

February 23, 2017


Yhela is a 5 year old American Bulldog mix who was surrendered to the Soffer and Fine Adoption Center because her owner could no longer keep her.

Looking for a loyal companion? This is the perfect girl for you. Yhela is the kind of dog who will truly stick by your side. Consider her a giant lap dog because the closer she can get to you, the better. She is a big fur ball of love. Precious strolls in the park or a night of take-out and a movie with her human are great ways to spend the day with Yhela. She is the perfect doggie to come home to and just hug after a long day of work. Yhela also gets along great with other doggies and will make sure they are cuddled and loved; she is the best sister a doggie(or human) could as for!


Walk for the Animals

The most exciting annual community event, Walk for the Animals, makes its way back to Miami for another fabulous morning on Saturday, March 4, 2017. More than 3,000 people and their canine companions will gather at Bayfront Park for a day filled with fun and exciting activities for the whole family, all to benefit the homeless dogs and cats of Miami. Whether you register to walk as an individual, with your family or together with your school, club or other social group as a “pack,” you will definitely have a great time at this walk for a great cause!

At the Walk for the Animals, going the extra mile to support our furry friends is literally a “walk in the park!” Starting at 8:30AM, people and doggies of all ages will enjoy a morning filled with entertainment, including a one mile walk around beautiful Bayfront Park, fun games, exciting raffles and greatly amusing people and doggie contests like the “Look-Alike” and “Best Kisser” contests. Your pooch will have a dog-gone good time at the Doggie Fun Zone, where he or she will become an instant track star without any prior experience. This enclosed doggie racetrack gives your dog the chance to try something new and fun while dazzling the crowd with his/her athletic skills and agility! There will also be much more fabulous entertainment for both humans and doggies to enjoy.

This event is a great fundraising event to help all of the doggies and kitties in need! A donation of $50 or more will earn supporters a Walk t-shirt, goodie bag with many wonderful treats for you and your furry friend and the opportunity to participate in the 2017 Walk for the Animals as a proud registrant. And when you fundraise, there is so much more to enjoy. The top three fundraisers will win great prizes, which makes fundraising for this event even more rewarding!
