Change Miami-Dade Animal Services Protocol

I propose for protocol to require two different personal with two different scanners, to scan each animal before euthanasia and stray animal bodies to be held at the facility for 24 hours and Miami-Dade Animal Services.

On December 14th, our beloved family 4yr old dog Milo escaped our yard and got hit by a car, we were unable to find him. At the time Milo did not have his collar, but be felt safety from his microchip been implanted and up to date with our information. Milo was picked up by Animal Services ( called by a good samaritan) at 6pm and euthanized by 11pm (all while their facility was closed to the public). I left wondering and angry why was I not contacted? Why was his microchip not scan? Did they just see a dog without a collar and thought he did not have a home and it was ok to euthanize him because no one would come looking for him? On top of everything I went to their office in the morning looking for him, but it would have been too late to even claim his body, because bodies are shipped out first thing to an animal landfill.

They need to focus on reuniting families and allowing those who did not make it to be claim by their humans. I hope this is a change that can actually be done and make a difference since it does not require an increase of their budget or personal.
