Miami is one of the most pet-friendly places to live. Lincoln Road is overrun with little dogs wearing designer labels, and there are probably just as many cats curled up in a spot of sun waiting for their humans to come home.

And yet there are still literally thousands of homeless dogs and cats that need someone to love them. And you need love, too. Which is why you need to get a little proactive with the whole finding true love thing -- by adopting a pet.

The ASPCA has teamed up with Miami-Dade Animal Services, The Humane Society of Greater Miami Adopt-A-Pet, the Cat Network, and other agencies to hold a 24-hour pet adoption event this weekend at Tropical Park. And they've also taken tons of hilarious, professionally posed photos of eligible pups and gatos that put Glamour Shots to shame.

Upcoming Events


To

entice you (and because everyone loves looking at pictures of cute

puppies and kitties), here are some of the dogs and cats that are

available for adoption, courtesy of the Humane Society of Greater Miami Adopt-A-Pet:

Starting tonight, March 30, at 11:59 p.m. through Saturday, March 31 at 11:59 p.m., up to 500 dogs and cats of all sizes and ages will be available for adoption. We're talking puppies, kittens, purebreds, mutts -- you name it. The dogs and cats will be rotated throughout the 24-hour event, so if you don't fall in love instantly, go have a snack and come back to see who's around this time.

Adoption fees are on a sliding scale, based on the age of the pet and how long they've been in the shelter system. For instance, an adult cat that's been at a shelter for four months or longer is completely free to adopt. Dogs that have been in the shelter for four months or longer have a $30 adoption fee. Adoption fees range upward, but fees max out at $100. Plus, everyone that adopts a pet will have their portraits taken with their new family member.

In addition to ohhing and ahhing over the adorable pups and kitties, homo sapiens can munch out on food trucks, listen to continuous music by live DJs, and have our poor furless faces painted. Look, you know your pathetic life needs a little love (plus, that Match.com subscription just isn't working for you), so head out to Tropical Park and find a warm body to cuddle up to.
