Pursuant to Florida's Sunshine Law (Fla. Stat. secs. 119.01 to 119.15 (1995)), I hereby request the following records:

Good Afternoon,

I'm reaching to provide a response to your request for records pertaining to pet licensing and registration data. Please be advised that this information is exempt from public records requests under Florida Statute 828.30 (listed below). Any records that include this information would have to be redacted to remove pet owner information. Miami-Dade County Animal Services had 207,648 pets registered in FY15/16.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you.

Hi there,

Thanks so much for your message. I'd still be very interested in receiving some version of this information. Is the data available on a spreadsheet, and would it be possible to remove any columns with personally-identifying information? We're primarily interested in the animal/breed, its name, and (if possible) the zip code in which it lives.

Thanks so much for your help!

From: Vargas, Alba (ASD)

Good Afternoon,

All licensing information is contained within the Department's database, it is not available in a spreadsheet format. In addition, the information is exempt from records requests (this includes breed, pet name, and zip code). Thank you.
