I've been volunteering there for 5 years now, and I don't see anything exposed by another review: abuse etc... Well, the other review was written in 2012 so I think many things happened that now HS is the opposite of what was described. The fact is that each dog is treated "personally" and we are encouraged not only of walking them but also socializing, ie, staying with the dogs in their cells. The volunteer training is very well conducted. The management is really concerned with the animals, dogs and cats. I invite you to go there and see by your own eyes. And help us to get homes for these lovely creatures.

Unfortunately, the Humane Society of Greater Miami hires “traditional” dog trainers, aka, punitive, aversive, abusive, force based trainers that are proven to be destructive to both a dog’s health and the relationship with their owner. A dogs behavior is made worse by employing these types of abusive “trainers” as written here. http://www.funpawcare.com/2012/10/09/humane-society-of-greater-miami-ignorance/
