Important Traffic Detour Information!
Ravenswood Road (past the Rustic Inn Restaurant) is now CLOSED! If you are driving to our Adoption Center from Griffin Road; or if you exit either I-95 or the Florida Turnpike via Griffin Road, you will have to detour and turn NORTH on SW 30th Avenue and EAST (right-hand turn) onto SW 42nd Street (see map for details). Ravenswood Road will be closed indefinitely in order to replace the Ravenswood Road Bridge. The good news is that you will be able to drive by the construction site of our new Animal Care Adoption Center!
