Free Spay/Neuter Services

HUMANE SOCIETY OF GREATER MIAMI TO OFFER FREE SPAY/NEUTER
SERVICES TO PETS BELONGING TO CITY OF MIAMI RESIDENTS

20 March 2008 (Miami, FL) - The Mobile Animal Clinic (MAC) will
be offering free spay/neuter services to pets of eligible low
income residents of the City of Miami starting April 8th.

   The MAC will travel two days per week to Little Haiti, the
Upper East Side, Curtis Park, Shenandoah and Coconut Grove
neighborhoods.

   In order to qualify for a free spay/neuter surgery, the pet
owner must show proof of federal assistance such as food stamps,
Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, Aid for Families with
Dependent Children or Jackson Clinic card.

   The schedule for the mobile unit is available at
http://www.miamigov.com/cms/ (in the news channel) and is also detailed
below.

   The MAC is part of an alliance between Miami-Dade County
Animal Services and the Humane Society of Greater Miami.

   The services are part of an effort spearheaded by the South
Florida Animal Welfare Association, a collaboration of animal
welfare organizations from Monroe County to the Treasure Coast,
that promotes the spaying and neutering of pets.

   However, the Humane Society of Greater Miami maintains an
ongoing program to inform the public about the importance of this
issue. In fact, the Humane Society of Greater Miami seeks to
transform the public's perception about pet sterilization, which
is paramount to ending the serious pet overpopulation problem in
Miami-Dade County.

   In April and May, the MAC unit's schedule will be:

   April 8, Upper East Side Service Center / Legion Park
6599 Biscayne Blvd.

   April 11, 15, Shenandoah Park, 1800 S.W. 21st Ave.

   April 16, 25, Elizabeth Virrick Park, 3255 Plaza St., Coconut
Grove.

   May 13, 20, Little Haiti Net Center, 6421 N.E. 2nd Ave.

   May 21, 28, Curtis Park Sports Complex, 1901 N.W. 24th St.

   For more information on the MAC schedule or other services,
please call the Humane Society of Greater Miami at (305) 696-0800
