   WHAT: As part of Spay Day USA, a national program of The
Humane Society of the United States, the City of Miami Beach, The
Cat Network, and SoBe Spay and Neuter will host two "Fix-A-Thon"
events to promote spay/neuter as a humane and effective means of
reducing the number of cats who are put down in shelters each
year.

   HOW: Reservations required. Please call 305.233.9958. Cash and
check payment only. Males $25; Females $40.

   WHEN: Sunday, March 1, 2009, at 9:00am

   WHERE: Flamingo Park, Parking Lot P9, 11th Street at Jefferson
Avenue, Miami Beach.

   WHEN: Saturday, March 14, 2009, at 9:00am

   WHERE: North Shore Youth Center, 501 72nd Street, Miami Beach.

   WHY: The benefits of spay/neuter are far-ranging and numerous.
Altered animals tend to be healthier and have fewer behavioral
problems. They don't contribute to the overpopulation problem, so
fewer animals end up homeless in shelters or on the streets.
Currently, shelter workers nationwide are forced to euthanize an
estimated three to four million homeless cats and dogs each year,
at an average cost to taxpayers of $176 per animal. During Spay
Day USA, each humane American is encouraged to help solve this
problem by sponsoring the spay or neuter of at least one cat or
dog. Since Spay Day USA's inception in 1995, participants have
altered over 1 million animals, saving potentially millions of
lives and tax dollars.
