(MIAMI, March 20th, 2009) - In an effort to help control the cat overpopulation problem in Miami-Dade County, the Animal Services Department, Humane Society of Greater Miami Adopt-A-Pet, The Cat Network, Inc., South Florida Veterinary Medical Association and South Florida Veterinary Foundation will join forces and offer free spay/neuter services on March 22nd, 2009 at the clinic located at 10700 SW 211 Street, Miami, FL 33189.  Local veterinarians will be donating their time to perform the spays and neuters.


Participating organizations encourage pet owners to spay or neuter their pets, as it helps reduce the number of unwanted dogs and cats and protects them from health issues that may develop later in life.


What:    Free spay and neuter for cats only.  All appointments booked.


Who:     Miami-Dade Animal Services Department

               Humane Society of Greater Miami Adopt a Pet

               The Cat Network, Inc.

Where:   10700 SW 211 Street, Miami.


Requirements: Service for Miami-Dade County Residents only. Proof of current rabies vaccination for cats over 4 months of age.  A rabies vaccine can be obtained the day of surgery at no additional cost. Veterinarian may decline surgery due to health reasons.  Feral cats and those who go outdoors will be ear tipped to identify them as sterilized.


The pet overpopulation crisis needs the entire community to work together in order to reduce the number of animals abandoned and ultimately euthanized at Animal Services.  In this partnership, our goal is to sterilize approximately 300 cats.
