MIAMI, March 31, 2011)-- Animal Services is excited to announce additional donor-subsidized surgery days in April 2011 for Miami-Dade County residents. In an effort to help control the pet overpopulation problem, Miami-Dade Animal Services will offer donor-subsidized ($25 owner co-pay) spay/neuter services every Monday and Tuesday for dogs and ($15 owner co-pay) spay/neuter surgeries for cats every Thursday and Friday at the Animal Services shelter located at 7401 NW 74th Street, Miami, FL 33166.
“There are simply too many stray and abandoned dogs and cats and not enough homes to save every pet surrendered to Animal Services. Spaying or neutering your pet helps reduce the number of unwanted litters and protects them from health issues that may develop later in life”, said Dr. Pizano, Animal Services Director.
