THE FOLLOWING IS A PRESS RELEASE BY MIAMI -DADE COUNTY -ANIMAL SHELTER
SOUTHEAST FLORIDA ANIMAL SHELTERS
PARTNER TO BEAT THE HEAT!
Fort Lauderdale, FL – In an effort to help reduce the pet overpopulation problem in the Southeast Florida region, six animal shelters have joined forces and formed the Southeast Florida Region Spay/Neuter Coalition. The Coalition’s first project is called “Beat the Heat Spay/Neuter Week” and will take place February 21 – 25. This spay/neuter event is for felines eight weeks of age or older who are free-roaming, feral or lucky enough to have a home. The goal of the group is to collectively sterilize 1,650 cats during this time frame. The cost will be just $15 per cat and include rabies vaccination, FVRCP and a microchip.
The six organizations that formed the coalition are: Broward County Animal Care & Adoption, Humane Society of Broward County, Humane Society of Greater Miami, Miami-Dade Animal Services, Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control, and Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. Based on the success of “Beat the Heat Spay/Neuter Week” the coalition hopes to facilitate additional spay/neuter programs in the near future for at-risk animals in the region.
While kittens are cute, the fact is there are simply too many unwanted cats and not enough homes. Only with your help can we reduce the number of unwanted cats entering shelters. Appointments are necessary, and you must be a resident of one of these counties to participate, so please contact the shelter near you to take advantage of this offer as space is limited.

Each shelter is independent and not affiliated with one another, however they are coming together to help promote this important message. Pet overpopulation is something we can control, but it will take help from every one to make a difference.
