Humane Society to participate in National Spay Day, Feb. 22

By Robert Hamilton….
The Humane Society of Greater Miami on Tuesday, Feb. 22, will participate in Spay Day, an international campaign of The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International, to promote the life saving benefits of spay/neuter.

This event will offer $15 spay/neuter, with rabies vaccine, (no ear-tipping) for privately owned cats. Open to the public with no income restrictions, this event limits one cat per appointment. To schedule an appointment, call 305-252-3389, Tuesday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Surgeries will be performed at the Humane Society of Greater Miami’s South Clinic at Cutler Bay, 10700 SW 211 St.

In conjunction with National Spay Day, the Humane Society of Greater Miami is participating in an online pet photo contest. To enter your pet, visit online at http//humanesociety.org/photocontest and select “Humane Society of Greater Miami” as the beneficiary of your donation. Each vote cost $1 and funds raised allow thousands more spays and neuters to be performed around the globe. Submissions are being accepted through Mar. 4.

Entering its 17th year, Spay Day estimates its programs have altered more than 1.5 million animals. It has been a proud achievement of Spay Day that the number of homeless cats and dogs euthanized in the U.S. has fallen from approximately 13.5 million in 1973 to fewer than 4 million currently.

The Humane Society of Greater Miami Adopt-A-Pet is a limited admit, adoption guarantee facility dedicated to placing every dog and cat in their care into a loving home, and to promoting responsible pet ownership and spay/neuter programs.
