Community Cats FREE Spay Neuter Program
All healthy, community cats older than two months and heavier than two pounds can be spayed/neutered at no cost (ear tip is mandatory) at the Miami-Dade County Community Spay Neuter Clinic at 10700 SW 211 street in Cutler Bay, FL 33189.
Community cats are defined as un-owned cats whose "home" is within the community rather than in an individual household. In Miami-Dade County there are more than 300,000 homeless cats. Cats can start breeding at four months of age and can have up to four liters a year with up to six kittens a litter.
Community cats may be dropped-off between 7:00 am-10:00 am Tuesday-Saturday; no appointment needed. If you need assistance or information about trapping community cats - including renting traps, please call our Community Cat Coordinator at 305-255-4032 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Humane Education Program
The Humane Society of Greater Miami believes that the building of a more kind, just and loving community for the pets and people of Miami-Dade County begins with instilling the values of kindness and compassion. At public and private schools, scouting troops, special needs groups, local libraries, various community youth organizations as well as adult organizations, the Humane Society of Greater Miami teaches the young and old appropriate lessons about kindness to animals, empathy, responsible pet care and the causes and results of pet overpopulation. Last year - 2014 - was a very successful year! We have educated 1,508 adults and 11,777 children. If you would like to request a humane education speaker to visit your child's classroom or scout troop, please contact email@example.com.
Pet Therapy Program
The Pet Therapy Program at the Humane Society of Greater Miami brings the unique and healing human/animal bond to residents and patients of healthcare facilities, rehabilitation centers, children's hospitals and senior citizen homes across Miami. Certified animals shower residents and patients with unconditional love, creating happy, exciting interactions between pets and people and are instrumental in the healing process.
As a private, not-for-profit, charitable animal welfare organization, we rely on the community to help us fulfill our mission of finding a loving home for all the dogs and cats in our care and promoting responsible pet ownership and spay/neuter programs.From in-shelter support, to at-home foster care, volunteers are needed in every part of the work we do. There are several different opportunities to get involved as a volunteer such as becoming part of our Chefs for Pets, Playing4Life, Kitty Grooming and Basic Obedience Training programs, just to name a few. You can also join our team of foster heroes and help a homeless pet in your own home!
