Furry Fursday: Meet Amber

Senior seeking snuggles

July 28, 2016


Amber is an affectionate senior pet looking for a family who can help her come out of her shell. This 12-year-old kitty is a beautiful pet, inside and out. Her beautiful grey coat has tone of orange and brown and her eyes are a fabulous green! When you first meet her, she will hide in the nearest nook she can find and wait for you to introduce yourself and give her a loving pet. Once she gets to know you, she will come out and welcome all of your love and attention. And boy does Amber love to be petted! If you stop petting her, but leave your hand near, she will give you a little, toothless nibble asking you for more! Amber would love nothing more than to spend the rest of her life with a forever family who will help her let out her amazing purr-sonality. A family she can receive TLC from and give back unconditional love in return.

Free Spay/Neuter for low-income residents

Have you heard about the FREE spay and neuter services available for the pets of low-income residents of Miami-Dade? For a limited time, anyone actively receiving government assistance benefits(this includes WIC, SSI, Food Stamps and Medicaid) can get their dog or cat spayed or neutered absolutely FREE. This special offer includes the rabies vaccine with the surgery. These free services are available at the Miami-Dade County Community Spay Neuter Clinic in Cutler Bay located at 10700 SW 211 Street. The clinic is open Tuesday through Saturday and you can call 305-749-1854 or visit our website, www.humanesocietymiami.org, to make an appointment.

In addition to these free services for pets, community cats can be spayed/neutered at the clinic for free as well, no proof of government assistance required. What exactly is a community cat? Community cats are defined as un-owned, free roaming  cats whose “home” is within the community rather than in an individual household. This free sterilization service includes a FVRCP vaccination, a rabies vaccination if the cat is four months and or four pounds or older, and a left ear tip, which is used to identify fixed community cats. The community cats may be dropped-off between 7:00 am-10:00 am Tuesday-Saturday and no appointment is necessary. 

Visit www.humanesocietymiami.org for more information on these worthwhile services or to make an appointment.
