Furry Fursday: Meet Bess

'Paint me like one of your french girls.'

July 20, 2017

Meet Bess!

Bess is a 1-year-old Terrier Mix who was returned due to health reasons. However, now that Bess has overcome and healed from a broken back, she is ready to meet her new family!

This determined girl gets along great with other doggies and especially loved to wrestle with her roommate while they were both recuperating. Bess is a genuine darling who will greet you with some sweet kisses when you first meet her. This girl would especially enjoy cuddling up right next to you for your next movie marathon, provided that you have a few belly rubs to spare, of course. This sweetheart is only missing one thing, a family to return all the love she has to give! Come in to see her beautiful smile at the Soffer and Fine Adoption Center, and you won’t stop smiling yourself.


Free Spay/Neuter Services 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 currently receiving government assistance benefits(this includes WIC, SSI, Food Stamps and Medicaid) can get their dog or cat fixed 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.

This is a Miami-Dade Animal Services no kill project in partnership with the Humane Society of Greater Miami.
