It was a big dog party and a great dog party!
I want to officially thank Miami-Dade County Animal Services and our County Commissioner, Daniella Levine Cava, for a wonderful event - the Dogs of Summer:
Here are the results from the few hours this event was held:
ASD: 4 adoptions
Dogs in Crisis: 4 puppies, 1 adult dog and 1 cat
25 pets micro chipped
2 spay/neuter appointments made at the Humane Society
2 applications to foster dogs at This is the Dog organization
I am pleased that 25 more pets are now micro chipped - and the service was provided free of charge. Registered microchips will make a huge difference in reuniting these pets should they ever become lost or stolen from their homes.
I look forward additional similar events at our parks - another outstanding example of tri-city collaboration with our County Commissioner.
Thank you to Commissioner Levine Cava, Pinecrest Mayor Cindy Lerner, Cutler Bay Mayor Peggy Bell and PBay council member Tin Schaffer who participated in this event. Our very own adoptee Tim and our Bailey also participated along with my family.
Thank you everyone, the participants and event sponsors who worked to hard to make this event great. Thank you to Gary Alan Ruse and the Community Newspapers for getting the word out and keeping our community informed.
