MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami-Dade residents who have been putting off getting their dogs and cats spayed or neutered because of the cost will get a break this May.

The county’s Animal Services Department, with the support of the Cat Network and Commissioner Audrey Edmonson, is offering the surgery for free every Saturday in May for dogs and on May 26th for cats.

Through funding received from the ASPCA®, free rabies, canine distemper and feline upper respiratory vaccinations will be administered to all pets presented for surgery. Pets will also receive flea and tick preventive and a complimentary microchip, collar and ID tag. The estimated value of the services and products for each dog is over $400 and over $250 for each cat.

The surgeries and shots will be given at the Joseph Caleb Center located at 5400 NW 22nd Avenue in Miami.

Appointments are required and can be scheduled by calling 3-1-1.
