In an effort to help reduce the pet overpopulation problem in the Southeast Florida region, five animal shelters that are part of the Southeast Florida Spay/Neuter Coalition will be hosting their second annual “Beat the Heat Spay/Neuter Week.”
The event takes place February 18 - 23 and is for felines eight weeks of age or older who are free-roaming, feral or lucky enough to have a home.
The goal of the group is to collectively sterilize 1,000 cats during this time frame. The cost will be just $15 per cat and includes spay/neuter, rabies vaccination, and FVRCP.
While kittens are cute, the fact is there are simply too many unwanted cats and not enough homes.
Only with your help can we reduce the number of unwanted cats entering shelters.
Appointments are necessary, and you must be a resident of one of these counties to participate, so please contact the shelter near you to take advantage of this offer as space is limited.

Each shelter is independent and not affiliated with one another, however they are coming together to help promote this important message. Pet overpopulation is something we can control, but it will take help from every one to make a difference.
