Miami-Dade County Animal Services will transport homeless cats to Maryland to be adopted into new homes


       

(Miami, February 21, 2014) – In a continued effort to save the lives of thousands of homeless pets in the County and as part of the ASPCA community partnership, Miami-Dade County Animal Services (ASD) and the Last Chance Animal Rescue of Maryland have teamed up to transport 61 Miami felines to Maryland for a chance at loving, permanent homes in the Old Line State.

The cats will begin their journey north to Maryland on Saturday, February 22, at 12:00 p.m. from the Miami-Dade County Animal Services shelter located at 7401 NW 74 Street, Miami, FL.  Last Chance Animal Rescue will work with Petsmart in Maryland to find homes for the fabulous felines.

“These pet transports are just one example of the commitment and the efforts ASD has made to save the lives of the abandoned animals in its care and establish Miami-Dade County as a No Kill community,” said Alex Muñoz, Director of Miami-Dade Animal Services Department. “Thanks to the incredible support and participation of organizations such as the Last Chance Animal Rescue in Maryland we have been able to save the lives of thousands of cats and dogs,” added Mr. Muñoz.
