Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return

The free Trap-Neuter-Return Program is an effective and humane way to stabilize the cat population with free spay or neuter surgeries for community cats.

Miami-Dade County residents can use their own trap or request a trap from Animal Services Pet Adoption and Protection Center to capture the cat, then take it to the Pet Adoption and Protection Center. The cat will then be sterilized, will receive a rabies vaccine and the feline booster shot FRCPC and get an ear tip (to show that he or she has been sterilized).

You can then choose to have the cat returned to you or to the area where it was picked up. Cats not picked up from the Pet Adoption and Protection Center after several days will be released back to the community from which they came. Injured or diseased cats are not released back into the community.

Residents can also present community cats to local participating veterinarians for free as part of Animal Services' partnerships with the Miami Veterinary Foundation and the Humane Society of Greater Miami. Residents must schedule appointments directly with the veterinary provider of their choice.
