Miami-Dade Animal Services and greenmonkey® invite cat lovers to celebrate International Yoga Day

MIAMI (June 14, 2017)

Cat lovers are invited to take a moment to "paws", relax and reflect with adorable cats from Miami-Dade Animal Services during Meowmaste: greenmonkey® Yoga with Cats on Wednesday, June 21 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. at the Miami-Dade Animal Services Pet Adoption and Protection Center, 3599 NW 79 Avenue, Doral, FL 33122.

Led by a greenmonkey® yoga instructor, this special event allows participants to practice their downward-facing cat pose in a room full of adorable, free-roaming cats looking for loving homes. Show up for the yoga and go home with a four-legged cuddle companion; adoption fees are free for all cats and kittens.

RSVP is required and space is limited. Participants will need to bring their own yoga mat. A $20 donation to benefit the shelter’s cats is requested, payable at the door.
