PetsTrust Animal Shelter Sit-In

PetsTrust Animal Shelter Sit-InOctober 5 – 7 – Miami Dade Animal Services, 7401 NW 74 Street, Miami

The goal of Pets’ Trust Miami is to stop the killing of 20,000 adoptable dogs and cats in Miami-Dade County each year. On October 5th pm Michael Rosenberg will be “checking in” to Miami Dade County Animal Services where he will live in a cage among homeless dogs and cats to spread a message of awareness that we need to vote for YES for #240 on Nov. 6th. Pets’ Trust Miami Founder, Michael Rosenberg, is a man of his word and truly a dog’s (and cat’s) best friend. He is spending this weekend in a cage at Miami-Dade Animal Services on behalf of the Pets’ Trust ballot measure #240 to address the plight of overpopulated, abandoned and homeless pets. Rosenberg will be surrendered (like thousands of unwanted pets each year) and housed in a concrete, chain-link cage for two nights, while Animal Services steps up adoption efforts with a weekend goal of finding “forever homes” for the nearly 600 abandoned pets currently in the shelter. Animal Services is reducing adoption fees to $25 on October 6 & 7, 2012. Adoptions and visitation hours throughout the weekend, October 6 & 7, 10:00am-4:00pm.
