The ASPCA has announced the grand opening of their Community Veterinary Center in Liberty City in partnership with Miami-Dade Animal Services and Miami-Dade County. The ASPCA Community Veterinary Center brings affordable and accessible veterinary services to pets and pet owners in Miami-Dade County, including the Liberty City area – a critically underserved community with limited access to veterinary care.
Through the opening of this new Center, the ASPCA aims to create better access to services for pet owners and improve the health and welfare of dogs and cats in Liberty City. The Center offers a variety of partially and fully subsidized services to companion animals, including preventive and basic veterinary care, such as vaccinations, minor infections and surgical procedures, and spay and neuter surgeries. The Center will have a meaningful, direct impact on improving the lives of thousands of animals each year.
Making veterinary services both accessible and affordable is key to keeping pets healthy and safe in their homes.
The work in Liberty City is part of a larger effort by the ASPCA to develop national initiatives that serve the most vulnerable animals and keep pets in their homes where they belong. This includes a $45M commitment that the ASPCA announced in June 2019 to help low income pet owners in New York City. The ASPCA is continuing to develop new programs that provide access to basic veterinary care in underserved communities, a critical aspect to preventing shelter relinquishment and keeping pets and families together.
