The Miami-Dade County Animal Services Department recently partnered with the ASPCA to open a community veterinary clinic in Miami's Liberty City neighborhood.
The ASPCA Community Veterinary Center brings affordable and accessible veterinary care in Miami-Dade County.
“Liberty City was a veterinary desert, with little access to care for residents’ pets," said Alex Muñoz, Director of Miami-Dade Animal Services. "As we serve Miami-Dade County’s pets and pet owners, we wanted to meet our residents where the need is greatest. Opening this clinic with the ASPCA will do just that.”
The new center will offer partially and fully subsidized basic and preventive care to companion animals including vaccinations, treatment for infections and other minor issues, in addition to spay/neuter surgeries.
“Making veterinary services both accessible and affordable is key to keeping pets healthy and safe in their homes,” said Matt Bershadker, ASPCA president and CEO. “Whether it’s providing vaccinations, flea and tick medication or minor medical care, the ASPCA Community Veterinary Center will play a vital role in preserving the loving and dependent bonds between Liberty City residents and their animals.”
The ASPCA Community Veterinary Center, located at 1320 NW 62nd Street in Miami’s Liberty City, will be open Tuesday through Saturday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Pets are seen by appointment only.
