Local pet activist spreads awareness
MIAMI (WSVN) -- A top dog is finally free after being caged for a cause.
Pets' Trust Miami founder, Michael Rosenberg, is out of the cage thanks to his sponsors, Friends Forever Humane Society.
The pet activist spent the entire weekend at Miami-Dade Animal Services to bring awareness to the pets trust ballot, measure #240. "We have a plan to spade/neuter in very high volume," said Michael Rosenberg, "60, 70, 80,000 animals a year, so they don't keep making so many animals that come here and get killed. It costs $300 to kill an animal and $60 to spade or neuter it."
Voting 'Yes' on Nov. 6 would allow free neutering, low cost veterinarian care and an education program for the community.
Animal services also reduced adoption fees to $25 to help with the weekend goal to find forever homes for the nearly 600 abandoned pets.
