MIAMI-DADE, Fla., June 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Miami-Dade Animal Services will be holding very special adoption events on Sunday, June 10, and Monday, June 11, 2012, joining animal shelters across the U.S. who have taken the pledge not to kill any savable animals for Just One Day.
Adoption Specials include: Dogs $11
Cats/kittens $6 (2 for 1 special)
If you would like to help Miami Dade Animal Services make this the safest day for shelter pets in the history of the Miami-Dade County, please e-mail your name and complete contact info (including phone) to: [email protected]
For Just One Day, "Euthanasia Technicians" will put down their syringes and pick up cameras. Instead of injecting animals with lethal doses of sodium pentobarbital, they will photograph them and post them on the Internet, on Facebook, on twitter. On June 11, 2012, they will market their animals to the public, they will reach out to rescue groups, they will host adoption events with discounted rates, they will stay open for extended hours, and they will ask their communities to help them empty the shelter the good way.
Instead of going into body bags in freezers, the animals will go out the front door in the loving arms of families. At the end of the day, the shelters will be emptier than when the day started. And, no one will have had to die in order to make that happen. To help them succeed, the No Kill Advocacy Center, Animal Ark and Animal Wise Radio are teaming up to offer shelters the tools they need to be successful.
