The ASPCA Community Veterinary Center, built in partnership with Miami-Dade County and to be operated by the ASPCA, will be a 7,000 square-foot facility, located at 1320 NW 62ndStreet in Liberty City, a neighborhood within the City of Miami.
The Center will provide subsidized and low-cost primary pet care services* to the animals within our geographic focus area of Liberty City. However, services will be available to Miami-Dade County pet owners. The goal of the center is to provide veterinary services and support to pet owners, so we can keep people and their pets together, as well as reduce the number of pets at-risk in Miami-Dade County. This veterinary center will not accept animals for surrender and will not adopt animals out.
*The ASPCA offers low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter surgery for pets of qualifying residents of Miami-Dade County. As an organization, we recognize that accessible and affordable veterinary care and spay/neuter is an important part of creating a healthy community for cats and dogs. Therefore, the ASPCA will be providing subsidized primary pet care and spay/neuter services directly to underserved communities and animals at the ASPCA Community Veterinary Center in Liberty City.
Primary pet care (PPC) is a group of services provided by the ASPCA that includes a thorough examination and medical history, preventative and prophylactic treatments (vaccines, deworming), microchip implantation, screening tests (FeLV/FIV tests, Heartworm tests, fecal tests) and other diagnostics that are non-invasive and do not require sedation, as well as treatment for conditions that can be resolved with reasonable resources. The range of PPC services provided by the ASPCA depends on the specific community’s needs. All medical evaluations and treatments take place during an office visit with no holding or hospitalization of patients. Humane euthanasia when necessary to decrease suffering and allow owners to make compassionate end-of-life decisions for their pets is also provided. Additional services to be provided, if any, shall be determined after the veterinary center is operational.
