INCREDIBLE NEWS! Yesterday at the government center, County Commissioners voted unanimously 13-0 to add the Pets' Trust initiative to the voters ballot. A tremendous THANK YOU to Michael Rosenberg who, like a dog with a bone, would not let go and met with commissioners right up to the vote. (Of course he had a secret weapon, a powerful lobbyist--Pepe Sal).
Read the Miami Herald article "Puppy Power Wins at Miami-Dade Commission".
Many thanks to all of you that took the time to write or call county commissioners with your support for the Pets Trust. The goal is to have voters decide on this important issue!
What's next? Well the hardest work is ahead of us--winning votes from residents. This will take significant planning, meetings, and volunteers leading up to November 6.

WHAT IS PETS TRUST
Initiative where for 5 cents a day, we can save 20,000 healthy, adoptable dogs and cats from euthanization at county shelter. This will be accomplished through education and prevention programs to help pet owners with specific issues so they are not turning in their pets at high kill shelter. These include programs on dog training, low cost vet care, low cost spay/neuter clinics, and numerous education programs. There are SOLUTIONS!
