Billed as “Free First Friday,” the event takes place at Robbie’s Feed & Supply, 22390 SW 177th Ave., Miami. Organizers have said they alternate between cats and dogs per Friday, so be sure to check which pet is eligible on any given month.
Also, space is limited, so appointments are recommended. To reserve your pet’s spot, call 311. For more information on the Miami-Dade County Animal Services Department, click here.
