Miami Realtors Awards Grant To Help Veterans Care For Pets

Local veterans will receive help in caring for their pets thanks to a $10,000 grant awarded by the MIAMI Association of REALTORS® (MIAMI) to the Miami-Dade County Animal Services (Animal Services) recently. MIAMI provided the grant through its participation in Florida Realtors’ 100 Years, 100 Families program, which supports local Realtor association charitable community efforts. MIAMI worked with Animal Services to create a customized “Patriot Pets program.” Needy veterans with pets can now utilize Animal Services’ many programs, which include pet vaccinations, pet microchips, off-site donations, pet retention and transfer of dog ownership “This grant money is going to go a long way to help South Florida veterans who do not have the resources to care for their pets properly,” said Coral Gables Realtor Christopher Zoller, the MIAMI chairman of the board.

MIAMI awarded Animal Services the grant money in January. MIAMI recognized the grant during its 2017 Inaugural & Awards Celebration on Feb. 3 at Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood. MIAMI handed a large presentation check to Animals Services Grants Coordinator Sandy Acosta-Cox in front of its newly installed leadership. Every year, Miami-Dade County Animal Services provides care and refuge for...
