Here is a letter I wrote to the mayor of Miami about feral, or wild, domestic cats, and his response.
Dear Mr. Friedel:
Thank you for your e-mail regarding the feral cat population in
Miami-Dade County. It is encouraging to hear from a resident who is
concerned with the well-being of South Florida's visiting birds.
Miami-Dade County Animal Services currently offers free spay/neuter
services to Dade-County residents at the Spay/Neuter Clinic, located at
10700 SW 211 Street; on a first-come-first-serve basis. Unfortunately,
the department does not currently have the resources to trap feral cats.
At this time, our Animal Control Officers pick up stray dogs and
puppies, but not stray cats. While this may not ease your concern on
the issue, we are constantly re-evaluating our animal-control resources.
Again, thank you for your e-mail. We welcome the public's input on all
of Miami-Dade County's programs and services.
