Miami-Dade County Animal Services Department (Animal Services) and Friends of Miami
Animals Foundation Inc. (FoMA) are partnering to launch Wellness of Wheels (WOW), a mobile
pet veterinary service, through FoMA's donation of a Mobile Wellness Unit and generous
$500,000 contribution.
With the new Mobile Wellness Unit, Animal Services and FoMA aim to improve the wellbeing of
Miami-Dade County pets in need of wellness services at a time when many pet parents are
juggling finances to meet their basic necessities. Pets will receive free medical care through the
WOW unit including physical exams, wellness vaccines and boosters, heartworm and fecal
parasite screening, deworming, heartworm and flea/tick prevention, ear cleaning, nail trimming
and referrals for spay/neuter surgery or other needed medical services. FoMA will pay for one
year of staffing, equipment and supplies, and Animal Services will operate the WOW unit for two
additional years.
The WOW unit will be rolling into selected communities, including Miami Gardens, Little Havana,
Liberty City, Homestead, and the Redlands. Miami-Dade County pet owners will be able either
walk-in or schedule appointments for their pets by contacting 311.
"FoMA exists to save and improve the lives of homeless pets in Miami-Dade County. The best
way we can do that is to prevent pets from becoming homeless in the first place. Medical
concerns are among the leading reasons that owners surrender or abandon their pets, and if we
can instead help keep those animals in forever families that love them by supporting Animal
Services in this endeavor--that is absolutely achieving our mission,” said Yolanda Berkowitz,
FoMA Founder and President. “By providing free services for families who are struggling to
afford veterinary care through the mobile wellness unit, we are closing the gap for at-risk pets."
The WOW is one of several initiatives Animal Services and FoMA have partnered on to improve
the welfare of pets in Miami-Dade County.
