Commissioner McGhee

The Miami-Dade County Commission approved on December 15 legislation sponsored by Commissioner Kionne L. McGhee to finally meet the county’s no kill goal for its shelter. The legislation known as the “Save Charlie Act” ends all euthanasia in the shelter, except in cases where an animal with a poor prognosis has proven to be dangerous for rehabilitation or is terminally suffering from a condition that causes physical pain or distress itself with comprehensive veterinary care and ensures that the district protects and cares for all animals that have been confiscated in the animal shelters operated by the district for the duration of their confiscation.

In 2013, the county adopted the “No Kill” goal as part of a strategic action plan that has dramatically reduced euthanasia in its shelter and quality veterinary care through a combination of pet adoption events, inexpensive spay and neuter clinics, and partnerships with animal rescue organizations Animals in the shelter.

“It has been seven years since the No-Kill Goal was set and while there has been great strides since then, it is time to fully achieve it and this will take us to the next level to officially become a No -Kill protection community, “said Commissioner McGhee.
