Stray Aid offers affordable spay and neuter services for South Florida
As our troubled economy is making it harder for pet owners to do the right thing and have their pets spayed and neutered, South Floridians are lucky to have the organization Stray Aid to help. Offering low cost spay and neuter as well as rescue and adoption services, it is a lifesaver for animals.
We are in the process of providing Kuranda beds for every kennel run at Broward County Animal Care & Regulation. Katia Medina, who volunteers at BCACR started with the idea and we quickly jumped on board to help accomplish her wish.
“Most Unique” at Vintage Motorcycle Show
This 1950 Imme motorcycle was winner of the “Most Unique” award Jan. 30 at the vintage motorcycle show in Dania Beach. Made in Germany, the Imme was special for many reasons but one of its oddest features is that it carried a spare wheel and tire.
The Antique Motorcycle Club of America Everglades Chapter brought 87 splendid old motorcycles to the competition, part of the Dania Beach Art & Antique Festival.
Stray Aid & Rescue participates to raise money to bring a mobile spay/neuter clinic to the tri-county area.

They’ve been conducting yard sales and other fundraisers so the pooches no longer have to use towels spread out on concrete floors, said Diane Fraser, the organization’s founder.
Since taking on the project this spring, the group needs 30 beds to meet its goal of filling all 97 kennel runs at Broward County Animal Care & Regulation’s shelters in Pompano Beach and at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
Dog Days of Summer
Counting sheep (or maybe cats) just got better for the dogs at Broward County Animal Care and Regulation Division animal shelters in Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach. That’s because several special Kuranda beds were recently delivered to the animal shelters as part of a donation by Stray Aid & Rescue in Fort Lauderdale. (Read more…)

I Found a Kitten, Now What Do I Do?
First, assess the condition of the kitten. If you think the kitten needs medical attention, take it to your veterinarian as soon as possible. If you are not sure, you will feel better, once it is checked out by a medical professional. (Read more…)
