Meow Mobile Price Change

As of August 1, 2021, the price to spay/neuter a pet cat under the present ALEXANDER FAMILY FOUNDATION GRANT will be $40.00 for Cat Network members and non-members. This grant includes the rabies vaccine and the FVRCP vaccine.

Prices have gone up on many of the supplies we use to give the best possible care your beloved cats. We do not want to lower our standards, so we must raise our prices.

When the grant ends (don’t know exactly when…), we will return to the normal price of $65 for pet (no vaccines included) and $95 for the pet package (vaccines, ear cleaning, nail trim included)

It is still a GREAT deal!

Thank you for your understanding,

The Miami Meow Mobile Team  

Special Pricing Available on the Meow Mobile

Wonderful news.. We have been the beneficiary of donations from some of our donors which will afford us the opportunity to be able to fund surgeries on the Meow Mobile at a discounted price.

SPECIAL PRICING ONLY AVAILABLE ON MEOW MOBILE and only while funds are available.

PETITION: Prosecute Cheryn Smilen for Starving to Death 27 Cats

Cheryn Rochelle Smilen, of Smilen Cats, was arrested on February 16, 2018 for starving 18 cats to death. However, due to her cruelty the death toll has now unfortunately risen to 27. She abandoned the cats in an efficiency apartment, neglecting them inside small cages and depriving them of food and water for weeks. Out of sheer desperation the few surviving cats managed to stay alive by feeding off the corpses of the dead ones. The neighbors who resided in the vicinity smelled the odor of decomposition emanating from the efficiency and finally contacted the police. Three of the cats that were removed from this house of horrors were unfortunately euthanized due to their irreversible condition. Cheryn was arrested and charged with 18 counts of felony animal cruelty, but 3 days later was freed on $18,000 bond. Her first hearing date is scheduled for March 19, 2018. Her Miami Dade Court Case number is: F-18-003300

In the event that you believe that justice must be sought for these poor animals, we encourage you to please sign this petition. The petition will be sent to the State Attorney of Miami-Dade County, Katherine Fernandez Rundle, asking her to prosecute Cheryn Smilen to the fullest extent of the law for this atrocity.
