Services include wellness vaccines and boosters, deworming, flea prevention, and referrals for low-cost or no-cost spay/neuter surgeries. It’s important to note that the WOW Mobile is closed from Thursday through Sunday and on all county-observed holidays.

The initiative targets underserved neighborhoods identified as veterinary deserts, providing much-needed support in areas with limited access to veterinary services. This outreach is crucial in maintaining the health of the community’s pets and preventing common diseases.

Support Through FoMA

These invaluable services are funded through a generous donation and grant from the Friends of Miami Animals Foundation Inc., which continues to support efforts to enhance the welfare of animals across the county. The WOW Mobile is a vital part of these efforts, extending healthcare access to pets that might otherwise go untreated.
