HELP US SAVE THESE DOGS

Why We Need Your Help

We are a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization dedicated to saving animals in the Redland Rock Pit area of South Florida.

Redland, Florida is known to many as the agricultural side of South Miami-Dade where residents tour the bordering Everglades for some beautiful wildlife scenery.

For animal lovers, however, it is a very different story. It is known as the “dumping ground” for unwanted pets. The reality is, many individuals drive to a secluded area, open the car door, throw out their unwanted pet and then drive off.

Many of these loyal and loving dogs will run after the car in an attempt to catch their owner’s vehicle until they become exhausted and can’t run any further, leaving them confused, disoriented and lost.

These domesticated house pets are left to fend for themselves. The ones that are not killed by traffic are often poisoned, injured or shot by local workers and residents who feel they don’t belong in their neighborhood. Many starve to death because this is an agricultural area and there are no resources for them to survive.

For many of them that remain on the truckyards and the farms seeking human companionship, their bodies become ravaged by mosquitos, parasites, disease, and most will eventually succumb to death unless rescued.

Need immediate rescue.    Horseback riders found this beautiful dog in the East Everglades.   207 Ave and 136 Street.   She had recently given birth and was lactating.    The team of riders went into the wooded area and surrounding wetlands looking for her puppies for various days.   The neighbors have never seen her and repeated attempts to locate owners has not been successful.   She is very well mannered and finders cannot keep her.   Good Sam already have multiple dogs and cats.   Contact Yleana305-283-7118 if you can take her in.Image attachment

IVY-ROCK PIT SURVIVOR

IVY-ROCK PIT SURVIVORMiss Ivy’s start wasn’t the best. She was born along with three other siblings in a truck yard in the Redlands. Her father was killed by a truck, and then her mother was killed by a truck. Luckily the volunteers of the Redland Rock Pit Abandoned Dogs Project, Inc. 501c3 stepped in and took Ivy and her siblings to safety.

Upon intake, she had horrible skin and big, missing patches of hair. She was full of parasites as she had been living outside and eating whatever she could find- lizards, garbage, and scraps of food the guys would toss her.

But just like all of our other PPR dogs, Ivy knows her story isn’t dictated by the first few chapters. She has been fully vetted and is living the good life of cool A/C, soft beds, and two meals a day, every day in her foster home.

Ivy loves people and is a pretty laid back gal. She was relaxing by the lake when a row of ducks walked by causing a ruckus and she remained unfazed. She loves snuggles and belly rubs and cuddling.

MERLIN-Rock Pit Survivor (bait dog)

“‼️Important Read‼️ The top 2 excuses we get for people wanting to get rid of their animals are 1) having a baby & 2) moving. 

A message from one of our adopters who adopted Merlin, a dog that had probably zero experience with children prior to his new life. He was used for bait and left to die in the Redlands. 

“I never knew really what to expect, but I knew that Merlin was my first baby and It was my responsibility to teach him the proper way to love his new sister. 

We spent weeks in obedience training, had baby dolls, played YouTube videos with baby screams and cry’s and introduced each article of clothing to him when she arrived. With each day that passed he was able to get closer and closer to her and once they met the rest was history. 

Merlin has done a lot of things in his few years. He recovered from being a bait dog in fighting rings, going from 60 lbs to 109lb and from timid to a complete cuddle bug. He’s welcomed a countless amount of fosters into his own home, some of which never liked him but his love for everyone continued to grow bigger daily. Giving Merlin a little sister was the biggest blessing to happen to our family and watching their bond grow daily warms my heart. 

When you become a dog owner, you treat them as your child.  They deserve to be provided with the tools and path to success just like a child. A little love and guidance goes a long day. Here’s to another family against the statistics. 

Bully breeds and baby’s forever. ❤️”

Amazing story and so very true. I did the same many moons ago and it was so worth it. Nothing more beautiful than the bond between your fur-child and a newborn. Seeing them grow together it fills your heart. Great job and many blessing to you and your family for treating your fur-child as part of the family.🙏

Thank you for taking the time, and having the patience to do it the right way, with Merlin,shows what love, trust, can do, wish they could all find adopters and owners who feel that way, instead of the usual excuses to not value their dogs to want to put the effort in,to make any situation work for everyone.

Thank you for your story, it’s a beautiful one and definitely an inspiration to us all! Never give up on your pet, teach and be responsible! God bless you and your Family.

Love this story & Merlin’s happy ending ❤️❤️

Beautiful story!
