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.

Bless you this breaks my heart I'm in Ohio, if only I could help you 🙏

Florida's shame, the Redlands. How many dogs have died in the Redlands😢

Understand your mission, however if the wrong people see this she could end up in the wrong hands. It’s so sad. Thank you for taking care of them!

This is disgusting people dump defenseless dogs to fend bu themselves at a very busy road .How much lowest level the human beings can reach to

Hope that you can find someone to fetch her terrible.

Pup has a collar. Maybe she is lost not dumped.

Poor baby, breaks my heart.😞🥲

With the collar still on poor thing

A Good Samaritan contacted us yesterday after finding this homeless dog at the Rock Pit
He was very concerned because the road that she is on is very dangerous 🥺 this dog is underweight and terrified, there is no place to hide for her
We are asking, begging, pleading for help, please foster and give her the second chance she deserves

Please try and get her..You guys are the Best in your rescues!❤

Go rescue that dog, don't leave it out there.

I hope someone is at least feeding her

Poor thing looks so afraid and confused .. someone step up if I could I sure would .. this rescue can only do so much without fosters . I live in Orlando and send them food . And I live in 400 sq feet. This breaks my heart

Poor sweet baby!

🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

She can live with me...

All animals matter and deserve to be safe and protected and thrive.

You need a coat of armor sometimes because people don't always like what you have to say, SAY IT ANYWAY IF IT WILL HELP AN ANIMAL

Yes!!!!!Every living soul matters!

This is so true. I will feed an animal before I eat.

Truth!!!!

EVERY LIFE!!!!!

Thank You

Thanks for all you do !!

Cheryl, we do not know one another, but my dog, Jessie, was rescued by you guys 6 years ago. I was her foster, and I failed. She is my forever friend. All the pictures you posted of the dogs you have helped really touched me and so Jessie and I made a donation for your birthday. Happy Birthday! Have a joyful and celebrated day!

Happy Birthday Cheryl! Donated!

Happy birthday! What an amazing person you are, God bless you
