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.

🆘🆘🆘

RESCUE NEEDED

These dogs have been roaming in Redland for 3 days now. The female (black dog) is in heat and the white/black one is injured

Female was skittish at first, but we were able to get close to her, both dogs are dog friendly. The male does not come close to us, but we cannot pick up one dog without the other

At this time we need a reputable rescue to take these dogs OR fosters able to open their heart and home to help them
We have too many dogs under our care, but we cannot leave these ones abandoned any longer. Can you help? 

They will also need medical sponsors as our funds have been depleted due to the increase amount of medical cases we have taken on recently 

Please 🙏 they deserve a fair chanceImage attachmentImage attachment

Little chickens nuggets checking in 😊 these sweet pups have been dewormed, microchipped and had a lengthy spa day; fleas have been removed from their fragile bodies. 
They are feeling a lot better today 🥰 they are about 4lbs each. We are happy to know they finally have a chance to find loving furever homes.

We thought they were chickens running in the street!!

While feeding last night in Hialeah Gardens, these three babies were seen from afar running in the street but we thought they were chickens 😩 until we saw a Good Samaritan start picking them up and putting them in his truck. The last one had to be caught with cat food by Leigh. After talking to the gentleman, they were not his dogs but didn’t want them to get hurt. He also agreed to give them to us! Welcome these three to our family!

Please help us help them!

Its almost Easter, that time of year when many parents buy their children live “Easter bunnies.” But many dont understand the needs of rabbits and the 10+-year commitment. So every year, thousands of baby rabbits (and chicks and ducks) are purchased as Easter gifts only to be abandoned or left at shelters in the days, weeks and months that follow Easter.

Most children want a companion they can hold, carry and cuddle, but rabbits are fragile, ground-loving creatures who break easily when dropped. As prey animals, they can be skittish and children can grow bored of a companion that often doesnt like to be picked up.

Rabbits can be excellent companions (I adopted 2), but before you commit, join me for my next FREE virtual Bunny Basics class to get info on the care and behavior of these comical, quiet creatures and get all your questions answered.

Please share this so we can reach people all over! Thanks!

Shared in hopes of more Permanent foster or adopter !! 🙏🏻🙏🏻

He is a beautiful pup and you are a wonderful person to care

At first I thought the dog’s name was Ricky. I hope they ensure he ends up in a safe situation. It sounds like they’ll do that.

SHARING TO HELP THIS BABY FIND A LOVING HOME.

He looks like my Daisy, I'm praying for him 🙏

Magneto says HI! 💗
Redland Rock Pit Abandoned Dogs Project, Inc. 501c3 found me starved, covered in fleas, anemic, loaded with parasites, a tail infection, and heartworm positive. I’ve gained over 15 lbs while with my crystal lake family & I’m no longer anemic. 

Ditch the parasites ✅

Improve lab work ✅

Neuter ✅

Tail amputation ✅

Heartworm treatment - NEXT!

This handsome boy is strong! ❤️

LATE NIGHT RESCUE ❤️

www.facebook.com/100051167048498/posts/488241699558061/?d=n

A plea for help was posted Monday morning for mom and pups in Florida City; this morning we were finally able to make contact with the owner

We drove to their location this evening and we saved this lovely family. Puppies are loaded with parasites 😕 this family will be vetted immediately. Per owner these poor animals have never been indoors, the backyard has been their “home”

We are thankful not only because they are safe, but also because we have incredible volunteers that are willing to save a life no matter how early or late it is

Please consider making a donation 🙏 we thank you in advance for your assistance and kindness!!!
