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.
