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.

BROWARD COUNTY FLORIDA

Please meet Storm, 12 months old, in tact, Australian Shepherd.  We normally don’t take owner surrenders but a committed foster/volunteer asked us to take him.  He’s being kept outside 24 hours a day.  We need either another rescue to take on and/or a foster.  No he is not trained but a full cattle dog that needs to work.  WE NEED THE COMMUNITIES HELP TO HELP HIM.

And those people who buy puppies in the road are the sane ones who will dump them in the streets!

Should be outlawed , do they have a permit to do this ? If pups not vaccinated owners should fined . This is the crazy shot that goes on in Banana Republics!! Oh but forgot we are talking Mia Dade where county government doesn’t care!

Horrible. I follow you on FB even though I’m here in Clearwater. Keep up your amazing work

This is terrible. How can we put a stop to it?

Makes me sick!!!

Unbelievable!!! Governor Ron DeSantis please do SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!!!

🤮

His so-called owner sent him to boarding and never picked him up 😡 Lady released him several times because she couldn’t keep him and didn’t know what to do with this dog, but he kept coming back.  Can you imagine how depressed and alone he must have been feeling all those times he was thrown out?

She kept him in the backyard for over a year.
He is very matted, dirty and smells like motor oil 🥲 he has an ear infection which needs to be assessed and treated 
He does have a microchip, but of course is not registered; Jacob was unable to obtain any information 

We are taking this boy into our rescue; we will give him all the time he needs to decompress and gain confidence. We will also give him the medical attention he deserves

Unfortunately, it’s extremely easy to leave your pets behind in South Florida. But for these discarded pets is heartbreaking and inhumane. 

Welcome to our family KOBE, you will NEVER, ever be abandoned, neglected or unwanted again 🙏

I am sickened with the human race. Thank you for saving this baby. Donated.

I can't believe the amount of dogs that are being turned into shelters! What happened to forever??? Where did the love for them go?? My heart breaks for all of them and especially the ones who are taken to kill shelters and not even given a chance to be adopted! This world seems to have lost it's compassion and that makes me so angry!

Humans are the cruelest creatures on earth!! Praying for this baby!!!

Thank y’all for helping this precious dog & shame on FLORIDA & humans who have no compassion animals 🙏🙏🐶

Absolutely heartless and cruel 💔😢 I hope they find the owners and fine them. Also register them never to own or adopt pets ever again 😠 Thank you for rescuing this sweet boy 🙏😇🙌🐾💙 Shame on the Boarding Facility for just letting him go on his own 😔 Praying for this precious boy to find a loving home he so deserves 🙏❤

I will never understand how humans can be so cruel. Praying gor this baby and all creatures and all of you who sacrifice so much to help them.

He looks like a little diamond in the rough thank you for rescuing him

Luz Darcy Cardona Maritza E Bedoya I feel like we could collect donations, get him to a groomer and fostered??

I have a few things to donate...not sure if your organization can pick them up. I live in Fort Lauderdale. If not, let me know where I can deliver.

Wtf of a boarding place was that 🤯🤬 write a google review for them so no one will ever book their dog there again!!! Shame on them. Let’s make them go out of business

Are they sure nothing happened to the original owners the reason he was never picked up?

What breed is he?

Thank you for saving him. I had to put both my dogs down in the past 7 months and this makes me so angry. I am in tears over this! ❤️🐶❤️

OMG that just breaks my heart what people do to their animals 🙏🙏🙏🙏

Thank you for rescuing this sweet baby. People can be very cruel, I don’t understand why or how someone can do that to their pet! PLEASE SHARE FOR DONATIONS THE OWNERS LEFT THIS DOG IN BOARDING AND NEVER CAME BACK. THANK YOU

I love him 💕 Thank You for all you do to save those precious souls 🐾💞🐾

Sickening. Failed by multiple humans… unbelievable that the boarding facility didn’t take the dog to a rescue or shelter.

Dbl Shame on the owner and shame on the boarding person.

Thank you for rescuing him. Hate how some people treat animals

I can’t even imagine how scared and confused he must have been. Thank you for taking care of this sweet pup. 🙏

So sad some people are very cruel and they should never be able to have any animals. Thank you for everything you do for the animals!!

So sad and disgusting what this poor dog has endured. On to a better life for Kobe!💕🙏🏼❤️

Thank you for what you do. We monthly donate because I know it never stops for you. Thank you, from Minnesota with tons of love ❤️

This is absolutely horrific.. literally in tears.. Thank you for saving this baby ♥️

Bless you for taking him in. 🙏 ♥️. You should report his former owners for a animal cruelty

ROCCO located in Boca Raton. Needs foster! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Please meet Rocco! He’s been with us since. One day we got a call from a trucker at the rock pit saying there was a dog on one of the truck lots that had a nasty neck wound. Immediately, we went there and found Rocco. His neck was horrible. He also could not walk very well. Since then, his neck has healed, he had a FHO but needed a revision to have another piece of a bone removed as he was still in pain and the first surgery wasn’t done correctly.

Rocco needs a foster home near Calusa Animal Hospital. You see, hes been there for at least the last 4 months for physical therapy and it would need to continue weekly.

Rocco is about 2-3 years old, neutered, up to date on vaccines and is friendly with EVERYONE. He is good with other animals, cats are unknown.

He needs a foster home IMMEDIATELY. Please contact us by completing a foster application.

We can definitely use every ounce of support 🙏 in order to give more animals a better life.

Please meet Rosita and Marilyn, these beautiful pups were discarded in Redland. We always wonder why we’re called the human race, there’s nothing humane in the treatment of animals 😡 Animals only know how to love unconditionally, these girls have spent the beginning of their lives unwanted, neglected, struggling, wondering if they would ever be treated with dignity and respect.

We networked them and there was no response. Sadly, all the rescue groups are overcrowded, and many pets are not getting a second chance

While Mara was at this feeding spot leaving food for them, the owner of the property asked her to remove the dogs immediately. As a matter of fact, one of the drivers took one of the dogs and was in route to dump her somewhere else. If Mara, our volunteer was able to take both dogs, the property owner was going to ask the driver to bring her back.
We only had one shot at this, we couldn’t let these heartless cowards dump her in a secluded area, impossible for us to find.

Please watch the video of the driver bringing her back 😡 all this insanity is “normal” in these dumping grounds. People do not understand how much they are hurting these dogs

We need help, these dogs need help 🙏 if there’s a reputable rescue that can make room for them, PLEASE reach out.

“Dogor” An 18,000 Year-Old Puppy That Was Discovered In The Siberian Permafrost. He’s So Well Preserved That His Nose And Whiskers Are Still Mostly Intact. DNA sequencing has been unable to identify the animal as either a dog or a wolf.

The specimen was named Dogor by scientists, with the word meaning "friend" (Cyrillic: Догор) in the local Yakut language.
