Redland Rock Pit Abandoned Dogs Project

About Us

What We Do

REDLAND ROCK PIT ABANDONED DOGS PROJECT was founded in 2015 after several animal lovers came together in response to a Facebook post about a dog held captive in a barbaric wire cage at a place referred to as the Rock Pit. This unfortunate incident brought awareness to the plight of these dogs, the area and to a woman who had been feeding and caring for the dogs for over ten years. After meeting with her, we decided to join forces and assist in her efforts to save these abandoned and free-roaming dogs.

Since then, our project has evolved to include many other volunteers who feed these dogs daily and search for reputable rescues to house these dogs. It is our hope that by doing so, we will be able to finally get them safely into rescue and eventually adopted into loving forever homes.
