My story

ADOPTER AND/OR FOSTER NEEDED

Michelle's Story:

Michelle and her son were dumped in the Redland and taken in by an older gentleman who took care of them best he could. However, that gentleman needed to sell his home to downsize and could not take his beloved animals with him. He sold the home and was promised by the new owners Michelle and her son could stay on the property and would be taken care of. HOWEVER, new owners failed them both and left their gate open intentionally so they would leave and never come back. That was in 2017, immediately we had to step into action. THERE WAS NO WAY WE WOULD ALLOW THEM to freely roam knowing the horrors of Redland Florida for dumped animals. Both were taken to vet, checked out fine and unfortunately we had to place them in boarding. Later in the year of 2017, they had the opportunity to go out of state to a no kill humane society to be placed for adoption. However, it did not work out and they were not treated with respect and two of our dedicated board members went to Minnesota twice and brought back three of our babies. No, we will not name them and no we have never sent another dog to them. Because of the entire experience, Michelle has needed to go to training but unfortunately, most people do not understand that training is needed which is also another way of vetting a dog behaviorally just not medically. TRAINING with Heather Deeley Michelle has been in board and train with respected certified animal trainer Heather Deely. She has made amazing strides during the last three weeks. Learning how to get in a car and not be anxious, she is leashed trained, learning how to trust other dogs (she did live with her son and a new puppy on the property, we took all three), learning how to trust humans, period. Right now, not good with children or cats we don't believe this is something that would last forever, but right now, Michelle needs the right adopter/foster that can understand her needs as a dog that has lived her entire life outside with the exception of being picked up by us. BUT she has been in boarding ever since and it's killing her and our board. To make her go back in to boarding means, without a doubt she will regress and all of the time, effort and money put forward for this snuggle bunny will be loss. Unfortunately, she cannot be adopted out of state and we need an adopter that's no less than 2-3 hours away. She is also available for fostering. Michelle comes with free training sessions one on one with her trainer. Michelle will also come with flea/tick preventive and heartworm medication.

More about this rescue

On June 28, 2015 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.

The focus of the Redland Rock Pit Abandoned Dogs Project, Inc. is trifold:

1. The ongoing education of the public on the appropriate care of dogs.

2. To feed and provide initial emergency care for abandoned and free roaming dogs while promoting their safe capture and transfer to reputable non-profit rescue organizations for re-homing.

3. To bring awareness to the plight of the free roaming dogs in Miami-Dade County Florida.
