They reported this to the Redland Rock Pit Abandoned Dog Project, and the volunteer group went to investigate. In Florida, outside of Miami, there are several areas where dogs are abandoned to die. People drive to rural areas south of Miami and dump unwanted dogs on the side of the road. This was recounted in “Part I: Volunteers feed and save abandoned, scared dogs — big and small — in Redland, Florida” and “Part II: The Solution.”
For the two dogs who were found there (see video), there is rescue interest. They were lucky to be caught and are at the Aussie Animal Clinic being vetted. They are both heartworm positive, so their medical needs are going to be expensive. So far, before any heartworm treatment, their bill is $600. The group is asking that people help by calling the vet and donating for Peter Pan and Wendy. 305-235-7339. There is rescue interest, but fosters are desperately needed!
The Redland Rock Pit group can only take the dogs when a rescue is willing to bring it into their organization. The Redland Rock Pit group does not have foster homes — their purpose is to feed the dogs to keep them alive until a rescue can be found for them. The volunteers just don’t have room in their homes for more dogs. The dogs are being fed, and the group is reaching out to rescues to take them.
