Walk distance: 5.8km (3.5 Miles)
Over 3,500 dogs and 90 cats have been rescued by our group in the Everglades area of Florida (Florida City, Homestead and Redlands) and the surrounding areas of SE Florida. These animals have been abandoned by their previous owners and left alone to fend for themselves. Most are starving, full of ticks and at risk for several tick-borne diseases, heartworm, the elements and the wildlife and that is IF a speeding car does not hit them first. We strive to bring awareness to the severity of the problem we have with countless starving, abandoned animals on the streets of the Everglades area.
Their mission is to rescue them, bring them back to health, and show them that not all humans are bad, and that love and a warm bed are just around the corner. Beyond that, we work to raise awareness about this brutal reality happening right in our community, with the hope that our message will result in alternative solutions and more responsible and humane decisions by pet owners.
We are a 501c (3) organization, fully dependent on community support to fund our rescues and veterinary bills for these desperate pups. Please help us make a difference by donating, adopting, fostering and being a voice for these helpless animals.
WE CAN’T DO THIS ALONE. THERE IS POWER IN NUMBERS!
We encourage our colleagues to donate $15 to the office charity when registering for the walk.
Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our amazing volunteers, 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida is able to help save the lives of hundreds of helpless animals each year. We offer many volunteer opportunities and we welcome animal lovers with compassionate hearts to become a part of this rewarding effort.
