The amount of animals abused every day in America is astounding, the amount of cats and dogs that don’t have a voice nor someone to come save them is just as astounding. Animals can’t scream for help, they can’t knock on a neighbors door for help, unless someone witnesses the abuse those animals suffer in silence as the abusers go about their daily lives with no remorse nor penalty for their crimes and yes they are crimes against the law and against humanity itself.
This great organization “Everglades Angels Dog Rescue” is doing some amazing things and the people involved give more of themselves than they have to, I’ve seen it first hand and was very impressed. From the dozens of success stories shown on the pictures on the walls or just seeing the animals in their facility, you can see that they have been rescued and the caring that comes from these great people that work and run the rescue fills me heart.
We need more organizations like this to protect these animals, give them loving homes and continue to do so. We can only hope that the offenders pay for their criminal actions, such people that abuse an animal will surely abuse a women or man, a child and the elderly, its a pattern that cannot be ignored.
I am including some information from their website and I urge for those in Florida and beyond to show them some support, they need a large piece of land to house all these animals and continue to fight the good fight. https://evergladesangelsdogrescue.org
From the site:
Everglades Angels Dog Rescue, a 501c3 charity is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization started Feb. 14, 2014. Our mission is to end the suffering of thousands of abandoned pet Angel Dogs™, feral and breeding packs of Angel Dogs™, by physical rescue & rehoming. Our organization is unique because our dedication to the truly in need, with no shelter, food and basic chance of survival. We seek out the tortured, sick and debilitated Angel Dogs™, in the most remote areas of the everglades in Florida.
We are a 100% all-volunteer, nonprofit organization. Also a non-kill rescue. We don’t own a facility, pay salaries or rent facilities. Every penny we raise goes towards vetting, boarding, feeding and other direct expenses for the benefit of the Angel Dogs™ we rescue.
We rescue Angel Dogs™ dumped far away from what once was their home. Dumped by former owners, they begin the ultimate night-mare in the everglades. The first day of life alone is a scary mystery and curiosity occupies most of their day. By night, they are wondering when their family will come back for them. They are hungry and tired… Darkness comes and the fear of the unknown makes them shake and cower deeper into the glades. Hundreds of heart worm transmitting mosquitos and toxic fire ants are biting, the fiery pain is endless.
Ticks crawl up their legs and burrow into their skin, injecting bacteria that will infect the Angel Dogs™ with tick diseases like Anaplasmosis and Lyme disease. The deadly tick disease Bayesian is becoming ever more prevalent. Wildlife, Burmese pythons and rattle snakes pick up their scent. If they are not preyed upon the first night, the morning sun rises and the helpless Angel Dogs™ search again in vain for their families. There is no food and the only water is in dangerous scum covered, alligator filled canals. Hunger and dehydration sets in and a slow torturous death begins. The survival of these struggling Angel Dogs™ lies only with rescuers like Everglades Angels Dog Rescue, that get out and search for the Angel Dogs™ lost in the glades.
One day can easily mean the difference between life and death. Rescue means the end of agony, so horrendous it steals their soul and leaves them with a blank stare, unable to walk from fear. To date, we have saved 273 everglades abandoned Angel Dogs™, fully vetted them, socialized, micro-chipped, vaccinated and found them the very best homes possible. Our volunteers are truly unwavering angels.
Our mission, aside from the physical rescue, vetting, socialization and homing of the Angel Dogs™, is to educate the public and bring aware-ness of the tragedy of everglades abandonment and the sheer torture these Angel Dogs™ endure from humanity at its worst.
