"Your new life starts now. The bad is all behind you."
Our founder, Amy Roman, and our super dedicated team of volunteers have been whispering those words to every animal we've rescued since September 21, 2011, the day that Amy first answered the call to help feed homeless animals in rural Miami. Amy was compelled to make a difference toward ending the neglect and abuse of our precious animal companions, man’s best friend, and 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida was born.
· We’ve rescued, revived and rehomed close to 4,000 dogs (and 90+ cats!) who have been abused, abandoned, starved and left to fend for themselves along with hundreds of others that are dumped every day in the Everglades and SE Florida.
· In Memory of Patterson: Sweet Patterson represents hundreds of dogs in Miami and so many of our rescue stories. Sadly, our help came too late for Patterson. After saying our heartbreaking goodbyes to him, we are more determined than ever to continue saving lives of the hundreds of abandoned animals.

· Happy Adoptions For every tragic loss, we have many, many more happy stories. They are all special and our hearts overflow with joy and happiness when we find a “forever home” for our rescues. Here are just a few that stand out:
Jelly Bean was abandoned by her owners at a boarding facility. 100+ stepped in and cared for and boarded this gorgeous girl for 3 years until she found her forever home:
Blind and left chained to an abandoned building in Little Haiti, watch Frances’s rescue and her six-month journey to adoption.
· Raising Awareness: We educate children by speaking at schools and local libraries. We educate the public through local media, our website, Facebook & Instagram.
· Helping Others: We share our donated pet food with other small rescue groups & pet owners who are struggling financially.
