18 Dogs Rescued from Far Southwest Miami-Dade by Activists

Eighteen dogs, adults and puppies, were rescued from far southwest Miami-Dade County by activists over the weekend.

Sadly, it’s not uncommon for dog owners to release their pets in the Florida Everglades. Dog lover and rescuer Amy Roman goes there regularly – to save them.

“They’re suffering, there’s snakes, there’s speeding cars, I mean it’s torture for them. These dogs cannot fend for themselves,” said Roman, the president of 100+ Abandoned Dogs of the Everglades.

Some 50 volunteers corralled abandoned dogs during Roman’s operation on Saturday. They were taken to Imperial Animal Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, where they are being treated.
