Happy Endings


Beautiful “Amie” the terrier mix was rescued from the shelter as an itty-bitty puppy with demodex mange. She found her fur-ever home just weeks after she went into foster care with a wonderful family. She is happy & loves her big sis, Daisey. Here they are snuggling up together.. how cute is this?? πŸ™‚


Clover & Gemma were caught while trapping cats for a spay/neuter-release project we were doing thanks to a donation. They were trapped outside a warehouse in Pompano Beach living in truly sad conditions. One of their relatives had to be euthanized due to a horrible injury, and we wanted to make sure they would never know the life of a street cat ever again. Clover & Gemma got a truly happy ending when their foster family fell in love with them and decided to adopt both — together. πŸ™‚


While at the shelter to help another dog, our volunteer spotted Charlie and fell in love with him and worried about his future due to his cleft lip, so we took Charlie and his brother Ernie into the rescue. Charlie had his cleft lip repaired and found his loving, wonderful forever family with the DuBocqs — with a mama, a papa, and a big brother, Nugget. We are going to tell Charlie’s story with a blog post – soon, complete with after pix!


Ernie on Gotcha Day with his new mama, Hallie. Hallie calls Ernie the perfect puppy. We could not be happier for them. πŸ™‚
Ernie may get to be a therapy dog someday in the future!


Mae was found at about five weeks old, living on the street and suffering from a bad case of mange.Β She recovered quickly, then came down with a case of ringworm. Thankfully she had a wonderful adopter who was patient and waited for her recovery.Β She is now best friends with a big ol’ dog at her forever home. πŸ™‚


Marley was found living outside at a flea market as a tiny baby, hungry, flea-infested, and covered in mange.
Thankfully, as soon as he recovered he had a family that could not wait to take him home.
Congrats, Marley, you cute little oreo cookie!


Darly is Marley’s sister and found her forever home with her brother, below. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚


This super cute baby was found living outside a flea market at just 4 weeks old. He was adopted with his sister and is a beloved, well-cared-for pet now. πŸ™‚

Frankie was labeled as a terrier mix and sat in the shelter for over two weeks. We reserved him and when we picked him up were pleasantly surprised to discover that he is a pug mix – curly tail, underbite and all. Super playful & sweet, he quickly found adopters who had a pug/beagle mix named Roxy at home and could not wait to find a friend for her.
Congratulations Frankie — now Brodie! πŸ™‚


Gorgeous Mystic was a semi feral kitten who came around thanks to one of the “ambassador cats” in her foster home.
She was adopted and is treasured by her wonderful family who couldn’t believe their luck at finding a chocolate point Siamese kitten in rescue!


Misty is Mystic’s sister and was super terrified when she entered our rescue. On her first night in her forever home, however, she snuggled up on the couch with her adopters’ 3-year-old child and fell asleep. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚


Louie was at the shelter for almost three weeks! He had Lady Luck looking over him. Just two weeks in foster care and this happy, playful boy found his forever family with the Barcos. Congratulations!

Lucky, now Midgie, was rescued from the shelter with a fractured pelvis.
Her foster parents fell in love with her so she has already found her forever home!

Daisy & Duke were rescued from a very bad hoarding situation & adopted together! πŸ™‚

Lucky Gracie survived nearly 3 weeks during the height of the health crisis at Miami Dade Animal Services. She had quite the cold when we pulled her but recovered quickly and after two months of searching we found the very best home for her. Now she is the apple of her mama’s eye. She gets to go kayaking and to work and lives a happy, active life! Congrats to Heather & Gracie for finding each other. πŸ™‚

This gorgeous adult cat, Shelby, was lucky enough to find a forever home after being rescued from the street!

Nina’s is a story we are very proud of. πŸ™‚ She caught distemper during her time at the shelter (due to being left unvaccinated for 10 days since she was “a bite risk” — all 10 lbs of her!) and vet after vet turned us down to help her. Everyone recommended euthanasia. Her foster mom sat in the parking lot for a half-hour trying to decide if euthanasia was the right thing for that poor, sick girl or not and she ended up deciding another day wouldn’t hurt. She ended up making a complete recovery and found a wonderful home. This is Nina & her new daddy. She was scared of him for about 10 minutes but was playing with him by the time I left. He reports that she is doing great, making strides with new people, going to music festivals, and she is just a wonderful and healthy dog. πŸ™‚

Lizzy’s adorable baby, Calli – adopted!


Lizzy had 2 adorable tabby babies that looked like this, both in wonderful new homes.

Esme, now Meli, is in a wonderful new home – congrats, Alexis! πŸ™‚


Mia Bella, now known as Bella, was returned to the shelter in Miami not once but TWICE! After getting her home, we realized quickly that it was no fault of hers — she was a perfect, happy, sweet little dog. She instantly became best friends with her foster sisters & brother and proved herself to be a loving little lap dog. No dog should have to go through so many homes in such a short time.. She is only 1.5 yrs old! But we made sure we found a family who would love her and keep her forever. Congratulations to her new mama, Caren, and her new BFF, Luna. πŸ™‚

Max is a GEM of a dog. He arrived at MDAS on Valentine’s Day, which is why he was called Valentines there. And what a sweetheart he is! But for some reason, everyone looked right past him and soon his time was up. Good Karma stepped in on his last day and brought him home and discovered a loving, happy, energetic little pup. He found the perfect home, where he has a new doggy best friend, Gracie, and new parents that are absolutely devoted to him. He gets to go to the dog park just about every day! Congrats on your wonderful new life, Max Valentine!


Turk, a.k.a. Orange, was part of a TNR program along with his brother, but we failed when it came to the R-part, and decided to work with this scared little guy instead. And we’re glad we did! He was with us for 8 months as a foster boy, but with patience comes great things. Namely, a wonderful home that accepts Turk as he is. He has a new best friend, a chihuahua named Little Man, and his new people love him. Congratulations to Turk!


This sweet girl was rescued from a hoarding situation where she was living with 20 other cats in a one-bedroom apartment. She spent a month in her foster home, then her lovely new parents saw her picture and fell in love with her instantly. Congratulations to Abby & her new family!

This awesome boy came to us from a hoarding situation where he was living with 4 other dogs and 21 cats in a small apartment. He had been adopted from the shelter, and then abandoned and passed through a few sets of hands before he wound up at the hoarder’s home. Sometimes he didn’t get fed and sometimes he wouldn’t get to go outside for days on end. He stayed with us for a month and then found a wonderful, wonderful home with a couple named Billie & Larry, where he joins the family of two sweet little dogs and some kitties.
We are so happy for you, Sparky! Or Samson, I guess we should say! πŸ™‚


This beautiful 3-year-old Red Point Siamese baby found his forever home! Congratulations to Pookie and his new family!


This wonderful sweetie was given to us by a woman whose children were too rough with Matty. He was only with us a couple of weeks when a great couple came along who were looking to add a kitty to their household and fell in love with this gorgeous boy.
Congratulations to Matty & his new family. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
