Happy Stories!!!

Angel

Angel was rescued on October 3rd, 2015 by Tatiana and her daughter from Miami Dade Animal Services. She was found as a stray and by the shape of her body we guessed she was used for breeding and was kicked out onto the streets when she was old. Her eyes where coved by a horrendous film and we thought that she was blind. Laying on the shelter floor with a huge open wound on her ear, she seemed to give up. There was clearly no way she had a chance to be adopted. So Tatiana and her daughter took her home. Given alot of love, she became the happiest dog on the earth and our inspiration to help more dogs like her.

Crystal

We saw  Crystal on Petharbor website; she was surrended by her owner. She was so scared that she wouldnt allow MDAS employeers to examin her. She showed her teeth to anyone who tried to approach her so she was labeled "aggressive" and given 24 hours to live. Tatiana and her friends went to see Crystal at MDAS and concluded that she is just one very scared dog who despite barking aggressivly was very sweet. The only chance for Crystal to survive would be to pull her out right away. Crystal spent two weeks in a foster house being an enjoyment of her foster mom and promptly found a new home after her beautiful pictures where posted on Facebook. 

Summer was a cruelty confiscated case. She was recued from Miami Dade Animal Services after being abused by her owner. We found a great family for her. She swims in the pool and garden in the company of her little sister who is a boxer. 

Summer

Mila was adopted from Miami Dade Animal Services by Frrego Tosca, Tatiana's personal friend after Tatiana sent a video of Mila  passing out due to the heat at MDAS. Freego immiedtly adopted her and now she enoys life with her owner and 2 other furry friends Sierra and Doobie.

Phoenix

Tatiana received a call of distress: somebody found a dog who was badly burnt and needed help. A rescue from up North was willing to take care of her but the transportation should be immidiate. Tatiana and Julia immiedtly stepped in to be the transporters. They drove her from Miami to Port St. Lucie where she went to the emergency room and was treated. The dog was named Phoenix. She had several succseful operations and is happily recovering in a foster house. We are happy and proud to be a part of this story. We love you, Phoenix!

Kaleia

Kaleia was admitted into Miami Dade Animal Services in such a poor state she was given 24 hours to be rescued or euthanized. Tatiana coordinated with a rescue up from up North who had interest with Kaleia. Tatiana drove straight to the shelter to take Kaleia to the rescue. We are happy we could save Kaleia and she felt and looked much better after one month of proper treatment.

Saved from hoarding situation together with her two sisters. In great hands of family friends.

Miracle

We saw Miracle at MDAS. She looked so miserable and neglected that we urgently decided to change her life for the better. Apparently she had spent all her life chained outdoors. Her fur and skin deteriorated from the rain and general lack of care. She suffered tick related denies. Despite it all she remained trustful and friendly. Miracle was cured and found a happy home in Sebring, Fl. She lives on a farm with two more dogs and three cats. She loves her new life.

Tesla

During her volenteering at MDAS Yulia noticed one very scared dog sitting at the corner of the kennel. she walked her and gave her a treat the day after she saw her again sitting in the same corner of the kennel with a treat untouched. The dog was very deppressed and skitish. Dogs like that are labeled "shy", considered unadoptable and are sent to be euthanized. Yulia didnt want this nice and sweet dog to end up dead. She adopted her and gave her the name Tesla. Now Tesla enjoys living in a beautiful apartment and enjoys to watch tv from her favorite chair. She also enjoys going to the bay, the park, and playing with Yulia's grandchildren.

Jet was called the "saddest" dog of MDAS. A video of him sitting in the cagehad 26,509 views but yet nobody wanted him. Thats when Tatiana stepped in to network and find him an adopter. YES! It happened! Just look at his face on his "freedom ride" from MDAS picture.

She was found as a stray, and brought to Miami Dade Animal Services where she was labeled "shy" (unadoptable and high risk of euthanasi) and was so scared she was hiding under the her bed most of the time. She was adopted by a loving home and a big backyard!
