My Animals Rock, Inc. and Chain of Love Abandoned Dogs of  Everglades/Homestead are desperate for help.

The holidays are coming soon and we are desperately trying to make this a great season for the homeless animals of Homestead and the Everglades. We are at the lowest point that we have been in terms of animals that we have rescued which need adopted and donations to take care of them. As everyone knows Mirta , the director of Chain of Love ,is the soldier that never sleeps down there.  In addition, to taking care of her family and a full time job as an Everglades Park Ranger, she is the Pied Piper of Homestead/Everglades abandoned animals.
The dogs that we rescue from Everglades/Homestead area have serious medical and surgical issues. Most of them have been hit by  cars or shot with a gun or become victims of dog fighting and other human abuse.  They  have heartworms and other tick born illnesses which require expensive medical treatment. This is in addition to the standard vetting required :spay/neuter, vaccines, bloodwork, microchip, and worming meds. Our rescues work together to combat these abuses and to rescue these innocent animals, but our rescues are stretched to the point of collapse and we can't afford to take care of one more dog. We have outstanding medicals of nearly $5,000, including $2,600 in surgery bills. We  have 10 dogs that have not been able to be vetted yet because there is no money.
Many, many of you have contributed to our rescue efforts in so many ways and we are so appreciative. We hate to ask for more help, but we need it desperately. 
The pix below is  just a snapshot of the tragedy that defines this area and of the work that we face everyday.
Please accept our appreciation for all that many of you have done to help already and continuously. If we can ask for just a little more, we can do a little more too!

Thank you for caring.
