In Florida, in the Everglades, a dog rescue foundation called 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida is doing whatever they can to help lost pups.
It's a sad fact that some people are heartless monsters and simply abandon their dogs when they no longer feel like caring for them.
Amy Roman is the founder of the rescue operation and her nonprofit group has rescued over 700 dogs and 40 cats since September 2011.
Even though it's a $5,000 fine or a year in prison for abandoning a pet in Florida, owners still do it, often.
"There's tons and tons of dogs on these nurseries. The mothers are found covered in snake bites. Puppies are orphaned. We may be driving around and then hit the mother lode where all the dogs are."
The great thing is, Amy has dozens of volunteers scouring the Everglades for dogs to rescue.
Then they always make sure to find the dogs a good home!
Thank goodness for people like Amy Roman and her rescue operation!
Keep on saving those pups!!
