OMG you people commenting on the Everglades dogs have NO CLUE about rescue in Miami Dade county NOR the horrendous situation with our high kill alleged animal 'shelter.' The shelter takes in 120+ pets DAILY and an EQUAL AMOUNT ARE KILLED DAILY TO MAKE ROOM for the incoming. YES the Everglades dogs are a 501c3 non-profit and YES the majority of dogs are in boarding kennels or/vets offices at discounted rates BECAUSE OUR LOUSY CITIZENSHIP DOESN'T STEP UP TO THE PLATE TO FOSTER OR ADOPT. This occurs in the southern end of the county moreso than elsewhere (altho it occurs countywide) because of lower income and IMMIGRANTS who do not have the same value system as Americans regarding pets. Commissioners and county gov't, have TURNED THEIR BACKS on the south end of the county for decades. Animal Control doesn't even operate in Homestead instead they have an 'agreement' with Homestead police. When Miami Dade Police ran the public shelter under the leadership of former Mayor Alvarez THEY RAN THE SHELTER INTO THE GROUND, STOLE OVER A MILLION DOLLARL TRUST FUND FOR THEMSELVES, DROVE OFF ALL VOLUNTEERS AND RESCUE GROUPS, AND KILLED EVEN MORE PETS THAN WE DO TODAY. Get educated and quit complaining/gripiing and DO something to HELP. Foster, adopt, donate - something. Campaign for a dedicated tax to go towards animal welfare - more residents have pets than children today. Sending these dogs to MDAS is a certain DEATH SENTENCE. What this group is doing is trying to save lives.What have ANY of you done to help besides spout off your uneducated opinions? GET INVOLVED. LOBBY COMMISSIONERS FOR A FREE DEDICATED SPAY/NEUTER CLINIC IN HOMESTEAD. Go down and help catch/trap/vet/foster/adopt these animals. We killed nearly 30,000 animals in our 'shelter' last year. Some 'shelter.' I don't blame the shelter staff I BLAME OUR RESIDENTS AND COUNTY GOVERNMENT ESPECIALLY COMMISSIONERS WHO DOLE OUT THOUSANDS TO SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS TO SECURE THEIR VOTE AND LET ANIMALS DIE.
