Melanie has been working with a dog rescue operating in Florida, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island that is dedicated to saving the lives of abandoned dogs and redirecting them to stable, loving environments that serve as their forever home or the bridge to their forever home.
The Rescue a (501c3) is a no-kill dog rescue based in New England. We rescue abandoned, abused and often neglected dogs from states with significant overpopulation issues and work tirelessly to place them in loving, responsible homes. They have been committed to dogs of all ages, breeds and those who may have pre-existing medical conditions.
The state of Florida has a staggering 200,000+ dogs that run through statewide shelter systems every year. In Miami alone, intake averages between 70-100 dogs per day. For a shelter that can only officially house 400 dogs, euthanasia is a sad reality for most. Each day healthy, adoptable dogs lose their lives. But we can do better!!
