Florida City, Florida – Recently, information about a disturbing activity which is happening in the South of Florida was shared.
The story highlighted an ongoing problem – dogs who are being abandoned in the Everglades.
It is a horrible situation for these dogs – being left to fend for themselves in an unwelcoming, dangerous environment.
Domesticated dogs, previously companions have found themselves in a harsh setting…an environment that is home to deadly snakes and alligators.
A place where there is no refuge from the danger.
If a predator doesn’t steal their life – starvation will.
But something is being done about this horrible problem.
A community effort has been put together to help end the suffering of these abandoned souls.
On Facebook, the 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida page has been created.
Members who live near the area of this dog dumping ground are coming together this weekend to make a direct impact on those who have been abandoned.
From the page,
