February 10, 2017























Check out this adorable sweetheart! Lex could be the perfect dog for you! Labs are voted America’s #1 dog, year after year, because they are simply the best!!!

Meet Lex! He had a rough start in life. Lex was rescued, along with his brothers and sister from a pet store, where they had been sitting in cages that were way too small for months. But now, at 8 months old, Lex is in a Lab Rescue foster home, where he’s finally getting to be a puppy– Playing for hours with his foster brothers and sisters! And he loves other dogs!

Lex is an adorable, chocolate boy with huge amber eyes. He is not going to be as big as most Labs and will probably max out at about 60 pounds. Lex is looking for his forever home through Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida. He’s an amazing pup who is just eager to learn and please!

The adoption process includes a written online application and a home visit of the potential adopter. All medical procedures (spay/neuter, shots, bloodwork, microchip) are included in the $375 puppy and $300 adult labrador adoption fees. Click here to adopt Lex today!

Harmony (ID A578443) is an amazing 2 year old, 50 pound, mixed bully breed who is absolutely fabulous! This beautiful gal LOVES people, is very sweet and gives hugs and kisses. She loves plush toys, but she loves chewing them apart even more. She enjoys treats and likes people of all ages and is looking for the perfect home.

When you adopt from the Humane Society of Broward County the dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, receive preliminary vaccinations, cats are feline leukemia tested, and dogs over 7 months are tested for heartworm.  They also receive a flea/tick preventative, a 10-day limited health care plan from VCA Animal Hospitals, 30 days of Trupanion Pet Insurance and a bag of Purina ONE pet food.

Zeus is a young Dalmatian rescued from Puerto Rico. Zeus is almost 2 years old now and still looking for his forever home. He is very playful with other canines, loves kids and adores human attention. Zeus is small for his age due to a couple health challenges. His condition, however, should not exclude him from consideration as a forever companion since his medical concern is very manageable.

While Zeus has been searching for his happily ever after he spends his days napping, playing, napping and playing some more. He has endless amounts of energy and certainly understands his limitations and boundaries.  Dalmatian Rescue is very hopeful and encouraged that Zeus will one day unite with a wonderful family or individual that will give him the life he most certainly deserves! And by the way… Zeus is bilingual!!!

“Ziggy is an 8-month old Chiweenie, Chihuahua Dachshund mix.  He is what we call an owner-surrender. The owner’s circumstances changed and she felt she could no longer care for Ziggy. She wanted to do what was in his best interest. She posted him on Craigslist (which could be a dangerous thing to do) but someone from Abandoned Pet Rescue saw the post and contacted the owner.  She was happy to surrender him to a reputable rescue to ensure he will get a wonderful home.

He is with one of our foster’s now receiving lots of love.

Ziggy will need basic training so he does not develop any issues when he is left alone. He is working on his housebreaking skills. Ziggy is loveable and energetic.

If you are interested in meeting Ziggy you can visit Abandoned Pet Rescue at 1137 NE 9th Avenue in Ft. Lauderdale. We are open six days a week: Wednesday – Sunday from 12 noon to 5pm. (Closed Tuesdays). Or fill out an adoption application on our website:  Please note that in the best interest of all animals our adoption process is more rigorous than that of most other organizations. So be patient and know that we want to help all our 300 animals find forever homes.”












Adam, a 1 year old, 6 pound chihuahua is our Beach Buddy this morning! Adam was rescued on his “last day” from a rural shelter in Polk County. He came to Animal Aid with the bottom half of his leg severed. Since the top portion is in perfect condition, they didn’t see the need to amputate. So, they are raising money now to buy him a prosthetic foot. This will give Adam full use of his leg, so he can live a normal life. They found a company that makes them in Canada, but they are $1,000. We are raising money for his new foot. So far we have $100.

His crowd funding link is:

Adam is one of 45 dogs available at the Animal Aid adoption center. Their site features photos of the dogs and cats waiting for adoption at













Rosie is a 5 year old American Bulldog mix who was abandoned at the Miami-Dade County Community Spay Neuter Clinic in Cutler Bay. Rosie is an amazing pooch who suffered an unfortunate injury that left her jaw fractured and several of her front teeth to get pushed out of place. Thanks to the donations made to the Second Chance Fund, the Miami Humane Society was able to take Rosie in for surgery to correct her jaw and remove her damaged teeth. She is now pain-free and ready to rock the world of her forever family! If you are looking for a sweet and affectionate doggie to have by your side, Rosie is your girl! Her hobbies include: Giving her human endless hugs and kisses and taking naps by the side of someone loving and warm. She is totally adorable and will squirm on the floor in hopes that you will crouch down to give her a big ol’ belly rub. She is just a simple girl with few needs and so much love to give. Rosie gets along with people and dogs of all ages, too, which makes her the perfect fit for any family! To adopt Rosie, visit the Soffer and Fine Adoption Center, located at 16101 West Dixie Highway in North Miami Beach. You will need to fill out an application and pass a property verification, so that we may ensure pets are allowed in the new home. Rosie’s adoption fee would be $100, plus the purchase of a collar and leash. You may bring your own collar and leash if you do not wish to purchase one from the shelter’s boutique. You can learn about Rosie and her other canine and feline friends at the Humane Society of Greater Miami, at













Finnick and Rue, two adorable kittens, visited the Beach Studio with volunteers Dorian and Kathryn.

5 week old Finnick, Rue and their 2 siblings were found in a box on a lawn in east Miramar. A Good Samaritan heard their cries and called a volunteer at Good Karma. They were quickly picked up and taken to foster homes, where they will be loved and cared for until they are old enough to be adopted (8 weeks old). Even at this early age, their personalities are starting to shine through.

Finnick, is a loving vocal little kitten who likes nothing more than to be snuggled tightly and sleep.

Rue, loves to play with her brother and her foster mom. She constantly purrs when she is petted.

Both kittens vie for attention and are simply little bundles of joy. To adopt these kittens, visit Like them on Facebook here!

Ace is an adorable basset terrier blend. He was found tied to a bench at the Paws 4 You boarding retreat. “As we looked back into our cameras, we saw that the person tied him up at 8:58pm a couple of weeks ago and was kind enough to give him a kiss on the head as the dumper got back into his black BMW and sped off. No matter what the circumstances were, the poor pup spent the night tied to a bench where he wrapped himself so tight around the leg, that we were lucky he had not choked himself over night. He was left with no food, no water and no protection from other animals, weather or people. Ace has grown to trust humans again.”

Ace is a bundle of joy and hopes to find his forever family to share his life with. He promises…You won’t be disappointed!

Paws 4 You Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit, volunteer, donor-subsidized organization based in the Pinecrest/Palmetto Bay area of Miami, Florida. Their mission is to provide a safe shelter to homeless dogs with the end goal of adoption into loving families, while growing community awareness. They save many dogs from euthanasia at Miami-Dade Animal Services, where more than 27,000 unwanted pets end up each year. They give these animals professional medical care, hope, and lots of love. All of their dogs are sterilized, vaccinated, and ID micro-chipped to prevent future loss. Additionally, they believe in the value of education pertaining to the importance of spaying and neutering. Pet overpopulation is a serious problem in our county and by sterilizing your pets, you help relieve the strain on our community. They also offer pet boarding to the community with proceeds going back to caring for dogs that aren’t lucky enough to have homes yet.
