Main storySouth Florida is in the midst of what SFBR is calling a Beagle March Madness - but it’s not what you think. Within the span of two weeks, six beagles have been found roaming the streets of Miami-Dade and Broward counties, alone and without any tags identifying their names or owners. Days have passed, and four of these dogs are still unclaimed. Despite being closed for intakes, SFBR has stepped up to help these dogs, whose finders have kindly agreed to foster them until owners are located. Right now, the rescue is providing care for Gabe, Bo, Roger, and Reba, as we work tirelessly to identify where they came from. There is a crisis of dogs being abandoned in our community, and it’s simply heartbreaking. Our local shelters are at capacity, and rescues cannot keep up with the demand. Only through the generosity of our fosters, volunteers and adopters is SFBR able to make a dent. We are grateful for all those who give of their time, money and heart to help these dogs in need. But, there’s much work to be done.If you want to help, please apply to volunteer, foster, or adopt. Together, we can save so many lives! Please help us continue our mission! Howlin’ Good TimesIt’s our 1st anniversary, and we want to celebrate with YOU! Join us on Sunday, March 26th as SFBR celebrates its very successful first year as an official rescue. We’ll gather for some fun in the sun at our Beagle Beach Bash from 9 -11 a.m. at Haulover Park, 10800 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach. Some of our adoptable dogs will be on site. Please register today! Hope to see you there! Great learning day for our SFBR friends Group Training eventWe are very grateful to all those who joined uslast month for our group training with Happy With Dogs. What a great reunion of old friends, SFBR alumni and a few of our adoptable dogs looking for their furever families. At SFBR, we believe training is a key component of a happy and healthy relationship between dogs and their humans. We appreciate Happy With Dogs for their cooperation. Pawfect PartnersSFBR’s success in helping dogs in need is possible in part to the relationships we foster with local partners. This month, we’d like to highlight Happy With Dogs, a woman-owned local business with years of experience helping dogs and their families enjoy life together. Happy With Dogs has helped several SFBR dogs become their best selves before being adopted. Most recently, they took in Buddy the bagle, who was ffering from fear of humans, specifically males. Buddy is now a loving, playful pup living a wonderful life with his new family in northern Florida. Thank you, Happy With Dogs, for making our dogs oh so happy! Happy TailsSFBR is proud to announce the adoption of several rescued pups (and a kitty), who are all now loved and cared for by wonderful families. Puppies Bella and Jake, Buddy, Iris, Felipe, Ronnie II, Zola, Mick and Nicholas the cat are now in their furever homes, and we could not be happier for them. Fab FostersWhen SFBR rescued senior puggle Niko from death row at Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control in early February, we knew he needed a special place to decompress and feel the comforts of home. Thankfully, two of our amazing fosters provided him the love and safety he desperately needed. At Camille and Doug’s home in Palm Beach County, Niko enjoyed multiple daily walks and lakefront views from the family room. And with Roxanne in Broward County, he played so well with his foster siblings and learned how to share his toys and space with other dogs. Thanks to the love and care of his fosters, Niko is now thriving in his foster-to-adopt home, where he sunbathes pool side and snuggles on the couch. Fosters are instrumental in dog rescuing.
