One of South Florida's most beloved rescuers died recently: Allen Babcock, who succumbed to cancer.
"Allen is responsible for saving the lives of several hundred dogs and cats and this is a great loss to the rescue community. We will continue to maintain the rescue group and carry on Al's legacy,'' says the group's website.
Donations in his memory should be sent to Allen Babcock Dog & Cat Rescue, 9715 W. Broward Blvd., #173, Plantation, FL 33324.
Allen always took the hardest of the hard cases: sick and injured animals that otherwise would have died. One look at the week's featured pet on the website and you'll know exactly what I mean.
