From rescuers Rick and Kathy Mello:
A bystander witnessed two dogs (a lab mix male and a mixed breed female) get
dumped from a car. Unfortunately, with the economy being what it is, we are
seeing more of this than ever before. The dogs were frantic and the male dog
kept going up to every stopped car on Krome Avenue and 248th Street
trying to find their owner. The female dog was behind him every step of the
way. By the time Kathy got to them, they were very scared and running in the
street aimlessly looking for someone to take them….when she got them in our
truck, they ate a little bit and immediately fell asleep from exhaustion. The
reason I am passing this on is that we are trying to adopt these dogs together.
When they are separated from each other, they cry and become very upset….the two
are in love and inseparable. There is no question if someone had not gotten to
them they would have died together on highway; now, we are going to try to help
them live the rest of their lives together. As you know, it is very difficult
to adopt out two dogs together, but in all of our years of doing rescue, we are
certain that if there were ever two dogs that needed to stay together, it is
these two. We have received some assistance in the way of temporary boarding
since we are beyond full at our place have no room for them. Also, we are
working mightily through our network of friends and co-rescuers to find them a
home. Ellie, any help you can give us in getting the word out would be greatly
appreciated. We really appreciate you and what you do for the animals. If you
need more information, please call us at 786-243-3557 or 786-251-8050.
