 UPDATE - Nikos lost his battle last week. The time spent without food was just too much for his body to take and help came too late. His brother Nigel is still fighting and although he has probable permanent kidney damage he is stronger than Nikos was and hopefully will have a few quailty years to enjoy life.
RIP sweet Nikos - you were loved by so many even if only for a few days!

Nikos and his companion were dumped in Homestead like trash. Clearly starving they were rescued by Chain of Love in Homestead. It was immediately obvious something was terribly wrong with Nikos. He could not open his mouth! We have no idea how long he went without food. Abandoned Pet Rescue agreed to help Nikos while his companion went to a foster home. Nikos arrived last night and although he still cannot open his mouth he knows he is safe and being helped. He is getting food through a syringe and fluids on a regular basis.

Chain of Love and APR need your help with his medical expenses. Please click here if you can donate to help this sweet boy.
Our friends at Ch. 7 were out last night to meet Nikos. You can see their story here.

Taylor was brought into Broward County Animal Care as a stray. She had a large growth on her ear/head that was thought to be a tumor. On Firday, July 25, 2014 she was operated on to remove it. We will update on her status as soon as we have more information. We need donations towards her medical care. Please click here if you can help. Any amount is greatly appreciated.

I was dumped out of a truck by a man and woman (were they my owners?) and a nice young lady found us and got us a safe place at APR to stay. All my kids have been in forever homes for quite awhile now but I am still a...read more about Danni
Guiness was surrendered to us by his owners when they ran into financial issues. He is about 5 years old, but Guiness needs to go to a home with an experienced dog owner. He loves children, probably because he was in a home with one. Guiness is food motivated but whoever adopts him needs to go slow ...read more about Guiness
