SPECIAL NEEDS DOGNEEDS A SPECIAL FOREVER HOMEPLEASE HELP!!!!!Rudy came from the Miami Dade Animal Shelter three years ago when they had a distemper outbreak and all rescues were trying to save dogs. He has a condition that ate away part of his back feet so now they have to be dressed and bandaged daily. Otherwise he is a happy go lucky 'Marmaduke' kind of guy! This eight year old 60 pound Shepherd/Dane mix has been around other dogs and is ok, but he cannot be around cats. Rudy lost his wonderful foster home when they moved and is now at the adoption center. He is very confused and would love another home as soon as possible. Come in the meet Rudy this weekend from 12-5pm!

This is the second highest award a Girl Scout can receive. The girls built two cat towers, made hundreds of toys, collected donations and donated funds to help rescue animals. The girls enjoyed working with Abandon Pet Rescue.

IMAGINE A FUTURE... HELP BUILD IT NOW
Abandoned Pet Rescue is your community no-kill animal shelter and you can be proud of it.
APR needs the support of all who care about its future. Donors like you play an essential role in keeping Abandoned Pet Rescue’s doors open and the animals in perfect health. With your gift, you are helping to ensure a future for this unique community resource for many generations to come.
Now Abandoned Pet Rescue is taking on the task to build a new concrete wall to expand its outdoor exercise area for the animals. The wall, with your help, will be used to offer tribute to the people and animals who support APR.
Help us complete the wall by purchasing an engraved Metropolitan Quarry Tile in honor of your dog, your cat, your family, in memory of a loved one or your pet, a community volunteer, birthdays, weddings, graduations, anniversaries, your company or organization. Each sponsored tile will be a visible part of the APR Wall of Memories. All proceeds raised from the commemorative tile program will be used to help build the wall and support the daily operations of the shelter.

Thanks to the Camden Multi-Family Communities family for their hands-on support of APR during their Pet Palooza month.
Camden Las Olas residents volunteered their time and skills painting, cleaning, and fixing a number of items needing extra man power at APR. They spent five hours, helping with the laundry and deep cleaning each of the outside pens and inside rooms at the helter. They were also able to help address a major concern for the facility by properly cleaning dryer vents and a/c coils to ensure the equipment was efficiently working and helping keep cost down.
Camden communities are pet friendly and do not have any weight restrictions. Thanks to the folks at Camden who are making the shelter a cheerier home for the animals.Thanks Sopranos for a great APR FUNdraiser!
