Florida veterinary practices are contributing examinations, medication, food, water and shelter for some of the hundreds of abandoned dogs left in rural areas of the state. 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida, founded by Amy Roman, has rescued at least 700 dogs and 40 cats since its inception in 2011. Veterinarian Summer Heyerly, who examined a recent group of rescue dogs, says that although the animals were born in nature, they are domesticated and can make good pets.
