A Way for a Stray, Inc. pledges to assist and aid in the care and placement of homeless, neglected and abandoned dogs in the city of Miami. Through various fundraising events and individual donations, we aim to facilitate services such as spay or neuter and basic vetting. We will also offer care and protection for these animals until proper fostering and placement in forever homes can be made. While providing these services we also wish to bring about community awareness and education through various efforts within the service area.
Through our charitable organization we wish to foster an environment of change for the betterment of the city of Miami and the relationship between humans and animals.
Dutchess is our newest memeber of the AWFAS family. Dutchess was rescued from Miami Dade Animal Servies and is suffering from severe Demodex so infected that she lost most of her fur and her skin was so raw that as she would walk her skin would crack and bleed. This poor girl also required a blood transfusion. She arrived at the shelter with a body score of 1.5 out of 9. Dutchess has been our most recent large project as the first week for her the veterinary team kept telling us not to be unrealistic that this angel may not survive. We are happy to announce that her last day of antibiotics will be 11/16. Dutchess is looking for her forever family.
Benji was rescued from MDAS on 7/15 after being hit by a car. Benji's last treatment for his leg was the first week of November. Benji is now cone free after 4 long months of 2-3 vet visits a week. He has found his forever family.
Chip, Champ, Chuck, Chester were rescued from a hoarder home in Miami. They were found living with over 60 chi's in the home, with feces everywhere. These poor souls had never seen the outside and never walked on grass. They were terrified, never socialized, sick, and hungry.
Dessie was a deaf senior we rescued from Miami Dade Animal Services after her family abandoned her at the kill shelter after 14 years of being a part of their family. Dessie, luckily received a lot of attention as no one could understand how someone abandons a family pet after 14 years. Her forever home was found rather quickly.
Grace was brought into MDAS with a severe laceration on her neck from an embedded collar. We immediately brought Grace to the hospital so her injuries could be attended to and her infection healed. Grace was in the hospital for several weeks as they could not do surgery to close her wound until the infection cleared. We had Grace for over 4 months, but thanks to an article on the DoDo.com, Grace found a lovely home in LA!
We are entirely foster based as we do not have a facility. All of our dogs are with fosters all over Dade, Broward and at times Palm Beach county. Without our fosters we wouldn't be able to continue rescuing dogs.
We encourage adoptions far and wide! We are only ever looking for the best homes for all of our rescues.
We often need volunteers to help with home visits, transport for the dogs, or volunteers for events.
