Our goal is to secure the safe haven of shelter animals from the South Florida/Miami area. We aim to help save as many lives as possible by transporting them out of South Florida/Miami and into other areas of the country where they will be placed in loving homes.
The focus is to raise the funds needed to achieve this goal to rescue and re-home as many animals as possible each and every month.
As of October 2018 we have now saved over 4600 dogs from South Florida shelters.

In April 2015, DOGS ON THE MOVE founder Bonnie Plafke was honored by the NHL Florida Panthers as a "Hero Among Us."
Courage is a dwarf Pittie, with MANY physical and psychological medical issues. When he was in the streets of Miami, the other dogs picked on him incessantly and so did the people. He was tormented everyday and when he got to the shelter, Jessica Garcell, who worked at MDAS at the time, made it her mission to make sure he was saved. And who better than DOGS ON THE MOVE to step up to rescue him? He has been through so much including more medical tests than you can ever possibly imagine. Many did not think he would make it but we knew that where there is LIFE, there is HOPE.
We were truly honored and grateful to have the chance to help this amazing boy, who has shown more courage than most people, if put in the situations that he was in.
Here is our sweet girl Summer with her new momma. It was obvious to us that Summer recently had babies but Summer came into the shelter alone. She was extremely sad, shy and submissive but we knew she was not aggressive at all.
Her new family is perfect for her and you can tell she feels right at home with her new mom and dad.
Mia was surrendered to MDAS by her owners. At 10 years old she had never been spayed and was in heat. She also had missing teeth as well as a few loose teeth and yet she still kept smiling. She literally always had the biggest smile on her face. Whomever met her fell in love with her. She was medically treated and as you can see here she has found a wonderful mom and fur siblings
Sora was unfortunately no stranger to the shelter. She was a small puppy in May of 2014 the first time around when she was adopted at MDAS. She thought they were going to be the family that would love her forever. Sadly, Sora found herself back at the same shelter as a stray exactly 3 years later. For weeks she waited patiently for her previous "owner" to come find her and take her to safety. They did not come. She became urgent and so we came! Her family loves her and is showing her what a real family is like.
Titan (L) (fka as Triton) was adopted in 2014 & Cooper (R) (fka Big Shot) was adopted in 2016. Titan was rescued in the final hours and Cooper had Cherry Eye which needed surgery. They have a wonderful family and live in the Midwest on over 2 acres of land. They have plenty of room to run & play and often get to see their doggy best friend Max (fka Mark also a DOTM doggy!)
