Ready for some happy feelz?!

Earlier this year, Powder was found ABANDONED in the middle of the Florida Everglades, a place where dogs like him are often dumped and left to fend for themselves. The environment here may be wonderful for gators and wading birds, but dogs can not survive very long in these harsh conditions.

A couple was out at some nearby the boat ramps when they saw poor Powder, barely able to move, trying to find a comfortable place to rest. The couple tried for hours to get help and the Broward County Sheriff’s Office responded. The deputies on scene were determined to help.

Dezzy’s Second Chance Animal Rescue responded to the deputies’ call and agreed to take Powder into their care. After thousands of dollars in treatment, including surgery on both his eyes, Powder is fully recovered!
