Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: We have rescued thousands of abandoned dogs from the Everglades National Park area and all surrounding areas, such as Homestead, Redland, & Cutler Bay. These animals need food, water, medical attention and a safe place to call home. The mission is to send teams of volunteers into the everglades to pick up dogs, take them to veterinarians for much needed medical attention, for heartworm, tick diseases, broken bones, malnutrition, abuse, among other things. Then we work tirelessly to help to find loving homes for all the animals, including background checks, home checks and meet and greets. We stop at nothing to make sure these animals end up in loving, caring FOREVER homes. We also work to educate the public and children in the importance of animal care, spay,neuter, & heartworm prevention. And to just get the word out that there is a massive dumping problem down here. We have school programs where we go in and speak with children to get them involved with what is going on, and we even have a youth 100+ page to get them involved with volunteering to help in anyway they can to help support our Rescue mission.

Results: Over 3,700 animals saved to date!!

Direct beneficiaries per year: Hundreds of abandoned, neglected, abused animals.

Geographic areas served: Rural Miami Dade County and the inner cities, also in Broward County we take in strays, owner surrenders, we work closely with police and animal control on animal cruelty cases. We also are partnered with all the local animal shelters to pull dogs off death row.

This so called rescue was fined by the State of Florida $5000.00 for misappropriation of funds earlier this year. Call the Dept. of Agriculture, Director Amy Topol @ 850-410-3662. If you wish to donate your hard earned money to this operation, be my guest. Then this is the rescue for you. All the documents are public information. Investigation uncovered & revealed, manicures, pedicures, dining out on the dogs donations, plus a vacation to the Keys, just to name a few. Don't believe me, do your own homework. Call Ms. Topol. Number above.

We were introduced to 100+ Animal Rescue almost 4 years ago. We had just spent 3 years in several hospitals with both our children with life threatening illnesses. A friend of the family sent us pictures of dogs waiting to be adopted we fell in love with a little brown 4 month old puppy who had been rescued by 100+ animal rescue in the rural area known as The Redlands along with his mom and sister. We immediately fell in love with this little guy and he immediately began to heal our family. He became a service dog for our son who is much better but still disabled.

The crew and volunteers of 100+ are amazing. They go any where at any time day or night to respond to pleas for help for animals in need of rescue. They spend their free time at fund razing events to have funds to care for the animals in their care. We joined them as a volunteer shortly after adopting Figment and find great fulfillment in helping with the rescue in any way we can. We have seen so much sadness when these poor animals are rescued, scared, hungry, sometimes near death and such joy when they are healed happy and loved in their new home. These ladies do whatever it takes to heal these babies, care for them until they are ready to by adopted and then take great care in putting these babies into new loving homes. Though my family's contribution is small compared to the sweat and tears these women do we are so proud to be a part of this wonderful organization. 100+ has saved thousands of animals and when they are placed into loving forever homes they sometimes save the families adopting them in the process. Thank you for Figment our rescue who we would not have if not for their dedication to save these lost babies. we are so blessed that Amy Carol and their amazing crew responded to their cry for hep.

100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida is absolutely amazing! The collective force of this rescue will exceed your expectations if you are unfamiliar!
After I attended one fundraiser event, I began following this organization more closely and started volunteering as soon as I could. It has almost been a year since I started volunteering. Amy’s leadership is motivational and compelling! She goes beyond the desk and will be the first one out to a rescue. This rescue organization is more like a rescue family! All the volunteers and fosters play vital roles to the ongoing success by showing love and socializing these rescue dogs that have been abandoned, neglected, and in some cases seriously injured. This rescue family has some amazing volunteers that will also bake dog cookies, make art, and even mow lawns to raise necessary funds for our rescue dogs. The adoption and fundraiser events are made possible with support of local businesses in the community that help raise funding and bring awareness to the mission of 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida.
As a volunteer, I spend a good amount of time with our rescue dogs, whether it is going out for walks or jogs, playing with them, going out for the day to a park, or just sitting with them and petting them. I am also fortunate enough that I am able to bring a rescue dog with me to work once a week to get out the kennel for a day and to socialize with co-workers. Volunteering in an animal rescue can have its ups and downs but at the end of the day, 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida will never give up on our rescue dogs! Knowing what these rescue dogs have endured and watching them get adopted is what keeps me coming back to volunteer!
100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida does not discriminate against any breed, age, or condition of a dog. Truly displaying unconditional love to abandoned dogs in need. With the help and support of the local community and even some nationwide donators this rescue does the most it can with the current funding at hand. I could only imagine what 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida could accomplish if it gets the funding it deserves!

I began watching 100+ via Facebook back in 2012 from Daytona Beach, where I was living at the time. Over the years I have watched their stories of rescue for all of their pups as well as all of the follow up once their dogs get adopted. I always wished more than anything that I could be a part of their organization but I lived too far away to join in.

Early this year I took a relocation to Hollywood with my job. The first thing I did was attend an orientation class to start volunteering with the rescue. I was so overjoyed to finally live out a dream of being part of this group I had watched for so long from afar.

And they did NOT disappoint! Never had I met so many other people so dedicated, so involved and so diligent in the care of animals and their plight than 100 Plus is!!

Every single aspect of these dogs lives are addressed from the moment they are rescued to the moment they step into their new forever families and beyond! I am beyond proud to say I am part of such a wonderful organization! These people give up their time, love, money, homes and personal time to make sure every animal here has a chance at not just a life, but one full filled with love and care forever. Anyone who donates, fosters and adopts with 100 Plus can be assured to be a part of something bigger than just a rescue. They are forever a part of a family.

Animals are the only beings on the earth who are pure and innocent of any sin. I am so grateful to be able to be touched by so many angels in this world and get the chance to see them spread their wings through this rescue group.

My husband and I fell in love with this rescue after adopting our sweet girl Shiela. Shiela was found living on the streets of little Haiti when they took her in. She waited over a year and a half to get adopted and they never gave up on her. After seeing how amazing this rescue is my husband and I became volunteers to do our part to help this incredible organization. They go above and beyond to help these precious animals and we are so honored to be part of it ❤

No matter the time of day the phone is always ringing and they do their part! This amazing rescues puts the animals first, which is the way it should be regardless! I have seen the good in people through this rescue and also the bad; but they always help and show the true love to all the animals they save! Amazing group of people working hard to make a difference for those who need it most!

I am not even sure where to begin. I have been in rescue for about 11 years now. My husband and I had recently moved from Pensacola Florid to Ft. Lauderdale/Parkland. I was going stir crazy and was trying to find me another rescue to volunteer for. Well I found 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida :-) I was drawn to their video's showing step by step and the progress of each and everyone of their rescues.

They go above and beyond no matter what the cost is. They just take or should I say we just take a deep breath and breathe in hope the funds will come in to take care of all these animals. We are not to proud to beg. I know I am not.

I know I have adopted 5 from them and My husband and I have fostered 239 animals/kids for them so far in the past 3 years and we are not stopping :-)

They are 24/7 non stop

I am a volunteer as well as a foster failure to my cat Smoke. She was living in a chicken coupe with 27 other cats. 100+ isn't just for dogs. They are there to help those who do not have a voice. My husband also volunteers for them. Without a doubt, the best rescue there is.

I have attached a picture of my cat Smoke.

I've foster-failed twice with this organization. The first dog I took home was an amazing American Bulldog named Hercules, aka Mushy. He was rescued along with 9 other dogs from a farm in very rural Miami. He had been shot in his front leg and had a long list of health issues, the biggest one being stage 2 kidney disease. Thanks to 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida not giving up on him, he saw the best doctors and received everything he needed, when he needed it. Sadly, he lost his battle with kidney disease April 2, 2016 and the team was there with him to say goodbye. He was loved by so many and is missed every day.
Now I have sweet Buttercup who was rescued from a horrible area in Hollywood, Florida. She had a HUGE tumor removed from her ovary which was removed immediately as she was in destress. She is 12-14 years old, spaniel/golden mix, completely deaf with a severe heart murmur. She’s had litter after litter and I honestly believe she’s never received love until now. She is learning how to be a dog, to be part of a family and is doing great. Love this little dog to pieces.
These are just 2 of the over 3700 dogs who have found the loving homes they have always deserved thanks to this amazing rescue 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida. Can’t wait to be part of the next 3700.

My husband and I adopted one of six puppies that were rescued along with the mother (second pic). Within a few months I signed up to volunteer for this amazing organization and I help as much as I can. This group works tirelessly to save animals in need, provide them with the medical care many of them desperately need, and place them in the best home for their individual needs. We love our Ripley so much and are thankful to 100+ for rescuing her and the thousands of other dogs and cats they have helped.

My mom and I have fostered many dogs for this great organization. Amy and the crew are up all hours of the day and night checking in with all of the dogs and the fosters, making sure that everything is running smoothly. Some of the dogs we have fostered have had emergencies, Amy and the rescue take on the full brunt of the bills all the time. When a dog is adopted and needs a procedure, but the family can't comfortably afford it, 100+ steps in and helps out. Unlike many rescues, 100+ stays in contact with hundreds of people who have adopted our dogs, checking in, making sure everything is still running smoothly, and getting updates. 100+ is an organization that will stay with a dog for life. We love these dogs and want to see them have a better life than they did before. I can say with great certainty that all of the dogs we have fostered are in great homes, and it's all thanks to the 100+ crew, fosters (such as me and my mom), and volunteers.

Callie (fka Blondie) would never have made it from her "before" picture to her "after" picture without the love and dedication from the 100+ rescue . I feel privileged to be an adopter, supporter and volunteer with such an amazing group. They never , ever give up on their mission to Rescue,Revive and Re-home any animal who comes into their care no matter how dire the situation. I and my family will be forever thankful that they brought Callie into our lives.

From the moment I saw the complete undeniable 100% dedication this rescue has I have never looked back. Seeing first hand what this AMAZING organization will do and does to save a life. Many times it’s from conditions beyond anyone’s comprehension. Dogs abandoned , thrown away like trash, suffering from the result of human monsters, this rescue will be their voice and stop at nothing to get these animals well, whatever it may take, and into the best loving homes. It is endless and this rescue never sleeps. There is no down time because the heartache and suffering for so many dogs never stops. I have adopted a house full of love from 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida and I am eternally grateful. I will AWAYS be one of their biggest cheerleaders & supporters because I honestly cannot say enough about this outstanding compassionate organization. Below are pictures of my baby Phoebe/Riley who was rescued full term pregnant and horribly neglected and thanks to 100+ gave birth to her babies and blossomed into a beautiful flower. She is one of thousands and thousands that have their horrific stories to tell but did get to know love in the end whether for days, weeks, months or years. Because of 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida their life mattered.

100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades FL stops at nothing to save the life of dog! They have taken in the toughest case, dogs with gunshot wounds and dogs hit by cars, dogs used for breeding and dogs neglected on the streets. I adopted my girl, Emory, from 100+ in Sept 2015. Emory was used for breeding and spent her whole life in a crate. Emory was skin and bones when she was rescued. Emory learned what love truly is! Emory learned what toys are! She learned what a bed was! 100+ consists of dedicated and passionate people!!

We were fortunate enough to have adapted Murphy a special needs dog that this incredible group of woman rescued. His story is beyond heart breaking. He has been the highlight of our lives since his arrival. I greatly admire Tiffany and Carol for their selfless work. They bring joy to so many people and pour their hearts and souls into saving lives. I will always look to them for my next fur family member. I am eternally grateful fot 100plus who brought me my little boy Murphy.
