Abuse Survivor Dog in Miami Needs Home

Lisette Valdes is no stranger to animal abuse and neglect. As a one person rescue operation for the past 5 years she has Aleaapproximately 37 cats and 8 or 9 dogs at a time in different boarding facilities and vet’s offices.

She has too often witnessed man’s cruelty to his “best friend” as the cases she takes on are often extreme abuse but she cannot say no to an animal in need. One of the worst cases she has dealt with was in November 2011 when she single handedly rescued 12 dying dogs from the home of a drug addict. The addict would forget about the dogs for days and weeks at a time. When Lisette entered the home she found a horrific, heartbreaking scene. There were 10 dead cats, 2 dead puppies and 12 starving, dehydrated dogs. Unfortunately it was too late for the dead cats and puppies but through Lisette’s passion and dedication the 12 surviving dogs were all re-homed and are all currently happy and healthy.

But all of this prior experience and rescue could not prepare her for an abuse case involving a young female Pitbull. On February 24th, 2013 Lisette was notified by a friend that a dog was experiencing serious abuse at the hands of her mentally challenged owner. The owner held the dog down while intentionally and with much calculation cut her repeatedly with a knife and a machete. The owner was arrested and Lisette took possession of the dog. Since Pit bulls are illegal in Miami the dog had to be taken for medical help and boarding outside the city limits.

“Alea is the young Pit bull’s name and despite having experienced the worst kind of abuse she is still a happy, loving dog. She is currently in a boarding facility where everyday her wounds are cleaned and she is receiving constant medication. Her right paw had two toes nearly cut off; her right leg had a laceration so deep the bone was visible. She required many stitches and medical treatment.

Alea is currently in boarding. Lisette is continuing to pay her boarding and vetting bills. She is looking for anyone who can either foster or adopt Alea. She describes Alea as smart, obedient, well-mannered and not demonstrating any signs of aggression at all. At the boarding facility she is with a lot of different dogs and gets along with all of them. She is just thrilled to be in a safe place where no one can hurt her again.

Please help Lisette find a permanent home for Alea. This dog has known nothing but pain and torture at the hands of the person supposed to be her caregiver. Please share and network her information.
