Redland Florida and its surrounding areas are the last vestige of rural living in Miami-Dade County. As such, we have an overwhelming homeless and abandoned dog population problem created in part by countless unaltered farm and nursery dogs, as well as by misguided urbanites using our farms and fields as dumping grounds for unwanted pets.
Founded in 2019 by Newton Siqueira and Amy Spadaro, Redland Dog Sanctuary aims to address the complex and multifaceted problem of pet overpopulation. We provide safe haven to homeless and abandoned dogs and serve as a last resort for dogs labeled (often erroneously) as aggressive, dangerous, feral or unsaveable.
In the most severe cases, we offer a permanent home for dogs assessed to be truly unadoptable due to health or behavioral issues. We are a small operation seeking to make a huge impact, doing work that few others have the skill, experience, or desire to do. We're operating above capacity almost every single day of the year, with the demand for intake far exceeding our ability to accommodate all requests. Our objective in creating this 3 year plan is to delineate a pathway to fiscal self-sufficiency, while concurrently expanding our services and holding capacity for the never ending stream of abandoned, unwanted and mislabeled dogs in our community.
