We depend on a unique and dedicated group of foster volunteers to help us save more lives! By fostering a homeless animal, you can experience the joys of being a pet parent without the lifetime of responsibility.

We have a community filled with all the things you should know about your new family member. 


Why Rescue AN Bimini dog?

Fosters & Volunteers


Bimini has become a second home to many South Florida residents. Many of which have rescued a stray dog aka "Potcake" or two from the streets which are known as the “King’s Highway” of Bimini. We have chosen to help dogs in Bimini because of the island's overwhelming need for vet care, shelter and compassion.  In the States, we have many shelters, humane societies, and rescue groups.  In Bimini (which has only 1600 residents) we have a few volunteers that take in some of the stray dogs that are in need of special attention. Unsterilized dogs roam the streets, reproducing at alarming rates.  Thousands of dogs die inhumanely, suffering from illnesses and starvation.  They are NOT given the right to die humanely, pain free, or peacefully.  Most die in extreme discomfort, never knowing love or affection.  For these reasons, we fight to raise awareness to the sufferings occurring in our own backyard.  We strive for a better future for all animals!
