Glimmer of Life, Small Dog Rescue of South Florida

Glimmer of Life is a 501(c)(3) 100% non-profit, no-kill rescue organization dedicated to saving the lives of neglected, abused, sick, and injured animals whose devastating health conditions would have caused them to be euthanized anywhere else. Over 11,000 animals are euthanized each day in the United States. Many of which could have been saved. Glimmer of Life rescues small dogs that have been neglected or abused, or are facing euthanasia in the South Florida area to give them the chance at life that they deserve. We provide great care, love and affection, and any necessary medical attention before placing them into a safe and loving forever home! We very much rely on caring, selfless individuals who volunteer their time and resources for a great cause! If you, or someone you know, would like to make an impact on the lives of these sweet animals, please Click Here to find out how you can help! PLEASE NOTE: Our mission is strictly to rescue small dogs that have been neglected, abused, or are in need of lifesaving medical treatment. We do not accept pets as drop offs.
 
 
5/18/17 - Your Donations Helped Fund Hollywood's Lifesaving Surgery!
 
We are happy to announce that Hollywood has made a full recovery following lifesaving surgery! He arrived in such terrible shape that we almost thought we might lose him. Initially, his bloodwork revealed that he wasn't healthy enough to undergo surgery, and his infection only continued to spread. But luckily, the antibiotics kicked in, and Hollywood was able to get the surgery he so desperately needed. He has since made a full recovery, which would not have been possible without the help of the Hollywood police department, Ed Degelsmith, and everyone who made a donation in his name. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts! Hollywood is a very special dog, and we couldn't have done this without you!
 
 
4/20/17 - Glimmer's Latest Rescue Needs Help
 
 
 

UPDATE: Hollywood survived his lifesaving surgery and has made a complete recovery! He also found a wonderful new home!

We've just accepted a Yorkie rescue in urgent need of medical care. This poor little guy was found on the street and dropped off at the Hollywood Police Station. He's in really rough shape and was taken in to see Dr. Elizabeth at Hometown Animal Hospital yesterday. X-Rays and bloodwork confirm that he is suffering from a painful infection and complete blockage of his bladder due to stones. He is in urgent need of lifesaving surgery, but is not yet healthy enough to undergo the procedure. His bladder has been drained, he's been catheterized, and hooked up to IV antibiotics to help fight the infection. If all goes well, we hope to have his surgery scheduled for next week.

6/14/16 - Your Donations Helped Fund Luna's Tumor Operation

Thanks to everyone who donated, we were able to raise the funds necessary to get Luna the operation she so desperately needed.

Luna suffered from massive tumors of the mammary glands, a common condition among unspayed females. Her tumors were successfully removed, and she was spayed. We are still waiting for the pathology results to rule out cancer. In addition, she suffers from glaucoma in her left eye, which is a very painful disease. If left untreated, glaucoma can lead to permanent blindness, so that's next up on our list to fix!

There are still several other rescues in need of urgent medical treatment. If you can find it in your heart to make a donation today, please click on the link below. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. 100% of all donations received go directly towards the care of the animals. 

 
 
6/9/16 - Your Donations Helped Fund Angie's Eye Surgery

Thanks to everyone who donated, we were able to raise the funds necessary to get Angie the eye surgery she so desperately needed.

Angie suffered from glaucoma, a very serious and painful eye disease in which fluid build-up puts extreme pressure on the eyes. If left untreated, glaucoma can result in permanent blindness... which is exactly what happened in Angie's case. Although her eyes could not be saved, she will no longer be in pain. Her surgery went well, and we hope for a speedy recovery!

There are still several other dogs and cats in need of urgent medical treatment. If you can find it in your heart to make a donation today, please click on the link below. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. 100% of all donations received go directly towards the care of the animals.
