Abandoned, Injured Dog Named Lola Needs Loving Home

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – UPDATE ON LOLA:  Lola, a severely injured dog found on a remote property in Southwest MIami-Dade, along with 11 starving horses, is not recovering at the Animal Rescue Mission. Lola is currently under veterinarian care at the Summit Boulevard Animal Hospital in West Palm Beach.

Lola was brought to the animal hospital by Amy Restucci, founder of the 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades organization, according to Dr. Iyampillai Arun, a veterinarian at the Summit Boulevard Animal Hospital who spoke to CBSMiami.com on Thursday.

Originally taken to Miami-Dade Animal Services, Restucci rescued Lola and brought her to Dr. Arun’s office.

Lola is being treated for severe bite wounds, ear mites and other health issues. Once she’s healthy enough, she’ll be spayed and placed up for adoption.

A severely injured dog found on a remote property in Southwest Miami-Dade, along with 11 starving horses, continues to recover and will need a loving home once she’s well enough to be adopted.

It’s believed the American Bulldog/Boxer mix, named Lola, was used as a bait dog for fighting.

The injured dog’s wounds were so severe she could not walk and had to be carried off the property.

The rescue organization, Animal Recovery Mission, is caring for Lola but said she will be available for adoption as soon as she is healthy enough. (see update above).

The starving horses, meantime, are recovering at the SPCA’s rescue barn in Hialeah.

Two additional horses were spotted running wild in the same remote area but rescuers were not able to catch them Tuesday. They plan to bring more people out to corral the horses.

    With all the issues with animals and the fraud involving donations your reports need to be completely verified before they are aired. Arm does not have this dog and thanks to them Lola ended up at the shelter. People will be donating to an organization that is not caring for her.

  5. Chris says:

    Animal Recovery Mission DOES NOT have LOLA in their possession. She is being cared for at Summit Boulevard Animal Hospital thanks to 100+ Abandoned dogs of Everglades. DO NOT make donations to ARM!

  9. Alexandra says:

    The man above claiming to have Lola is scamming. He is pocketing your donations. Summit Boulevard Animal Hospital via 100+ Abandoned Dogs of the Everglades is the credible rescue group and Lola is hospitalized with them, and only them. Do not be taken in…you’re only putting money in the pocket of liars.

    1. Yvonne says:

      DO NOT DONATE TO 100+ ABANDONED DOGS OF EVERGLADES. Both Amy & Camille affiliated with the solicitation page “100+ Abandoned dogs of Everglades” are fraudulently soliciting for funds for the Everglades dogs… they collected more than $12K & are not using those funds for those Everglades dogs. BEWARE… FRAUD… 100+ ABANDONED DOGS OF EVERGLADES… DO NOT DONATE TO THEM…

  10. Kathleen Gentile says:

    You should get all your facts straight before you go public with anything. All that rescue did was dump her at a high kill shelter then walk away

  11. Beth says:

    100+ ABANDONED DOGS HAS THIS BABY NOT ARM. ARM IS LIEING TO PROFIT OFF THIS PUPPY. I TRUST 100+ ABANDONED DOGS THEY ARE THE RESCUE GROUP WORKING TO SAVE ANIMALS.

  12. Wendy says:

    Hey, you need to correct the name of the rescue group to 100+ Abandoned dogs of Everglades. Pleaseeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Lisa pinto says:

    100+ Abandoned dogs has this dog!!! They stepped up when needed (as always)! Please correct your information so the person claiming to have Lola does not profit from an attempted scam!

  14. Melanie Agnello says:

    ARM does not have this dog, 100* abandoned dogs, Amy came to her aid and got her out of a high kill shelter. Facts should have been verified. Disgrace trying to collect money for something you did not do, and use a hurt dog to profit.

  15. Katherine says:

    100+ Abandoned dogs of Everglades Florida has Lola. Please correct this mistake. There are much needed donations going to the wrong rescue. Thanks.

  16. Rene says:

    Please correct your information on this website. ARM does NOT have this dog and are still accepting donations. What a fraud.

  17. Renee says:

    You would think that a news station would get their facts straight before reporting. 100+ Abandoned Dogs of the Everglades has Lola. How do you not have your facts together before reporting??

  18. Patricia Weinert says:

    I have seen several posts online about adopting Lola so I searched them. I am posting the first one I found, please make a correction so the money WILL go to Lola and not a lowlife.

    ARM is perpertrating a fraud. They should be held accountable for this. It is a scam!

  20. Debbie Mainiero says:

    THIS DOG IS NOT WITH THIS RESCUE! SHE IS UNDER THE CARE OF 100+ ABANDONED DOGS OF EVERGLADES FLORIDA.

    DO NOT BE DRAWN INTO A SCAM!

  21. Debbie Beracha says:

    100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades has this dog, ARM does not have this dog. Do not donate to ARM !!!! If you feel more comfortable, donate directly to Summitt animal Hospital, call and verify Lola is there, DO NOT DONATE TO ARM. You may see her video on page of 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida, then call to verify if you need to.

  22. Charice Zajic says:

    This “rescue” brought Lola to a kill shelter. They obviously had no intention on following through with her rescue as she would have been killed at Miami Dade. It wasnt until now that they wanted Lola… once they heard Amy Restucci from 100+ abandoned dogs of Everglades Florida stepped up to save her. They wanted the credit and the donations, but not the dog… Its that simple!! Make the correction!

  23. Debbie Perrucci says:

    NO donations to ARM!! If they’d lie about possession of this dog, what else are they lying about!!?? It seem that there is a lot of fraud “out there”! Don’t fall for it, send your donations to Amy R, or Summit An
    imal Hospital. There people are JERKS, to say the least!

  24. Debbie Perrucci says:

    Hmmm, you’d think a CBS affiliate would get the facts right before they go public with it!

  25. maria grogan says:

    THIS DOG IS NOT WITH THIS RESCUE! SHE IS UNDER THE CARE OF 100+ ABANDONED DOGS OF EVERGLADES FLORIDA.

    DO NOT BE DRAWN INTO A SCAM!

    1. cbs4lisa says:

      Thank you to all the readers who informed us that Lola is being treated at a different location. The story has been updated and we certainly wish the best for Lola.

      1. jennifer stevens says:

        cbs4 though your story has been somewhat updated why not do a whole new story andput it on the news about the vet that has lola and 100+ dogs of the everglades. make sure the public knows that any money donated to ARM for lola was done under the false impression and lies perpetrated by ARM. make sure your viewers know they brought lola to miami dade. help people try to get their false donations back.

      2. Camille says:

        It’s still wrong. Amy didn’t bring Lola to the shelter. The SPCA?Animal Recovery Mission did!!!

  26. Animals Watch says:

    Could there be a Best friend that would appreciate loving pets much more than this Best Friend? When one knows what they could have and what they are now getting, things very special Happen! With time comes TRUST for both sides. Learn what that Best Friend can TEACH. In so many ways!
