Arrival Story:
Please read the story my meowmy wrote and check out my petition... After seeing a picture of Silvio online, in the Miami-Dade shelter as of 1/19/11 and up for euthanization, we decided to adopt him (we had him pulled and left the next day at 6am). He was listed as a 5-week old stray with no medical record. Upon receiving him, we rushed him to a veterinary hospital in Boca Raton, only 40 minutes away because we knew he would not make the 5-hour ride back to Gainesville to our vet. He stayed under emergency care with full consent to proceed with anything needed and he was even transferred to another facility for overnight care. We had received him filthy, infested with fleas and covered with flea dirt (flea feces and eggs), he had internal parasites, a respiratory infection, his behind was so covered in dried excrement that he was unable to relieve himself until after the vet was able to clean him, he had a badly swollen eye and both eyes were oozing. He had been gasping for air and was malnourished, with the vet's estimation of his age at only 3-4 weeks. He had been in the shelter form 1/19/11 until 1/28/11- nine days without someone cleaning him up, properly feeding him or even noticing that he was barely clinging to life. After 3 agonizing days waiting for this precious little angel to pull through, his little body just couldn't make it. Silvio passed away on Sunday, January 30, 2011. Our only comfort was that he was clean comfortable, warm and surrounded by a family who still loves him and will never forget him. We miss him so much. He was the tiniest, most beautiful little angel. We opened a petition in his name to tell Miami-Dade to improve their shelters: y-it-for-silvio-tell-miami-dade-an imals-services-to-improve-quality- of-care Little Angel Silvio will always be loved and always be with us. We miss you, lil Sil.

Thank you for the bottom of my little angel heart...

Over a thousand people signed our Say It For Silvio! campaign against shelter director Dr. Sara Pizano, one of several big movements that occurred blowing the lid off of the deplorable conditions at the MDAS shelter- it gave many other pawparents the courage to speak up about similar things that happened to their little furbabies as well.

The campaign at goverment center (see my pics of mommy), legal battle against MDAS' inhumane and unimaginable heartsticking incident (and subsequent removal of video monitoring by Pizano which was how the incident was caught), as well as the distemper outbreak, were all nails in the coffin that was Dr. Sara Pizano's carrer. I am so happy to tell you that Dr. Pizano, the target of our campaign, has resigned: 9276020/

The even better news is that a new and more modern $14 million shelter is in the works!

Luckily, my sisfur Tabatha was spared from MDAS and even though I became an angel from the neglect of MDAS, I know I went to heaven surrounded by the love of my family and all of YOUR love did make a change!

Thank you forom the bottom of our hearts!

With Love and Appreciation,
Dana and Jamison (pawrents), Angel Silvio (MDAS Angel), Tabatha (MDAS Survivor), Big Harry, Patches, Lumi, Zack and Angel Abby
