When I lost my sweet Saki a few year ago around Thanksgiving, my world fell apart.

When I first rescued her, I never imagined she would bring me so many years of happiness. I take every opportunity to honor her memory and all the laughs and love we had over the 20 years we were together. In this issue, we introduce you to adorable rescues ready for their forever home, share insights from Miami’s leading dog behavioralist, highlight dog-friendly city living, spotlight canine couture and showcase important pet initiatives and non-profits that launched right in our own backyard. We even found a rescue rosé you can sip while you flip through our pages! In “Best Friends,” local families share how their heroic stories of rescue yielded life-altering changes for their newfound furry companions. This month’s extended fashion editorial “Compassion Unleashed” gives Penny, Paco, Lucy, Diva, Tango, Kika & Mr. Z a podium to not only showcase all of the amazing adventures they share with their adopted families but also the challenges they endured before being rescued. Through passion, determination and action, we can inspire movements and uplift communities. Every act of kindness and advocacy contributes to the collective journey, ensuring we each do our part to help make the world a better place.
