Dog Rescue Mourns The Loss of Beloved Worker After Deadly Attack


Two Women Transported to Hospitals

Earlier today, many people began to post in the LivingInOaklandPark.com Facebook group about a helicopter circling over North Andrews Gardens neighborhood. At a little before 11:00 AM, BSO received a call regarding an animal bite at 110+ Abandoned Dogs of the Everglades Animal Rescue. BSO deputies of the Oakland Park district and Oakland Park Fire Rescue responded to the scene. 

Two adult females had been attacked by a dog, and had to be transported to local hospitals. One woman’s wounds were severe EMS called ahead to alert the hospital that the incoming patients wounds were critical. Unfortunately, the severely wounded victim, Pam Robb, a volunteer at the rescue, a kind and gentle soul who clearly loved animals and loved helping them find new homes was pronounced dead at the hospital. 

The dog was captured and remains in BSO custody. 

A Deeply Felt Loss

Robb was working with Gladys a dog that was new to the rescue when the dog snapped and began attacking her. Another, second adult female worker, tried to add Robb and was injured in the process. Her wounds were, however, minor compared to Robb’s. 

The death of Robb has been a shock to the 100+ Abandoned Dogs of the Everglades Florida family and to everyone that knew her. On their Facebook page they shared: “Our Hearts are Broken for our dear friend Pam. our deepest condolences to her family and friends. We are all grieving and ask for you to please give us time to process this great miss fortune and loss of our dear friend. We thank you for your love and patience”.

There is no doubt that Robb will be forever missed by her friends at the rescue both two-legged and four-legged alike.
