In the Winter 2016 Paw Prints we introduced Dolly’s Dream Project funded by the Levitetz Family Foundation. The project covers the cost for spay/neuter surgery for American Staffordshire terriers and mixes and helps with surrender prevention.
Dolly’s Dream has expanded and now they are underwriting the adoption fee of select bully breed dogs. In addition to underwriting the fee, they will cover the costs for the basic items that the dog will need to succeed in their new home. This includes a training crate, Sensation harness or No-Pull harness, chew toys, collar, ID tag, leash, training treat bag and basic dishes. If necessary, they will also cover the cost of obedience classes here at the Humane Society of Broward County.
Each week there will be two dogs featured who are part of the Dolly’s Dream Project and a sign is on their kennel door so potential adopters know about the offer.
Meet Our Current Dolly’s Dream Dogs
Lucinda (ID 653842)
Everyone at the shelter says I’m an amazing dog full of love. I like to run around, but also love to have my back scratched. I’m a youngster at three-years-old and I weigh 50 pounds. Some say I am built like a potato and need to lose a few pounds, maybe we can diet together? I’ll play if you want and gosh do I love toys that squeak. Oh, and did I mention that I’m also good with other well-mannered dogs? I guess you could say I’m a social butterfly who just wants a family to call my own. Thanks to Dolly’s Dream my adoption fee is sponsored, and I get to go home with goodies to help me settle in. If you would like to meet me or any other pets, please fill out the pre-adoption application under the adopt tab and then stop by. The shelter opens daily at 11 AM. Call 954-989-3977 ext. 6 with any questions.
Big Mac (ID A645701)
Calling all BIG dog lovers, I’m Big Mac and I would love to go home with you. I’m a big mush of a guy who is almost two years old, and I like to lounge on the sofa. I enjoy car rides, going for leisurely walks and I need proper chew toys otherwise I might find one of your shoes to chew on. I love to be with people but will admit I sometimes get excited and jump up. A home with older kids might suit me best, I don’t want to knock any little ones over. I have not lived with other pets, so the shelter staff are not sure how I would be. If you have another dog at home a dog meet would be best to make sure we like each other. I’m a big fellow and weigh 95 pounds, so be sure you have room for me. Sadly, my owner became ill and could no longer take care of me. I hope she is ok, but now I need to find another family to love. The Humane Society of Broward County is located at 2070 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-989-3977 ext. 6 for details.
