About the Program

Walk through the kennels of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and many other larger animal shelters in Florida and around the nation and you’ll discover quite a few dogs we lovingly call “Square Heads.”  Big, tall, short, small they have one thing in common – a head that looks a bit “square.” At first glance, some would call a dog like this a “Pit Bull” or a “bully breed”.  But truthfully, these are simply the mixed breed dogs that are now one of the most popular and most beloved dogs in America!

Dolly’s Dream is a project to encourage the adoption of our “Square Heads” and to help counter the unfortunate stereotypes and myths that some people still believe about these dogs.  Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League finds homes and new families for hundreds of these dogs each year.  They are adopted by a wide variety of people – single people, couples, grandparents and families with children of all ages. 

How it Started

Picture of Dollydolly"Dolly” (pictured here) was a Square Head who opened the heart of the man who adopted her and taught him how loving, sweet and gentle these dogs can be.  No different than any other type of dog. 

Today, in her honor, Dolly’s Dream is to give dogs like her a second chance at life and the type of home every dog deserves.
