It is the goal of Dolly’s Dream to bring communities together by leadership, education, community involvement, awareness and rescue of pit bull type dogs and help dispel the stereotypical myths associated with them. (Sadly, American Staffordshire terriers, American bulldogs, bull terriers, and mixes of these breeds are prevalent in shelters across the country.) The Boca Raton-based foundation currently works with 15 shelters across the state of Florida and since the program began, approximately 2,000 “square-headed” or bully breed type dogs have been placed as a result of their assistance! 192 dogs have been adopted from the Humane Society of Broward County and 65 from Peggy Adams Animal Rescue, while hundreds of others were adopted from the 13 other participating groups. Dolly’s Dream underwrites the adoption fees, as well as supplies for the dogs that help the four-legged family members settle into their new homes. Click here to read more...
