Join Us for a Pit Stop!
Fort Lauderdale, FL – In September of 2016 the Humane Society of Broward County held their first-ever Pit Stop event at the Funky Buddha Brewery. The idea was to promote the adoption of “bully breeds,” of which the HSBC, and many other shelters, see many of. These include the American pit bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, American bulldog and others. The HSBC wants to educate our community and raise awareness of these often misunderstood bully breeds, in hopes of having them viewed in a more positive light.
There are many stereotypes that are often associated with these dogs, but by taking the dogs out of the shelter and introducing them to people, they can then see for themselves how sweet and friendly the dogs are.
The Pit Crew (HSBC staff and volunteers) will be making several “Pit Stops” which are sponsored by Dolly’s Dream over the next few weeks and they hope you will come out and meet them.

When you adopt from the HSBC, all pets are spayed/neutered before going home. In addition they receive preliminary vaccinations, microchip, dogs seven months and older are heartworm tested, a limited 10 day health care plan from VCA Animal Hospital, 30 days of Trupanion pet insurance, a bag of Purina One and more.
The Humane Society of Broward County is a private, non-profit organization supported by donations from companies and people who want to help us help the homeless animals.

About Dolly’s Dream: It is our goal to bring communities together by leadership, education, community involvement, awareness and rescue of pit bull type dogs. Dolly is the first pit bull our president rescued. With Dolly, he was able to learn about this amazing breed and all the love they have to offer. This is the dog that dispelled all myths and taught him the importance of adoption. Because of Dolly we strive to continue to save dogs like her. Dolly’s Dream was created to rescue, rehome, and one day help restore the image of all bully breed type dogs. We partner with local rescue, shelters and humane societies to fulfill our commitment to these innocent and loving animals.
