We are excited about a new partnership with Dolly’s Dream, a program of the Levitetz Family Foundation headquartered in Boca Raton. Dolly was a bully breed or “square head” who opened the heart of the man who adopted her and taught him how loving, sweet and gentle these dogs can be. 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.

Not sure whether to microchip your pet? Microchips can be instrumental in reuniting people and their pets. Animal Services can scan stray pets for a chip and oftentimes return them to their owner without the animal ever spending a night in the shelter. In the case of FiFi, a 14-year old cat picked up as a stray and brought to the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast, his microchip was definitely responsible for reuniting him with his owner.

This week I am sharing the story of Fluffy, an 8-year-old female Siamese rag doll cat that is deaf and blind. Surrendered to the shelter in terrible condition, Fluffy was severely underweight, had scabs and fleas all over her body, and very thinning hair. Staff immediately got to work to rid her of fleas, treat her skin and get her eating and on her way to a healthy weight.

One recent unique resident was Prim the pig. Prim is an adorable little gal brought to the shelter by the Martin County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services Unit. About 8 months old on her arrival, Prim was at the shelter for about a month and half before being adopted. Although she certainly generated a lot of interest, it’s not your everyday adopter who is looking for this type of domestic companion.
