Each month, the Dolly’s Dream Project sponsors two dogs available for adoption at Humane Society of the Treasure Coast. When you choose to adopt one of these dogs, you and your new furry friend will receive:
Polly is one of the absolutely sweetest pups around. She is affectionate and occasionally a rough-and-tumble player. Polly also has excellent leash manners and is definitely a volunteer favorite. She is most likely deaf and can sleep through anything – especially the noisy kennels here at the shelter! She is 5 years old and has recently completed treatment for heartworms. Polly is our longest resident dog as she has been in our care since early January 2019.
Joan of Arc has such an epic name and she is looking for an equally epic new home to match. She came in to HSTC as a stray back in mid-March, so we don’t really know anything about her past (or if she is on any grand quests). What we do know is that Joan is incredibly affectionate and very playful. She enjoys running, practicing on the agility field, and playing in the pool/ hose when it is hot outside. She knows several basic commands and is willing to learn more. Joan can be picky about her dog friends, so a meet-and-greet with any doggie siblings is a must; we want to make sure everyone gets along.
Walk through the kennels of Humane Society of the Treasure Coast 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. Humane Society of the Treasure Coast 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.
"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.
