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.
