HHS awarded Dolly's Dream Dog Grant

Halifax Humane Society has been awarded a $10,000 grant from Dolly's Dream to help promote the less popular dog breeds like pit-bulls. Each dog is carefully selected and is ready for adoption. To see more information about the program and what is included, visit /Dolly-s-Dream-Dogs-6-93.html



Daytona Beach, FL - The Halifax Humane Society is extremely excited to announce their new partnership with the Dolly’s Dream Adoption Program. The focus of this program is to help bully breed dogs meet their perfect, forever families by giving them a special spotlight and raising awareness of these amazing breeds that are frequently overlooked by potential adopters. How exactly does Dolly’s Dream change the game for these homeless dogs in need? Thanks to a very generous grant from Dolly’s Dream, Halifax Humane Society can now equip the adopters of Dolly’s Dream dogs with essential tools that will help them make a smoother transition for the pet as they welcome them into the family; all for a waived adoption fee (usually $70-$100)! All dogs are up-to-date on vaccinations, have been spay/neutered, and have been microchipped.

This program begins July 6, 2018 and will end December 31, 2018. There will be two Dolly’s Dream dogs featured at a time.

We all know that opening your home to a new furry family member can be stressful, especially when you are first trying to help him or her acclimate to a new environment. Thanks to the help of Dolly’s Dream, adopters are able to bring home their four-legged friends with all of the essentials which include: a training crate, a no-pull harness with leash, a branded collar, a personalized identification tag, food and water bowls, a training treat bag, a 30 lb. bag of Blackwood food, a Pet Caress specialty shampoo, one basic grooming session from the Lee C. & Patricia Culler Boarding, Grooming, and Travel Center, one night free boarding, an Xtreme Kong chew toy, and one private obedience lesson. Wait, why would they provide over $400 worth of doggie supplies for no cost? Because the goal of Dolly’s Dream is to help restore the image of bully breed dogs by sending them into the right homes with the right tools needed to let their true, loyal and playful personalities emerge! These dogs deserve the chance of a loving, forever home. Dolly’s Dream and Halifax Humane Society want to give these dogs that chance.

“We want to break stereotypes associated with these bully breeds. Approximately 66% of all dogs entering Halifax Humane Society in 2017 were bully breeds. Every dog is evaluated and deserving of a good home, Dolly’s Dream helps further support eligible adopters”, said Barry KuKes, Community Outreach Director of Halifax Humane Society.

This partnership is a real “dream” come true for homeless dogs around our community. It is a significant step towards reestablishing a good reputation for bully breed dogs and to reducing the number of homeless dogs populating our shelters. The next step is to visit Halifax Humane Society Adoption Center located at 2364 LPGA Blvd., Daytona Beach, FL 32124 and meet the extraordinary dogs in the program!
