Dolly's Dream Adoption Program - Gulf Coast Humane Society

Dolly’s Dream Adoption Program

Thanks to the Dolly’s Dream Project, Gulf Coast Humane Society has the opportunity to highlight two bully breed type of dogs at a time to help enhance their odds of being adopted and also to spread positive awareness these dogs so justly deserve.

The Dolly’s Dream Project will sponsor the pair of dogs, which brings a bevy of benefits to the adopter(s) when they decide to provide a forever home. When one of these dogs are adopted, a treasure trove of gifts are supplied, including:

Layer 82
  • – Leash, collar and harness
  • – Training crate (if needed)
  • – Food and water bowls
  • – Dog bed
  • – Toys
  • – Food and treats
  • – The Adoption Fee has been paid for by Dolly’s Dream!

His favorite activities are long walks, playing with the garden hose, giving sweet kisses and of course snuggles! Come see Brock at GCHS and it will quickly be one of the best decisions ever!

The sweet four-year-old Dorlisa is a very laid back girl weighing about 73 pounds who enjoys taking strolls and loves to play when she is in the mood.

Dorlisa needs to be the only pet in the house and probably not in a house with kids. This lovable girl will be a loyal companion for many years. Give Dorlisa a chance, there will be no regrets!

The start of Dolly’s Dream, is the beginning for new and happy lives

“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.

​Throughout shelters in the U.S., one of the most common dogs who occupy those kennels are “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”. Misinformation about these breeds have given many a bad reputation.

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. As a no-kill shelter, Gulf Coast Humane Society enthusiastically takes in every breed, with the ultimate goal in mind to find the perfect, happy forever home for all!
