Passion Project

Saving Lives, One Bully Breed at a Time: Supporting Miami-Dade Animal Services Pet Adoption & Protection Center

Are you passionate about animal welfare and the fair treatment of all pets? Do you have a soft spot for bully breeds, like pitbulls? If so, you may want to consider supporting the Miami-Dade Animal Services Pet Adoption & Protection Center. This is Valerie’s pick for her Passion Project because Val used to foster dogs and rescued and trained her first dog while she was in college.

This animal shelter, located in Miami-Dade County, Florida, is dedicated to providing care and protection to animals in need. However, the shelter faces a unique challenge - the breed-specific ban on pitbulls in Miami-Dade County. This ban has resulted in hundreds of pitbulls and other bully breeds being brought to the shelter, many of which are at risk of being euthanized.

As someone who is extremely passionate about bully breeds, Val personally chose to support the Miami-Dade Animal Services Pet Adoption & Protection Center.

If you have the time, consider volunteering at the shelter. Tasks such as cleaning kennels, walking dogs, and socializing with the animals can make a huge impact on their lives.

Finally, if you have the space and resources, consider fostering or adopting an animal from the shelter. This can save a life and provide a loving home for a pet in need.

In summary, supporting the Miami-Dade Animal Services Pet Adoption & Protection Center is a great way to make a difference in the lives of bully breeds and other animals in need. Whether you choose to donate, volunteer, or adopt, your support can help save lives, one bully breed at a time.
