For more information on a particular dog, email firstname.lastname@example.org but ONLY if serious about adopting, and ONLY if you are able to GO TO the shelter in-person. Please do not email for status updates… the only thing you will accomplish is spamming their inbox and causing REAL adopter emails to go unnoticed.

Animal Control of Bermuda: We ask that you change the laws pertaining to the ban of Pit Bull ownership in Bermuda, and as a result immediately cease the planned euthanization of Hershey and immediately return him to his family.
After being stolen from his family Hershey was recovered by the police and handed over to Animal Control. Upon attempting to collect Hershey from Animal Control the family was told that Hershey fell under the classification of an illegal breed, and as a result would be scheduled for immediate euthanization.
Hershey has been unconditionally loved and cared for by his family, they have taken him to obedience school, properly trained him, and have given him nothing but love. Hershey has no record of being a violent dog, and has no record of problems.
We desperately urge the Hon. Sylvan Richards, and directing members of the Bermuda Animal Control to reconsider this decision, and repeal the law regarding Pit Bull ownership in Bermuda.
reindeer-in-a-blazer asked: Hi, I came across your post about Rocco's amputation. I'm really sorry to hear it, and I know firsthand how tough it can be. I lost my pit bull/chihuahua mix - Eddie - to a cancer-induced spleen rupture in October. She was my first dog; I grew up with her. So I really do know what it's like, and I empathize with you so much. All I can say is do your best to stay strong, but it's okay to cry if you need to. You and Rocco have my prayers and love. :) P.S. Pitties are my favorite breed.<3
