Dogs may be man’s best friend, but some dogs carry a heavy burden of stigma against their breed. Of the 725 dogs that passed through our doors, 30% were pit bull mixes. The term “pit bull” does not refer to a singular dog breed, but rather describes a group of dogs in the terrier family that have a stocky, muscular build, short hair, and wide faces. Here at HSSC, we are committed to serving all animals in need, no matter the breed.
