Every dog deserves to be in a loving home

At Polk County Bully Project we believe that we can end breed discrimination and cruelty by working together through education and community support.

Whether you’re ready to adopt, foster, donate or volunteer, you can make a difference for Pit Bulls and all Bully Breed dogs in Polk County, Florida. 


Make Polk County Pit-Friendly

Polk County is the #1 Kill County in Florida.

The mass killing of dogs that are innately good is much more than an animal welfare issue - it’s a social issue. We believe we can end discrimination and cruelty when we work together. 

Whether you’re able to donate, foster, adopt, or simply educate yourself and others, you can make a difference for pit bulls and all of Polk County.
