September 7th 2021, Meet Golda

Can you believe this pretty face has been stuck at the shelter for 7 years?!  When Golda originally arrived at the shelter with her puppies seven years ago, her puppies were adopted quickly. But for mama to linger for that long is just not right! Golda deserves a golden home for golden years.

Golda is a 66 pound boxer-mix.  She is a very happy, goofy girl, and always ready to go! Even at 9 years old, Golda is easily excitable and very active.  Golda also loves the water – in any form from her kiddie pool to the lake. Volunteers have taken her home for weekends.

She is house broken and well behaved in the home. She adapts well and is easier to handle and calmer in a home environment.  Because of her enthusiasm in meeting people, she would do best in a family with adults and teenagers. 

Golda has had mast cell tumors removed multiple times throughout the years and most recently last month. The tumors are completely removed.  Overall Golda is in good health.

To meet or adopt Golda, call Maria at 786-205-6865.

Debbie is one of our most dedicated volunteers. She organizes off property events to promote and raise awareness of our shelter.  She organizes our Sunday morning dog walks at Fairchild Gardens, which are very popular with foster parents and often recent adoptive parents join us, too. She recenty planned and organized the Kira Kulture Paradise Pump and Pups event and the Fairchild Tropical Gardens Dog Bazaar.  Pictured with Debbie is Cookie, a former resident of Born Free, who Debbie took home as a foster and quickly fell in love with and became her forever mom.  Stay tuned for future evens and look for Debbie.  Thank you, Debbie for all you do for Born Free Pet Shelter.
