Batman is a handsome Lab mix but because he had the misfortune to have black fur, he may not be saved. Because the simple truth is that black dogs are the last to be adopted. Whether it’s because people think they look scarier than yellow dogs or spotted dogs or just because they don’t photograph as well, it’s the sad truth.
And Batman is a great dog. He came in with a pink collar, but whoever bought him the collar didn’t bother with other, more important things like neutering or heartworm medication. A sponsor is willing to pay for his heartworm treatment!
We just love this sweet boy. He is listed as a 4 yo lab mix. He sat for treats without being asked and is a sweet and gentle boy who gives sweet kisses. Please share Batman, the shelter should not be the last place he lives!!! Play group notes show him to be tolerant and plays in an appropriate push/pull manner.”
He has been at the shelter for over a month and he is on the euthanasia list which means that when his kennel is needed, he will be killed.

ADOPT INFO: All dogs available for adoption are vetted and ready to go and expected to leave when you apply to adopt them. No holds will be placed on a dog. IF YOU WANT TO ADOPT, THEN GO TO THE SHELTER AND MEET THE DOG ASAP. IF THE DOG IS POSTED AS ON EUTH, THEN PLEASE EMAIL rescuepets@HillsboroughCounty.org and CC to firstname.lastname@example.org . Please include the name and ID number of the dog, your name, phone number, and when you can will to the shelter to meet them.
All dogs must be adopted in person. If you are out of area and willing to drive in and meet the dog and put in an application, we may be able to help get the dog to you when ready to go. If you are out of state and want to adopt a dog, you will need to find a rescue to pull, arrange transport, the dog will need a vet issued health cert for travel, and, most likely, temp foster while all the arrangements are being made.
