Adoptable Dogs

Following our mission of preventing animal homelessness in our community, the Humane Society of Pinellas are happy you’re here. When you adopt a dog from HSP, you will take home a new pet that has been microchipped, vaccinated, and spayed or neutered. Our dogs are vaccinated according to shelter standards and up-to-date for the pet’s age and current health. This may mean your adopted dog or puppy may need additional vaccines post-adoption.


We are open to the public on a first come, first serve basis. Due to our shelter being under construction and having limited space for visiting adoptable animals, a HSP Staff or Volunteer will sign you in at the Adoption Gate. A counselor will escort you to either the cat adoption building or dog kennels depending on your interest. We ask for the safety of our guest and animals, you do not enter the adoption area unescorted.


After more careful review of the latest guidance from the CDC, Pinellas County is an area of “high transmission risk” due to the increasing threat of the Delta variant. The current CDC recommendation is that masks should be worn indoors, regardless of vaccination status, for areas of high transmission risk.

Therefore, effective until further notice, everyone is required to wear a mask indoors in all public areas, regardless of vaccination status. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Our website is updated live, so if a pet’s photo is present, he/she is currently available for adoption. To see our Adoption Center hours of operation, please visit our Contact Us page. Contact [email protected] or 727-797-7722 and choose prompt #2 for additional questions or information.

Blaze, Pittbull

2YO/Male/not neutered
Owner contact: Dorothy Elkahly 

Blaze Gunner is a 2 year old intact male Pittie.  He’s very loving with kids of all ages, other dogs and his best friend is a cat. Blaze was born Dec 17th 2019 and due to unforeseen circumstances we have to find him a new loving home.

He loves chewing on bones and playing tug of war. He’s a bit leash strong will need additional help to learn not to pull. He knows his basic commands and loves to jump up into your arms to be carried like a actual kid.

Blaze is kennel trained as well but doesn’t like being left for long periods of time he misses him hoomans! He is currently not up to date on vaccines.

Mackie T, Hound Mix

Loves all dogs and humans, no cats or other small pets Sweet Mackie T needs a new home. He loves all people and pups, but no kitties or any other pets. He is a country boy who loves to roam but I have a feeling he’ll trade that in for many belly rubs while beside you on the couch. Up-to-date on all shots and flea meds. I’m about 35-40 lbs.

Costa, Mixed Breed

Owner contact: Rozie Arrington 
[email protected]

I’m looking for a new home for Costa, he’s good with kids and seems to be ok with other dogs but can get territorial so if he can go to a one dog home that would be best. He is up to date on rabies, loving and a very good protector. We have our hands full at the moment and I feel like I’m not giving him the attention he deserves. 

Rocco, Lab/American Staffordshire Mix Breed

Age unknown/Male/neutered
Owner contact: Natasha Maldonado
[email protected]

Rocco is a sweet Lab / American Staffordshire Mix who was adopted 6 years ago from a rescue in Sarasota, FL.  He has lived with 5 children and 1 other dog all of his life without any issues.  He loves to go on walks and play fetch in the yard.  He knows many commands, like sit/stay/shake/out/off.  Rocco is a gentle giant who loves to be pet and snuggled.
