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.

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.

Lisa/ Dachshund/Labrador

Owner contact: Merya
[email protected]

Lisa is a silky black Labrador/Dachshund mix, medium in size. She loves nothing better than to carry her cuddly sheep toy from room to room or even on walks for everyone to see. She is very loyal and will let you stroke/pat her as long as you will.  She is great company but does bark when the doorbell rings.

Lisa is now 11 years old. She was adopted as a puppy and was my father’s loyal loving dog until he passed away at the start of the pandemic 2 years ago. My mother, who is also elderly is not able to manage on her own anymore and needs to move away from Florida to join her  daughter overseas.

We really care for Lisa and want her to be rehomed by a loving new owner. She has not lived with other dogs but does adapt to a household with human visitors well. She is up to date with all her vaccinations and in great health. 

Dobby/Catahoula mix

Owner contact: Alyssa Dyer

He’s a 2 y/o Catahoula mix who is the very best dog in the whole world. He is a true athlete and a great partner for an active lifestyle. This smart boy loves learning new tricks and will do anything for a ball. He is up-to-date on his vaccinations.

Our favorite pastime is going on long hikes together on weekends. He will run alongside a bike or with a jogger. He’s a gentleman who doesn’t over eat kibble or treats. I put his food out in the morning and he grazes little bits throughout the day. 

He would be a great sidekick for an adventurous couple or a family with teenagers. He loves other dogs and cats, but he gets excited and plays a bit rough, so he needs supervision in the beginning.

I am looking into rehoming him because I recently moved from a house into an apartment and the space is too small for him. I also feel he deserves a family- as much as I try and would love to keep him, he is left alone a lot because of my work schedule and I don’t have anyone else to help. I would love to see him with people who can give him more attention than I can. But he is the best dog in the world.

Buddy/pitbull/mastiff mix

Owner contact: Natalie
[email protected]

Hello world, my name is Buddy! I’m a 90 lb, 3yo male pit/mastiff mix. But don’t let my size scare you, I’m a big mushy baby. I’m very cuddly, goofy, and expressive. To know me is to fall in love with me.

I’m neutered, up to date on all my vaccines, and have no health issues. I am looking for a forever home where I can be an only dog and have lots of attachment with my Person. I bond strongly to my Person and I’m always by their side!

Before here, I was living on a boat with my dad. He had diabetes and I would alert the neighbors when he was unresponsive. Unfortunately, my dad died in October. I’ve been fostered by my old neighbors since then, looking for my forever Person again.

I love swimming and running for a ball. I love ripping up coconuts and laying in the sun. The only thing I’m not a fan of is having to share my foster dad with the other dog here.

If you need a loyal, cuddly Buddy, come meet me! I guarantee you’ll love me instantly. Just no other dogs or kids, please
