Adoptables at Risk: This Well-Behaved Missy Needs a Loving Family

One-year-old Missy is a playful pup who is house broken. She is filled with energy and enthusiasm. But so far she's been passed by. Can you help?

Patch has partnered with Pinellas County Animal Services to bring our readers Adoptables at Risk, a weekly column that highlights dogs and cats that have overstayed at the county shelter and are in immediate need of a forever home.

The shelter has limited space and must get pets adopted in a timely manner to free up kennels.

Missy has been at Pinellas County Animal Shelter for around two months.

Missy is a big playful pup who loves to romp around and run! She's a high energy girl and needs plenty of exercise and attention. One great positive is that Missy already has house-training, a blessing for any rescue dog.

How to Adopt

Missy is ready to go to her forever home. Adoption costs $35 and includes the first set of shots, spaying or neutering, a collar and leash, a bag of food and a toy for the dog. We've attached an adoption form (PDF) to make it easy.

Adopt Missy, and we will feature your photo with your new pet on Patch, too!

How to Help

If you can't adopt, but still want to help, Animal Servces always needs volunteers.

Contact Kelli Becraft at kbecraft@co.pinellas.fl.us for more information.

If you want to see other animals available for adoption, Pinellas County Animal Services will be having an event at the Animal Services this Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. showcasing some adorable pets.

Patch also will host an event at the shelter next month. Check back next week for the next installment of Adoptables at Risk and learn more about it!

 and  They both still need to find a good home. Each week that an Adoptable at Risk isn't adopted, we'll keep listing them!
