Ready to become a pet owner in 2010?
If you are looking to kick off the New Year with a new pet, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay has hundreds of dogs and cats in search of loving owners.
The Tampa shelter shared photos and descriptions of some its adoptable pets. Take a look at tampabay.com's Pets Photo Gallery, to see if any of them may fit in with your family.
Danika, a Labrador Retriever mix shown on right, arrived at the shelter with a litter of puppies. All the puppies have since been adopted, but she's still waiting for a new owner to claim her.
Sims is an energetic and outgoing kitten looking for love. She will do best in a home with another cat so that she will always have a playmate, says Krissi Cuccia, the Humane Society's adoption counselor.
