Pearl is a 2-year old, 56-pound pit bull mix who has had surgery on her eyelids and finished her heart worm treatment. She is in search of love, attention and her forever home. She is happy to sit at your feet or go for a brisk afternoon walk. Her adoption fee is $75. You must own your home to adopt her. Upon adoption, with the help of their “guardian angels,” all pit adopters will go home with a crate, leash, collar, Kong toy, small bag of Science Diet and free initial vet visit at Pet Pal Veterinary Clinic (where a one-month supply of heartworm and flea prevention will be provided). Additionally, a group training class will be offered by a certified trainer to provide guidance in leadership skills for all family members. Prior to adoption, all dogs have been neutered/spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and dewormed. If you’re interested in adopting from Pet Pal Animal Shelter, please visit her at Pet Pal Animal Shelter located at 405 22nd St. S, St. Petersburg during shelter hours Tuesday through Friday 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Visit or call (727) 328-7738 for more information.
