Hernando — Leonard

Leonard is a 3-year-old, 100-pound, white and pink male Potbelly Pig. Sadly, Leonard escaped from his fenced yard. When a neighbor returned him, the gate was locked and the previous owner refused to claim him from the shelter. He’s very social, smart, likes horses and is looking for the special someone with the space he needs to play. If you’re that person, call the Hernando County Animal Services at 352-796-5062.

Pasco — Pyke

Pyke is a 3-year-old, brindle male dog. This goofy guy loves to go on walks. Grab his leash and his eyes light up and he jumps around. He’s a bit skittish around new things, so slow introductions to humans and animal friends is recommended. To give him a forever home, call the Pasco County Animal Services at 813-929-1212.

Pyke's favorite thing is to go on long walks.

Manatee — Flora

Flora is an 8-year-old, 52-pound female mixed breed dog. She has allergies, but like humans, daily medication relieves her discomfort. Her motto is “play all day,” so she’s very active and agile. She prefers to be the queen of the castle, so she’s best suited as the only animal in the house. If you want to tire her out and spoil her rotten, call Bishop Animal Shelter at 941-792-2863.
