Cash [Pasco County Animal Services]

Cash is available for adoption at Pasco County Animal Services, 19640 Dogpatch Lane, Land O’ Lakes. He is an active dog and is looking for a family who is just as active as he is.

Bishop [SPCA Tampa Bay]


Bishop is available for adoption at SPCA Tampa Bay, 9099 130th Ave N, Largo. He is only 10-months old but has been through more than most dogs. He’s a sweet and affectionate boy but a birth defect in his hind legs has made it difficult for him to find a new family. While Bishop gets around okay, he will require surgery in the future and needs a loving home that can provide him with the appropriate medical care and be patient while he grows out of his puppy stage. SPCA is open Wednesday-Friday 1p.m-7:00 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m-6 p.m. Learn more about this pet on our website at All pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

Daisy [Second Chance Friends]

Daisy Mae

Do you prefer daisies to long-stem reds? Meet your match in Miss Daisy Mae. She’s the anti-diva, the nice girl next door! Daisy Mae was discovered at a public shelter where she’d grown ill from exposure and stress. Her soft, sweet nature soon captured the hearts of foster volunteers who’ve successfully nursed her since November. Daisy is a laid-back lady that loves kids, other hounds, short walks, and tons of cuddle time. She’s not a danger to cats, but they’re not really her cup of tea. Daisy prefers a fenced-in yard and a sun-bathing doggie play pal. She’s housebroken, gentle, and cuter than cupid! Meet, greet, and adopt this Valentine in person on Sunday, Feb. 16 from noon-4 at Bullfrog Creek Brewing on Lithia-Pinecrest Road in Valrico. Everyone’s welcome at the fun, free “Market Day with the Dogs” bash. All adoptables come fully vaccinated, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and more from Find info on Facebook @SecondChanceFriendsInc.
