Two fabulous friendly dogs out of time at county shelter


Reddick is the perfect dog!


Lauren is sweet and puppy-like.

Looking for a dog you know will be sweet and friendly? Want a companion who will love you with all his or her heart? Look no further. In Tampa, FL, right now, two of those dogs sit in kennels waiting — but they won’t be given much longer to wait. They are on the list of dogs who are at high risk of being killed because of limited space at the shelter. Please share their story!

Lauren has been called “awesome” by the volunteers and her foster. She was in foster (probably while recovering from a doggy cold) and is now waiting for a home of her own. She knows sit, she loves to swim in a pool, and she sleeps in her crate. Lauren is still very much a puppy. She has puppy energy and needs a bit of puppy training, but she is very smart and very eager to please.

Lauren is ID#A1643464. There is more information on her Facebook thread. Her current status: high risk.

Reddick is an amazing dog who would fit right into almost any loving home. He was an owner surrender (which means he could be killed at any time), and now he is at risk of being killed because of limited space.

This amazing dog is extremely friendly. When a volunteer sat in his kennel with him, it meant the world to Reddick. His owner said that Reddick lived inside with him, knows sit, is leash-trained, house trained, patient and friendly around children, and has never shown aggression. In short — he is the perfect dog. And look at his adorable ears!

He is listed as a one-year-old Terrier mix and is heartworm negative. He is healthy are ready for a home of his own. If a rescue pulled him, he’s a perfectly adoptable dog.

Reddick is ID#A1648617. There is more information on his Facebook thread. Current status: at risk for euth due to space.


They are at the Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center, 440 N. Falkenburg Road, Tampa, FL 33619. The phone number is 813-744-5660. The shelter is open daily from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.

If someone is interested in either of these dogs, they must email and as soon as possible. In the subject line of the email, write: Do Not Euth Reddick (or Lauren)  ID# (insert their ID number). In the body of the email, include your contact information. You must be willing to pick up the dog tomorrow by 3:00 pm.
