Patch has partnered with Pinellas County Animal Services to bring our readers Adoptables at Risk, a weekly column that highlights dogs and cats that have overstayed at the county shelter and are in immediate need of a forever home.
The shelter has limited space and must get pets adopted in a timely manner to free up kennels.
Paisley has been at Pinellas County Animal Shelter since March 2nd, which is too long to be without a home, according to Pinellas County Animal Services volunteer Eve Waart.
Paisley is a shelter wallflower, overlooked for other dogs. Volunteers say she just needs the chance and is the Cinderella pet for the right owner.
She will be perfect pet for an active family. This big girl is well-behaved but energetic and fun-loving. She needs an owner or family who will take the time to play, love and be active with her.
How to Adopt
Paisley is ready to go to her forever home. Adoption costs $35 and includes the first set of shots, spaying or neutering, a collar and leash, a bag of food and a toy for the dog. We've attached an adoption form (PDF) to make it easy.
If you bring your adoption paperwork over to the Petsmart at the Largo Mall (10500 Ulmerton Rd, Largo) after adopting, you get other items and coupons to help with pet care.
Adopt Paisley, and we will feature your photo with your new pet on Patch, too!
How to Help
If you can't adopt, but still want to help, Animal Serivces always needs volunteers.

If you want to see other animals available for adoption, Pinellas County Animal Services will be having an event at the Largo Mall this Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. showcasing some adorable pets.
Patch also will host an event at the shelter next month. Check back next week for the next installment of Adoptables at Risk and learn more about it!
