Interested in adopting a pet — or just taking a peek at some cuddly canines up for adoption? There are dozens of endearing dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Tampa.

Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs currently available for adoption.

(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)

Kelly Kapowski, beagle

Kelly Kapowski is a female beagle dog in the care of Tampa Bay Beagle Rescue Inc.

Kelly Kapowski gets along well with cats, dogs and children. She is spayed, and she has had all her shots. She's mastered her house-training etiquette.

Kelly Kapowski's current caretakers say:

Kelly is a quiet girl who is happy to get love and attention. She enjoys playing with the one-year-old beagle in her foster home and is respectful of the old timer beagle. She hasn't figured out what the dog bed is for yet—she sleeps on the hall rugs. She is a work in progress. But with some training, she will make an excellent addition to a loving family.

She is already spayed and has had all her shots. She has mastered her house-training etiquette.

Notes from Lily's caretakers:

Meet Lily. This momma just had seven puppies. She loves to cuddle up and watch TV, but she also loves being outdoors and running around the yard. If you've got another dog or kids, she would get along great with them.

Gigi, greyhound

Gigi is a charming female greyhound dog currently residing at Bay Area Greyhound Adoptions Inc.

She is happy to keep company with other dogs. She's already house-trained and  has been microchipped, spayed and vaccinated.

From Gigi's current caretaker:

Gigi is a doll! Her trainer decided this lovely greyhound girl is just not born to be a racer. She is almost two years old and weighs 55 pounds. She loves to give kisses, is always on the go and has a blast playing with the other greyhounds in her foster home. She even tried to get into my lap on the way home from her racing kennel.

Hacky, greyhound

Hacky is a male greyhound dog in the care of Bay Area Greyhound Adoptions Inc.

Hacky is a social butterfly, and he gets along well with other dogs and cats. He already has had all of his shots, and he's neutered. He's mastered his house-training etiquette.

Here's what Hacky's friends at Bay Area Greyhound Adoptions Inc. think of him:

We named for the game hacky sack, because he loves to play. This beautiful dog is also super sweet and smart. The former racer loves to go for car rides, walks nicely on leash and will stand quietly for a bath. He's the only dog in his foster home and is not crated when his people are home. At night, he sleeps in his crate with the door open.
