Pet of the week: Cricket is an adorable lady searching for a forever home

Posted at 9:20 AM, Sep 09, 2016

Our pet of the week comes from Pet Pal Animal Shelter in St. Petersburg.

Cricket is an 8-year-old female Miniature Pinscher Rat Terrier mix. Shelter workers say she is smart, easy going and very friendly.

She would make a wonderful addition for someone living in an apartment or condominium. Older children would be fine for Cricket. A meet-and-greet session would be needed for other dogs.

She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $200.

For more information about how to adopt Cricket, call Pet Pal Animal Shelter at (727) 328-7738 or visit

Pet Pal Animal Shelter is located at 405 22nd Street South Street in St. Petersburg. You can visit all their dogs and cats up for adoption Tuesdays to Fridays from 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 to 4:30 p.m.
