Adoption Overview

Meet our Matchmakers

I’m Krystal and I have 13 years of experience working with the four legged best friends. I worked with my first vet office for a year and took a year off then took on another adventure to my next facility for 7 years where I was trained almost everything I was taught. Then I found my way here the first time around for 4 years and learned so much about how much animals impact each person’s lives. I stepped away for a while now I’m back and love it.
Brandy and Yeti


Hey everyone, I’m Brandy and that is Yeti – my 5 year old fur-baby. ❤️ Here at Suncoast Humane Society I am one of the matchmakers, which means I help anyone who comes in to match up with the best fit, not only for you but, for the animals as well. You can find me in the office or off in the meet and greet rooms to find perfect homes for every animal I can. Before I became a matchmaker here at Suncoast, I was working on beginner grooming, and before that I worked in kennels. Animals have always been my calling, so come on in and let me help you find your fur-ever best friend.
