Who is Gulfport’s Pet Mayor?
Arabella, the Dalmatian won the people’s hearts in Gulfport’s 2023 Pet Mayor election. This election is a fun way to showcase your favorite furry friend and support two local causes: the Gulfport Historical Society and Friends of Strays, a no-kill shelter in St. Petersburg. Every vote costs $1.
The 11-year-old Dalmatian raised more than $2,200.
Arabella also works as a therapy dog, certified by Therapy Dogs International. Unlike service dogs, she visits nursing home residents and hospital patients. Most service dogs work with one person, but not Arabella. She works with everyone!
