Who We Are

The Humane Society of Tampa Bay is a non-profit organization which was established in 1912. We are dedicated to ending animal homelessness and providing care and comfort to companion animals in need. Our organization offers shelter and adoption services to the community, and operates a low cost spay/neuter clinic available to the public by appointment. As a member of ASPCA(R) Mission: Orange (TM), we are working together with the other organizations in our community toward the goal of eliminating the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable pets.

Adopting A Friend

Our Humane Society receives thousands of unwanted dogs and cats each year. The major reasons people surrender their pets are: unwanted litters, landlord/tenant problems, or lack of time to properly train. Please examine carefully your preparedness to deal with pet ownership. We do our best to find responsible and appropriate homes for the animals entrusted to our care. We believe that owning a companion animal is a privilege, not a "right".

Other Ways to Help

If you cannot adopt a cat or dog at the moment, there are many other ways to help. Donations go a long way because we can purchase items tax-free, thus making more out of each of your charitable dollars. Please visit the following website to make a secure donation online


We also have a wishlist of items we can always use. http://www.humanesocietytampa.org/DonateSupport/WishList.aspx Volunteering is another excellent way to help the animals http://www.humanesocietytampa.org/DonateSupport/Volunteer.aspx
