A Non-Profit Animal Shelter and Public Vet Center

SPCA Tampa Bay is the only non-profit, animal welfare agency that runs an open-admission animal shelter and public veterinary center in Pinellas County. Our shelter in Largo cares for more than 9,000 animals annually that have been surrendered by their owners, along with injured wildlife.

SPCA Tampa Bay has cared for Pinellas County’s homeless pets for more than 80 years. It was founded in St. Petersburg in 1940, and it moved to its 10-acre campus in Largo in 1962. SPCA Tampa Bay returned to St. Petersburg when it opened a second location – the SPCA Tampa Bay Veterinary Center – in 2016.
