A For-All Shelter

Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Tampa Bay is a non-profit, animal welfare agency that runs an open-admission For-All animal shelter and public pet hospital (veterinary center) in Pinellas County. If you are looking to adopt dogs and cats we have been serving the community for more than 80 years. We also have visitors to our shelter adopt rabbits, guinea pigs and more. Annually SPCA Tampa Bay cares for almost 7,000 animals that have been surrendered by their owners, along with injured wildlife.

Our Mission

Through passionate collaboration with our community, we transform the lives of animals.

Our adoptions volunteers work to match families with animals that are a good fit with the familyโ€™s home, lifestyle and personalities. This is the best place in Tampa Bay to adopt a dog or cat. There is no time limit for an animalโ€™s stay at our pet shelter, and every animal receives compassionate care, regardless of its breed or size.


Our Vision

Create a community where every animal matters.

SPCA Tampa Bay cares for dogs, cats, pocket pets, exotic animals and livestock like goats and pigs. Animals receive immunizations, medical care, behavior training, enrichment and loving care while they live at our animal shelter in Largo.

They are currently 7-weeks-old and will be available for adoption in mid-December, just in time for Jingle Ball in Tampa! ๐Ÿ˜ผ Nick is the instigator of the litter, always trying to get his brothers and sister to play. ๐Ÿ˜ธ Brian is the silly one, he loves to frolic and investigate. ๐Ÿ˜ฝ AJ holds her own as the only female in the litter, she is curious and adventurous. ๐Ÿ˜ป Howie is very sweet, he likes to lounge in your lap and cuddle. ๐Ÿ˜บ Kevin is a bit on the reserved side, he loves to climb and snuggle up with his siblings.If youโ€™re interested in adopting your own Backstreet kitten from SPCA Tampa Bay, keep an eye on spcatampabay.org and our social channels in the coming weeks for an official announcement of when the kittens will be available.***And to the Backstreet Boys, SPCA Tampa Bay invites you to make it โ€œA Very Backstreet Christmasโ€ by visiting the animal shelter when you are in town for Jingle Ball to meet your kitten namesakes!-----For more about the Backstreet Kittens, please visit: spcatampabay.org/backstreetkittens #AVeryBackstreetChristmas #BackstreetBoys #BSB #KTBSPA #BSBArmy #NickCarter #BrianLittrell #AJMcLean #HowieDorough #KevinRichardson #FLZJingleBall #iHeartJingleBall #SPCATampaBay #ForAll #Humanimality #BackstreetKittens #Kittens #Cats #animaladoption Nick Carter Brian Littrell AJ McLean Howie D Kevin Richardson 93.3 FLZ iHeartRadio ...
