A For-All Shelter

We are a non-profit, animal welfare agency that runs an open-admission for-all animal shelter and public veterinary center in Pinellas County. For more than 80 years we have cared for 7,500 animals annually 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. There is no time limit for an animalโ€™s stay at our 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 shelter.
