Our History as a For-All Shelter
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Tampa Bay is the only non-profit, animal welfare agency that runs an open-admission For-All animal shelter and veterinary center in Pinellas County. The SPCA Tampa Bay animal shelter in Largo cares for over 8,000 animals annually that have been surrendered by their owners, along with injured wildlife. Plus, our pet hospital in St. Pete provides pet health care for dogs and cats!
SPCA Tampa Bay cares for dogs, cats, pocket pets, exotic animals, and livestock like goats and pigs. Animals receive immunizations, medical care, enrichment and loving care while they live at our shelter. Our adoptions team and volunteers work to match families with animals that are a good fit with the family’s home, lifestyle and personalities. Every animal receives compassionate care, regardless of its breed or size.
Create a community where every animal matters.
Through passionate collaboration with our community, we transform the lives of animals.
Our Core Values:
Compassion, Community, Customer Experience and Teamwork. Learn more.
SPCA Tampa Bay is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit locally governed by a volunteer board of directors. Like most U.S. animal shelters, we rely entirely on our program revenue and fundraising to sustain our operations, provide care for animals and serve the community. Despite a similar name, we are not affiliated with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) or Humane Society of the U.S.
A team of 90 staff members and 250 dedicated volunteers help us fulfill our mission.
