Do you have a specific breed in mind? If you aren’t able to find your purr-fect match here at SPCA Tampa Bay, please use these resources to find the animal type you want:
We are open for adoptions. As a for-all shelter our goal is to stay open and offer as many of our standard services as possible. To assist in your adoption experience we’ll start new measures on Friday, March 27.
Our lobby and shelter area will be by appointment only to adopt your new furry friend! Before visiting the animals please contact us to reserve a time slot and with any questions at 727-586-3591.
These steps will help us protect the community and our staff. Before visiting the shelter animals all customers will be asked about any possible exposure to COVID-19.
In addition, as of March 26, 2020, certain non-emergency veterinary surgeries, such as spay/neuter and dental cleanings, will be suspended. This change will affect animals being put up for adoption at our Largo campus, and customers looking to have their pet spayed or neutered at our Veterinary Center in St Petersburg.
Animals who are adopted before they are spayed or neutered will go home with a voucher for surgery at our Veterinary Center at a later date. At this time, the Veterinary Center is booking non-emergency surgery appointments for dates after April 12th, but that date may change depending on available resources.
This decision is based on recommendations from several animal welfare organizations, including veterinary colleges and the ASPCA. Many have issued statements like this one.
Not conducting these surgeries for a short period will help shelters and veterinary centers like SPCA Tampa Bay:
• Reduce the use of resources such as personal protective equipment (PPE) and oxygen that may be needed in human healthcare.
• Keep staff focused on more critical care that supports our community’s animals during this uncertain time.
Thank you for patience and understanding. We will provide an update as soon as we have more information.
We value companionship and the hope for a forever home. While each animal’s time with us is only temporary, the love they can bring to your family will last a lifetime. Every animal at SPCA Tampa Bay, a For-All shelter, is eagerly waiting to meet you. All of the pets listed below are currently available for adoption.

Still looking for the perfect pet? The animals listed on this page are available for adoption... but they are not housed at or affiliated with SPCA Tampa Bay. They are staying with their owners until a new home can be found for them. This is a public service and these adoptions are private transactions between individuals. Always exercise caution when exchanging personal information or giving money.
