Our Ambassadors

SPCA Tampa Bay Ambassadors help the organization engage with the community and raise awareness for its facility, mission and most importantly, the animals it serves. Ambassadors are nominated based on criteria such as influence in the community, event participation, and of course, their love of animals.

For over 83 years, SPCA Tampa Bay has worked to bring joy to both people and pets. In celebration, some of Tampa Bay’s most influential and well-known residents have come together to share their joy. We call it spreading the Humanimality, and we invite you to do the same. All of the pictures below have been taken by Karen and Michael Joseph. Thank you Joseph Photography for capturing that unique bond between us regular folks and our furry and feathered friends.
