Animal Statistics

SPCA Tampa Bay CEO Martha Boden and her adopted dog Wingnut were joined by Pinellas County Animal Services director Doug Brightwell, Humane Society of Pinellas executive director Stacey Efaw and Friends of Strays board president Mo Eppley for a news conference to announce the Pinellas County Pet Partnership’s 2018 Animal Welfare Report. This report, started in 2012, is a singular set of data from our combined facilities which presents a clear picture of animal welfare in our community.

Changes we’ve seen over time 2012 – 2018:

  • A 16% increase in adoptions
  • A 50% decrease in shelter euthanasia
  • A 24% decrease in stray intake
  • A 34% decrease in pets surrendered to shelters

The objective is to create a shared reporting methodology. Figures and rates are shown for dogs, cats and other species – rabbits, hamsters, birds, wildlife. Live release is calculated using the ASPCA’s formula. The rate is calculated by dividing the number of live outcomes (animals returned to their owners, adopted or transferred to other organizations) by the number of live (strays, owner surrenders, etc.) admissions.
