Adopt a Cat or Kitten in Tampa Bay

SPCA Tampa Bay is discounting adoption fees on all animals during our Summer Adopt-A-Thon! All dogs and cats can be adopted this summer at half their normal fee. Additionally, all small animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, and reptiles are available to adopt in pairs for the fee of one.

Please note: If there is a specific kitten, cat to adopt or any pet you’re interested in, check our website right before your arrival to see if they are currently available. Our animal shelter in Largo has your cat and kittens to adopt in Tampa Bay. We also have older cats to adopt. Why adopt a cat from SPCA Tampa Bay? Cats and dogs are a great way to help humans relieve stress and anxiety. Plus, they help spread the humanimality. Do you have a cat at home and need to learn how to introduce your new kitty to the household? Check out our behavior handouts.

Potential adopters are encouraged to come to the shelter to meet with the animal of interest. During your visit, you can speak with an adoptions counselor about any questions that you have. You do not need to schedule an appointment, feel free to come anytime during our open adoption hours. Save time when you come and fill out/print your Adoption Information Sheet ahead of your visit. Please bring a carrier for cat adoptions. If you do not bring one with you, we have those items for sale as well.
