“I’d like to thank everyone for coming to Palm Trees and Paws and thank you so much for supporting SPCA Tampa Bay. It’s a wonderful organization and I hope you’ll take a tour and see the facility for yourself. It’s a wonderful place to get a forever pet. I’m hoping that people will realize there’s so much to the organization – they help in so many ways.” – Ellen Blakely
