Surrender Services

We know that sometimes people are no longer able to care for their pets due to a variety of reasons, and we are here to help. As a For-All shelter these steps will help us protect the community and our staff.

Please observe social distancing when possible at our shelter. 

As of Sunday, January 2, 2022, our Surrender and Animal Intake program will no longer require appointments.  Walk-ins will now be the preferred way for SPCA Tampa Bay to help customers who are no longer able to care for their cats, dogs or other pets.

All stray cats and dogs should go to Pinellas County Animal Services.  SPCA Tampa Bay DOES NOT accept any strays outside of Pinellas County.

If your pet has a behavior condition, we can help. Call our Pet Behavior Tip Line team at 727-586-3593 and leave a detailed message for assistance.

If financial hardship is the reason you are considering giving up your pet, our food bank provides free pet food to dogs and cats of people in need.
