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.

The SPCA Tampa Bay Surrender and Animal Intake program no longer requires appointments.  Walk-ins are 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 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.
