Adopt a Rabbit or Other Pocket Pet

Plan your visit and find the perfect pocket pet for you. We have rabbits, rats, mice, hamsters and birds all waiting to be adopted at SPCA Tampa Bay. These homeless pocket pets, critters and livestock have big things to offer with their playful personalities and cuddly fur and feathers.

If you are ready to adopt a rabbit, hamster or guinea pig at SPCA Tampa Bay, check our website right before you arrive to see if they are available. To assist, here’s some basic care tips for a pet rabbit.

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 small animal adoptions. If you do not bring one with you, we have those items for sale as well.
