About SPCA Tampa Bay
SPCA Tampa Bay is the only non-profit, animal welfare agency that runs an open-admission animal shelter, pet training facility and public veterinary center in Pinellas County. Our shelter in Largo cares for more than 8,000 animals annually that have been surrendered by their owners, along with injured wildlife.
SPCA Tampa Bay cares for dogs, cats, pocket pets, exotic animals, and livestock like goats and pigs. Animals receive immunizations, medical care, behavior training and enrichment, and loving care while they live at our shelter. Our adoptions volunteers work to match families with animals that are a good fit with the family’s home, lifestyle and personalities. There is no time limit for an animal’s stay at our shelter, and every animal receives compassionate care, regardless of its breed or size.
Create a community where every animal matters.
Through passionate collaboration with our community, we transform the lives of animals.
SPCA Tampa Bay is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit locally governed by a volunteer board of directors. Like most U.S. animal shelters, we rely entirely on our program revenue and fundraising to sustain our op...erations, provide care for animals and serve the community. Despite a similar name, we are not affiliated with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) or Humane Society of the U.S.
A team of 80 staff members and 250 dedicated volunteers help us fulfill our mission.
