Penny for Pinellas

As Hurricane Irma was bearing down on our community, many of our residents looked to Pinellas County Animal Services to safely house their pets through the storm. Each year, our countywide shelter and adoption center provides care for more than 11,000 animals. This state-of-the-art facility was originally built with support from the Penny for Pinellas 1-percent sales tax, and the Penny has funded subsequent improvements over the years, including kennel ventilation, safe quarantine facilities and other upgrades.

On Nov. 7, 2017, citizens will consider renewal of the Penny for 10 years, 2020-2030. Additional upgrades to the Animal Services facility are among the numerous projects proposed for the Penny renewal, which include roads, bridges and trails, water quality, flood and sewer spill prevention, public safety facilities and equipment, parks and environmental land and community vitality projects.
