Humane Society of Pinellas

Posted in Latest Pinellas County Veterinary News

The Humane Society of Pinellas (HSP) is dedicated to reducing the rate of euthanasia in Pinellas County. Neonatal kittens are a particularly vulnerable population with more than 2,000 euthanized in Pinellas last year due to lack of resources. HSP is seeking the public’s partnership to drastically reduce this number through our Kitten Crusaders Program. Together, with the help of veterinary clinics, animal hospitals, shelter/rescue partners, and citizen foster homes, we can provide loving care to kittens in need. There are many ways to be a part of the solution! Please contact Amanda Audia, HSP’s Director of Operations at AmandaA@HumanePinellas.org to join the Crusade to save these precious animals and make a positive impact in our community!

Pinellas County Animal Services News

Reseller agreements have been mailed out to all clinics and compliance agreements have been mailed out to all rabies clinics working with Pinellas County. Please return your agreement by December 31st to PCAS. Something new this year is that clinics can have access to the web-based data system that Animal Services uses to issue licenses. This means the clinic would be able to enter the license or renew the license and it would be updated directly into the system. The benefit of this is that the client’s license is current when they leave your office. Another benefit is that the clinic can look up licenses to see if they are already current or maybe even help a lost pet be reunited with their owners without calling Animal Services. There are many of benefits. If you are interested in this option, please call us at 727-582-2624.

SPCA Tampa Bay

Hello Iguanas

Gulf Coast Iguana Sanctuary is coming to SPCA Tampa Bay.  By the end of the month, we will become the new home for the iguanas from GCIS.  We’re finishing up the details on the new habitat and are excited for this new opportunity at education!

 Fa-la-la-la-Foster!

We had almost 30 animals go into short-term foster homes for the holidays.  We expected cats and dogs to be a part of the program, but we also fostered out a handful of rabbits and a pig!  These guys are back at the shelter as the holidays end and will be looking for their full-time homes starting Thursday at 1.

 Adoption Event at the Palm Harbor location

We are hosting our first ever adoption event in the Palm Harbor Animal Resource Center Saturday, January 4.  We’ll have cats, dogs and some pocket pets available for adoption from 12 to 4 pm.  Folks are encouraged to find a new family member or just stop in to say hi!
