Pinellas County Animal Services News
Pinellas County Animal Services is finishing up January and prepared to have a strong and positive year. The department implemented some organizational changes for 2021 with the goals of providing more educational outreach to the citizens and organizations in the county; increasing licensing and microchipping; and implementing programs for improving animal live release rates. With the help of our Veterinary Licensing Partners, Pinellas County achieved a significant milestone in January. There are now 200,095 active licensed pets in Pinellas County which is estimated to be approximately 44.5% of the owned pets in the county. Thank you to all our Veterinary Partners in helping with this achievement. Please stay healthy and safe.
