Pinellas County Animal Services News
August is upon us and back to school preparation has begun. Everyone looks forward to FALL to get a break from high temps, kittens at peak intake, and stray dogs running loose after a fireworks event. Pinellas County Animal Services, our shelter partners, rescue partners, and many of our veterinary partners have and continue to successfully save, foster, and adopt this year’s batch of kittens while significantly lowering the euthanasia rate of tiny ones this year. This is thanks to our many staff, volunteers, rescues, and community supporters that have stepped up for the babies.
Another exciting event for the shelter pets in Pinellas County is the Clear the Shelters Mega Adoption Promotion sponsored by Hills, WFLA, and Telemundo on August 17th. Clear the Shelters is a nationwide event to promote the adoption of shelter pets and Pinellas County Animal Services along with many other shelters in the Tampa Bay area are looking forward to another successful super-sized adoption day this year. At PCAS all adoption fees are waived and our shelter will be open 9:00 am to 3:00 pm on Saturday, August 17th in hopes of adopting all our available pets into their forever homes.
As always, if any of your clinics have any questions about licensing programs or any of our other services please contact us at 727-582-2600.
