2014 Fall Making Tracks

Featuring AAHA Accreditation

Race Into Fall

The Humane Society of Tampa Bay and Verizon are teaming up to hold a “Race Into Fall With Half-Off Adoptions” event on Saturday and Sunday, August 9-10, 2014 from 10am-5pm. The Verizon Show Car, an Indy favorite driven Will Power, will be at the event and available for photos with volunteer professional photographer Norman Mark (Power will not make an appearance at the event).

Between 11am and 3pm on both days of the event, attendees will be able to purchase food, enjoy music by DJ Coswell, participate in activities for children, and get pet photos with the Verizon Show Car for a $5 donation.

“We are so grateful to Verizon for their generous sponsorship and excited to partner with them,” said Humane Society of Tampa Bay Executive Director Sherry Silk. “August can be a slow month for adoptions and we hope this event will help more animals find loving homes.”

This is an important opportunity for animal lovers in the Tampa area,” said Jeanmarie Milla, Verizon’s Florida region operations president. “The name says it all – animals looking for a home need to be treated humanely and we are very happy to team with the Humane Society and have Verizon employees supporting this effort.”

Dog Reunited With Family After 5 Years Missing

bella Dog Reunited With Family After 5 Years Missing

Bella greets her parents after nearly 6 years of separation.

Bella was adopted from our shelter to Simone Torres and William Holland when she was just eight months old. After having her for a year, she went missing and her new parents were devastated.

Today, after five years of separation, Bella was brought to Hillsborough County Animal Services as a stray and the microchip that we gave her years ago was traced back to her owners. They were ecstatic and went to pick her up right away! They immediately brought her to our Animal Health Center to be checked out for any health issues.

We are so happy that Bella was found and able to reunite with the people who love her. Please make sure your pets are microchipped, it really can make the difference between being lost and found … even after years!

Each Sunday, the Animal Health Center offers free microchips with any regular veterinary service. Find Out More.
