Cats Are Cool!


Because DJ Kitty found his forever home at the Trop, he has teamed up with the Humane Society of Tampa Bay to promote cat adoptions with this Public Service Announcement (PSA) produced by Nabors Media Group!

We all know that DJ Kitty is one cool cat, but ALL cats area cool and deserve loving homes, just like him! Every year, more than 7,000 cats are euthanized in Tampa Bay, simply because they have no home. We hope this PSA will help save more lives by encouraging people to open their hearts and homes to a cat in need!

Mention our “Cats Are Cool” PSA when you adopt a cat at our shelter and you’ll receive $10 off the adoption fee! View our adoptable cats

A good Samaritan found her wandering on her property near the accident site and brought her to us Tuesday morning, April 22. Her microchip matched our records allowing for the official confirmation.

Nina was reunited with Luke this morning at Tampa General Hospital and will stay with us until he is released. Thank you to all who helped spread the word.

She worked well with his wheelchair and the bond between them was quick and strong.

Thursday evening, April 18, 2014, Macner was in a car accident with Nina and, spooked, she ran away at the scene at Causeway Blvd and 41. Macner is recovering in a hospital and desperate to find his new companion.

Facebook posts, tweets and news coverage have brought the community together to search for Nina. Humane Society of Tampa Bay volunteers have been at the crash site searching for her. And, now, the Society is offering a $1,000 reward for her safe return.

“We have been amazed at the support from citizens across Tampa Bay who are helping spread the word to find Nina,” said HSTB Executive Director Sherry Silk. “We are so happy that Mr. Macner will recover physically but know that the return of Nina will bring the most complete healing. We hope this $1,000 reward will offer a renewed incentive for people to continue the search.”

If you see Nina or believe you know where she is please call our shelter immediately at 813.876.7138 or email us at
