About Us

Our Vision

Leading the Way because Every Life Counts.

Our Mission

Dedicated to ending animal homelessness and providing care and comfort for companion animals in need.

The Humane Society of Tampa Bay is a limited admission shelter. We only accept animals that we feel we can adopt. We do not take in stray animals. They need to be taken to the county facility where their owners can look for them.

We are a “No Kill for Space” shelter. That means our shelter will not euthanize an animal to make space for another animal. We do euthanize animals that are too sick to be treated or too aggressive or behaviorally unsound to be suitable for adoption.

We at The Humane Society of Tampa Bay do our best to find homes for as many animals as possible. We are committed to a community approach to help lower the euthanasia in our county. We have an aggressive transfer program which takes in animals from other shelters that are open admission and house animals that are at risk of being euthanized.

Hours of Operation

Happy Tails # 190
DisneyDawg came to us 2 years ago as a scared little pup who has turned out to be the best alarm/watch dog anyone could ask for, yet he is sweet and loving…once he gets to know you. He is a great “brother” to his older housemates and we’re happy to have him.

Here is a photo of him the day he came home from HSTB and one that was taken this summer. Isn’t he a handsome fellow?

Thanks for letting us share!
