On Saturday, October 3, 2015, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay will receive an emergency transfer of approximately 35 puppies from Calcasieu, Louisiana. These puppies were originally scheduled to be transferred to a shelter in New Jersey. However, because of the threat of Hurricane Joaquin hitting the East Coast, the shelter will no longer be able to accommodate them leaving their fate in the balance; had our organization not stepped in to take them, they would have been euthanized.
The puppies will be brought to us, safe and sound, by Loving Friends Transport at 11:00am. We are thrilled to be able to house these animals in need and give them a second chance at long and happy lives.
PLEASE NOTE: The puppies will not be available for adoption until after October 5. Please check our Adoptions Page for updates.
