Animeals Program

Humane Society of Tampa Bay volunteers deliver free pet food once a month to homebound and elderly residents in Hillsborough County. The Animeals program enables homebound individuals to keep their furry companions even if they are unable to leave the house to buy pet food. People who have access to transportation are asked to use the Food Assistance program at the shelter.

The Animeals program delivers only dry dog & cat food. Due to budget constraints, we are unable to deliver specialty food.

Our dedicated team of volunteers use their own vehicles and cover their own gas mileage for this program. HSTB currently assists 125 residents at a cost of $1,500 per month. If you or your company has any interest in sponsoring Animeals, please contact the Director of Development at (813) 774-4346. If you would like additional information on Animeals or know someone in need of these services, please contact the Volunteer Manager at (813) 774-4344.

Here is a recent picture of our wonderful pup Allister! He is waiting for Santa! We got him in August of 2010 and he is a blessing to my husband and me. He fits right in and it feels like he has always been with us! Thanks so much again. ~Sharon L Granger
