Wags, purrs and MANY THANKS to the wonderful employees at BlueGrace Logistics who collected 50K lbs of dog and cat food for our animals during their 5th Annual Cats vs. Dogs competition.
BlueGrace President & CEO and HSTB Advisory Council member Bobby Harris was on site this morning to help deliver the food.
This supply will last us at least 5 months and will be used to feed our animals and for monthly Animeals deliveries to pets of homebound Hillsborough County residents.
What an amazing, generous group of people. Thank you Bobby and BlueGrace Logistics!


ABC’s The Now covers the story of Gunner, a pit bull found wandering by a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Deputy and brought to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay to find a forever home.

Gerald McCoy of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers helps us promote the adoption of large, adult dogs. These dogs are often overlooked in shelters but, as McCoy points out, make wonderful pets! They’ve got the skills and experience that puppies just haven’t learned yet; they’ve got GAME! So, help us spread the word that large (and small) adult dogs need homes too. See our amazing adoptable adults HERE! And, Go Bucs!
