On Friday, November 25, 2016, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay will be offering 75% off adoption fees for dogs, rabbits, and pocket pets over 4 months old. Adoption fees for cats over 4 months old will be just $5. The Society will be open for extended hours, from 10am to 7pm, and hopes to clear the shelter so that they can help more animals in need.
In addition to the adoption specials, the shelter will be decorated for the holidays and volunteers will be “Grillin & Chillin” from 10am to 3pm so that visitors can grab lunch or a snack while they visit with animals and adopt new family members.
We encourage adopters to arrive early as lines will form well before opening. View our adoptable pets.
Media is invited to attend. Staff will be available for interviews. Media contact: 813-774-4313
UPDATE: NOVEMBER 22, 2016: Adopters for all twelve puppies have been selected and notified. We received nearly 1,000 applications and know that many will be disappointed that they were not able to adopt. We hope those who weren’t selected will consider adoption another one of our wonderful homeless animals or visit another shelter or rescue group to give a home to a pet in need.

PRE-ADOPTIONS NOW AVAILABLE FOR CHOCOLATE LAB/PIT BULL MIX PUPPIES. Application link, please read carefully and follow instructions: https://humanesocietytampa.org/chocolate-labpit-bull-mix-pu…/
Originally we stated that potential adopters must come to the shelter on the morning of 11/25/16 to be considered as adopters for one of the Chocolate Lab/Pit Bull Terrier mix puppies. We did not anticipate the sheer volume of response we have received which is currently at well over 1,000 inquiries. For the safety of our animals, property, and the public, we have decided to offer pre-adoption approval in order to avoid people camping out on our property, long lines, and bitter disappointment on Black Friday. We believe this is the most fair way to handle the situation.
APPLICATIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY 5:00PM SATURDAY, 11/19/16. We will approve qualified applications on a first come, first served basis. The approved adopters will be notified no later than 12:00pm on Tuesday, 11/23/2016. Adopters must come to the shelter on 11/25 to finalize the paperwork and take home their puppy. We will not hold puppies.
*Please note that due to varied rates of growth of the puppies, all 12 may not be available on 11/25 but will be available to go home soon thereafter.
