WE NEED YOU
Since 1912 we have faithfully served the homeless companion animals of the Tampa Bay area and beyond.
For nearly three quarters of a century, we have sheltered and cared for hundreds of thousands of animals in the same building on N. Armenia Avenue in Tampa (built 1960).
Marked expansion in our programs, services and community outreach has left our facility antiquated and unable to meet our needs.
WILL YOU HELP US?
Total cost for construction of our new shelter is $17,182,000. That includes EVERYTHING from construction, parking lot, permits, cages, kennels and furniture.
We have raised $15,990,413 through donations and ongoing pledges.
That leaves us with $1,191,587 for our mortgage to finish it off.
WAYS YOU CAN HELP:
Make a general donation to the new shelter.
Any gifts over $500 will be listed on our glass donor wall featured in our courtyard.
Purchase a tile that will be featured in our Humane Education Center.
Each tile will be mounted within the center for all visitors to see.
OUR SHELTER IS OVER 59 YEARS OLD
We have outgrown our space & our walls are crumbling around us. We need your help to Shelter Them.
Thanks to the generosity of the following entities who share our passion for animals, a new, improved shelter for our animals is possible.
The DeBartolo Family has long served the Tampa Bay community through benevolent funding. They also consider their pets to be part of the family, and did not hesitate to support our project with a substantial gift towards naming rights.
