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.
We are almost there! We cannot open our doors to your community’s shelter until the final $615,877.00 is raised. We are in urgent need of your help.
