As of 2022, around 70% of households (about 90.5 million) in the United States owned a pet. When visiting The Humane Society of Tampa Bay, it’s not hard to see why so many families across the country choose to have a companion animal. Our adoptable animals are playful, loving, and as sweet as can be! 

With so many families choosing to have a pet, there are also many in need of veterinary care. And it’s no secret that this necessary care can be expensive, placing stress on many households.
