LARGO, Fla. – SPCA Tampa Bay is waiving adoption fees during its Pocket Pet Palooza from Wednesday, July 19, through Thursday, August 31, for certain pocket pets and livestock.
The majority of animals like birds, rabbits, mice, chickens, and guinea pigs can be adopted without a fee from SPCA Tampa Bay.
More than 100 pocket pets and livestock are awaiting a loving home. These animal companions come in all shapes and sizes, and they’re waiting to be adopted. This Pocket Pet Palooza offer excludes large farm animals, reptiles, and large (bird) avian breeds.
When: Check spcatampabay.org/locations for hours, adoption office is closed Monday and Tuesday
Where: SPCA Tampa Bay, 9099 130th Avenue North, Largo, Florida 33773
How: View adoptable pocket pets and livestock on spcatampabay.org/pocket-pets or come to the shelter in Largo.
Potential adopters are encouraged to come early to the shelter and bring a carrier or housing that’s appropriate for your new pet. Please note: One fee-waived pocket pet or livestock available per person.
Pets can bring love to a family that lasts a lifetime. SPCA Tampa Bay’s staff and volunteers can assist families in finding a pet that’s right for their family’s lifestyle. The adoption team focuses on matching families and pets for long-term success.
Past fee-waived adoption events have helped animals find new loving homes in only a few days, which frees resources for SPCA Tampa Bay to provide care and shelter for animals in our community. SPCA Tampa Bay cares for more than 8,000 animals each year including wildlife.
