Pet Resource Center
Hillsborough County’s Pet Resource Center also adopts dogs and cats and is located at 440 North Faulkenburg Road. The operation offers an online kennel to review pets available for adoption or fostering.
Humane Society of Pasco County
Patty Evans, Shelter Director of this non-euthanizing location, said “We need a new building, but raise our own funds independently. Currently, we are in a 35-year-old trailer that is falling down around us. Our dream is to have a new, 1,500-square-foot building to take care of our animals.” Interested parties can go to GoFundMe.com to donate.
Pasco County Animal Services
Pasco County Animal Services offers an extensive website with discounts for adopting military veterans and seniors. For animals who have lived at “Petango” extended stay for long periods, a 50% adoption discount is available.
