Established in 1949, The Humane Society of Pinellas (HSP) is Pinellas county's largest no-kill animal shelter that finds homes for more than 2,600 animals each year. Beyond adoptions, the Humane Society of Pinellas mission is to prevent animal homelessness and provide care and assistance to animals in need. Programs offered include a full service veterinary hospital, affordable spay/neuter services, TNVR (Trap-Vaccinate and Release) for stray and community cats, a behavior helpline and training classes, and a pet food pantry for pet owners facing a hardship. HSP's Senior Pet Connection program supports low-income and home bound seniors by making monthly deliveries of pet food and supplies at no cost. Like a "meals on wheels" for pets, our dedicated staff and volunteers also assist participants with routine vaccines and preventatives in addition to the pet food. HSP's Deanna Marie Palestra Humane Education & Outreach Program reaches more than 6,500 kids annually through 164 programs.
