Established in 1949, The Humane Society of Pinellas (HSP) is Pinellas county's largest no-kill animal shelter that finds homes for more than 2,500 animals each year. Beyond adoptions, the Humane Society of Pinellas provides life-saving care and services to help keep pets and people together. Programs offered include a low-cost Pet Clinic, 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 low-income pet owners. HSP's Senior Pet Connection program supports low-income and homebound 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.
