Join Us For Clear The Shelters Starting August 1st!
Beginning on August 1st, individuals and communities around the country are coming together to find loving homes for pets in need with NBC Universal and Telemundo owned stations’ Clear the Shelters campaign.

We will be one of those participating organizations and we need your help. Will you join us? By joining the #ClearTheShelters movement, you’re proving that compassion, especially during these uncertain times, can make a world of difference in the lives of homeless pets.

Here is how you can help:

  1. Adopt. Your new best friend is waiting for you right now! Adopting a shelter pet will change their life AND yours. Our adoptions are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please call us at 941-474-7884 to schedule an appointment. Adoption fee specials for August 2020: $75 for kittens and puppies (less than 1 year old), $50 for adult cats and dogs (over 1 year old), $25 for any animal who’s been with us longer than 6 months. Adoption fee does not include rabies vaccination fee and county licence tag fee. Learn more about our adoption process here.
  2. Give. Go to and donate. From August 1-August 31, $400,000 in matching funds will be made available, starting with $100,000 from August 1-8. You can also support our organization by shopping for items on our Wish List or by volunteering your time.
  3. Follow. Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and invite your friends to do the same.
  4. Spread the word. Encourage your friends and family to join you in creating real impact on August 1st, by sharing what our mission means to you and why you support our organization through your social media. Make sure to use hashtag #ClearTheShelters.

Let’s come together to build stronger communities and save lives!

Fosters Needed Now!
Fostering a shelter pet can be a rewarding experience: you get to do something incredible for your local shelter and for an animal who needs you. The joy you will experience by opening your home and heart and inviting a new dog or cat in is immeasurable!

There are many animals at Suncoast Humane Society right now who need loving volunteers to foster them for a variety of reasons such as: shy animals who need socialization, nursing cat moms & kittens, animals recovering from a medical procedure or going through treatment, and every animal who’d much rather wait for their forever family in a loving home than at the shelter.

If you have the desire to foster, and room in your home and heart, we will provide you with education, direction, food, and medical and behavioral assistance. So, let’s get started!
