Adoptions make everyone smile at Animal Services. For a small fee, you can choose a dog or cat to be a part of your family. Adoptable animals will be vaccinated and sterilized prior to moving to their new homes.
During the Dog Days of September special, adoption fees will be as follows:
Pinellas County Animal Services is honoring good school grades with back-to-school pet adoption specials. During the month of September, students can bring in a graded assignment or report card with a grade of B or higher to be rewarded with a reduced adoption fee of $5 for any adoptable dog and cat.
* All cat and kitten adoptions fee will be waived.
In the News:
Vets Adopt Program:
We work along with Vets Adopt Pets.org to thank & celebrate Veterans for their service to all Americans. As a show of our appreciation to all Veterans, we provide a fee waiver for the adoption of a pet from our shelter. Veterans can come to us directly and need to show proof of military status and meet our adoption requirements.
Pet Store Partners:
Since creating partnerships for cat adoption programs with over a dozen local pet stores, we now adopt out more cats than dogs. A portion of the donations from the pet stores participating in the Cat Adoption Program are utilized to fund the personnel and expenses to operate and expand the program and get more cats adopted. All donations received from the cat adoptions are placed in the Animal Welfare Trust Fund.
