The time these dogs, cats and pocket pets spend with SPCA Tampa Bay is only temporary and the love they can bring to a family will last a lifetime. Currently, there's more than 50 adoptable animals (including rabbits, birds and more) that are furry, bouncy and even feathered.

SPCA Tampa Bay opens at noon on Saturday, August 29, and will have social distance measures in place to accommodate the community. No more than 10 people will be able to visit the adoptable animals inside the shelter. For more information on SPCA Tampa Bay's Clear the Shelter event, and all of their adoptable pets, visit and click on adoptions or call 727-586-3591.
