Sooo you are interested in me huh? Well you should know I am a staff favorite so I hope you live up to their standards! I have been through a very "ruff" time and need a family who will treat me like the King I am for the rest of my life :-) I was found with a chain collar embedded around my neck and needed surgery. Despite everything I have been through, I love to snuggle! I am crate trained and I know how to sit and I listen very well but I tend to play rough with other furry friends so I would do best in a home with no small dogs or cats. I am a strong boy that needs leash training and a person that can handle my strength. You may notice my hair is a little different than some of the other dogs; this is because I have a condition called Demodex. This is a mite under the skin which causes minor hairloss. Don't worry; it is non-contagious and very easy to treat. I am undergoing my treatment but you will need to follow up with your veterinarian for another skin scrape and possible continued treatments. Come visit me today!!!!! then stop by and meet me today!

About Humane Society of Tampa Bay

About Our Shelter...

The Humane Society of Tampa Bay is dedicated to ending animal homelessness and providing care and comfort for companion animals in need.

HSTB is a Managed Admission shelter that works to help stop the needless euthanizing of adoptables animals in the Tampa Bay area. We now take owned adoptable dogs and cats by appointment only. We also transfer more than 3,000 dogs and cats from high-euthanasia facilities to our shelter each year. We do not euthanize a dog or cat to make room for another one.


Pet Adoption Program
We provide friendly, healthy companion animals to responsible and prepared pet owners. All pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before being made available for adoption.

Animal Health Center
Low-cost sterilization and affordable, high-quality veterinary care for owned pets is available to the public, seven days a week.

Trap/Neuter/Vaccinate/Retrun (TNVR) Program for Feral Cats
We provide reduced rates for spaying, neutering and vaccination of ferals and free roaming cats. Contact our TNVR Program at 813.625.0910 or for more information.

Information and Referral Service
Hundreds of calls to HSTB each month request information about pet care, training or community animal problems. (813) 876-7138.

Humane Euthanasia
The Humane Society of Tampa Bay provides euthanisia services for owned pets in the Tampa Bay community, whom are either too sick or elderly and deserve a humane release to prevent further suffering. Private cremation services are also available. Please call HSTB for additional information.

Food Assistance & Animeals
Our Food Assistance Program distributes free pet food to individuals and families experiencing financial hardship at our shelter, six days a week. Animeals provides homebound and senior pet owners with high-quality pet food delivered monthly.
