Dog and cat rescues in tampa

Pinellas County Animal Rescue

Pinellas County Animal Services strongly values collaboration with our community partners, especially rescue groups, in an effort to save the lives of more dogs and cats.

Our rescue partners assist us daily by taking animals

that need extra care due to medical and/or behavioral issues. They work hard to place these special needs animals with the right forever home. The support and teamwork with our rescue partners is key to increasing our live release rate and decreasing shelter euthanasia.

Rescue Groups:

The following rescue groups are approved rescue partners with Pinellas County Animal Services.

If you are looking for a new pet, please contact our rescue partners, in addition to visiting our shelter. By adopting through our rescue partners, you are helping the animals of Pinellas County and enabling us to save more lives.

Pet Store Partners - Cat Adoptions:

Since creating partnerships for cat adoption programs with several local pet stores, we now adopt out more cats than dogs. All donations received from the cat adoptions are placed in the Animal Welfare Trust Fund.

  • Complete the rescue application

    not-for-profit status.
  • Submit a letter of recommendation from your veterinarian.

    Once you are approved, you will receive emails from PCAS with information on animals that need to be rescued. These emails will include pictures, biographical information, and transparent disclosure of all known health and behavioral issues.

    Our process is simple – animals go to approved rescues on a first come, first serve basis. These animals are fully vaccinated, tested for heartworms or FeLV, spayed or neutered, microchipped, dewormed, and treated for fleas.
