Heat KillsFireworks and Storms = Lost & Found Pets!

Tags and microchips save lives, and you can use our online Lost and Found Pets resource to reunite a family. If you've found a pet wearing a Hillsborough County rabies tag, just type in the tag number to find the owner. You can also look for a lost pet online, but searching the shelter in person is always best.

The July adoption special at the Pet Resource Center features "Hot Dogs & Cool Cats!" Adoption fees include spay/neutering, vaccinations, micro-chip, County license tag and more. Many pets are ready to go home same-day and offered for just $20.

Who We Are and What We Do

The Department of Animal Services is a public safety, and humane animal welfare partner for the community. The Animal Services shelter is the only "open-admission" facility in the county.  This means that it accepts animals regardless of breed, size, or medical condition. Most of the kennels contain cats and dogs, but may also have adoptable rabbits, guinea pigs, birds or other companion pets.

Animal Services enforces the County Ordinance and Florida state laws relating to various animal-related activities, including:

  • Removal of animal remains
  • Investigation of animal neglect and cruelty  
  • Education for dog-bite prevention
  • Receiving and tracking dog-bite reports
  • Quarantine of animals that have bitten someone
  • Issuance of rabies registration tags
  • Offering low-cost spay and neuter vouchers to qualifying pet owners
  • Providing a pet adoption program 
  • Sheltering stray, sick and/or injured animals
  • Responding to animal needs after hurricanes/disasters
