The Pet Resource Center has hundreds of adorable animals to choose from at a modest price.

Many are ready to go home fully spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and with Hillsborough County pet license tag, on the same day as your visit. Stop by our next First Saturday Celebration on Sept. 6 for family-friendly fun and expert tips on pet care and training. 

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
