Today is National Rescue Dog Day. If you were thinking of adding a dog to the family, today is the perfect day. According to the ASPCA, 3.3 million dogs enter shelters every year. If you can handle a dog and want to add on to your family, we’ve made a list of the shelters around us in the Tampa Bay area. It breaks my heart to see animals get mistreated. If you are serious about making an addition to your family then consider adopting. It was help the animals and shelters.

Here is a list of shelters in the Tampa Bay area:

Hillsborough County:

Pinellas County:

Pasco County:

Polk County:

Manatee County:

Sarasota County: 

Highlands County:

Hernando County:

Citrus County:

A lot of these shelters have websites where you can see the animals that are up for adoption and you don’t even need to set foot in the shelter to take a glance at the pets there. Although, it might still be good to look in person just in case there is a new pup or cat that has not been added to the website.
