Join us Wednesday, September 14th at 4pm for another HSP Open House! Get a behind-the-scenes look at the path our animal friends take - from admission to adoption, and everything in between! You will see the love and dedication that goes into caring for each pet that finds its way to HSP in need of medical attention, training and a new home. We love sharing our mission with our followers and what a great opportunity to truly show what we're all about!
After your tour, have an opportunity to chat with our Directors, staff and volunteers about all the good HSP is doing. You also have the opportunity to browse our retail area and learn more about future events and sponsorship opportunities. Refreshments and snacks are served on each tour!

It's calendar time again! With 2017 here before we know it, secure a spot for your pet in the HSP 2017 Pet Calendar! Entering your pet's photo is easy - just register him or her here - and have your friends vote to see your pet featured! All proceeds help homeless pets, so who says it doesn't pay to be famous! All pet owners will receive one free calendar for every $100 raised. Voting ends September 1st and all calendars will be available for sale by October 31st.
Each year, HSP, with the support of Rebecca Brittain Photography, showcases Pinellas County pets in our annual calendar! While all contestants get a small spot in the calendar, community members can vote for their top 12 favorites which are then featured each month and on the calendar cover.
2016 Calendars are currently available for purchase in our Adoption Center or online. You can also contact our Director of Community Relations, Twila Cole, at Twila@HumanePinellas.org or (727) 797-7722 ext. 222.
Monthly sponsorships are still available! First come, first choice! Show your support of homeless pets in this community by advertising your business in this heavily marketed calendar. Sponsorship opportunities will be featured with a full color ad on the month of your choice, on the back cover of the calendar, as well as your logo and business link on our webpage and social media acknowledgements.
Thank you so much to our sponsors, including in loving memory of Bailey Burchill HSP '15 &'16 Calendar Boy *10/14/98 - 05/14/16*
