Invite HSP to Your Event!

The Humane Society of Pinellas is committed first and foremost to the health and well-being of the animals in our care. We are fortunate enough to have a dedicated adoption center that is open to the public 6 days a week, providing our animals a comfortable and relaxed environment to find their new family. 
As an adoption shelter and resource in our community, we rarely bring pets to adoption events off site.
If you have a proposal for an event that is more than 4-6 weeks in the future, please complete the form below for consideration.  Fall and Spring events may require more notice due to a higher influx of events.

We will review all event requests as a team and respond to your request within 5 business days. Due to the high amount of requests that we receive on a daily basis, we unfortunately can not participate in every event.
