How Can We Lend a Paw?

Spay & Neuter Services

The Humane Society of Pinellas strongly promotes the spaying and neutering of all pets not only to control pet over-population, but also for the health of your pet. Unaltered animals can develop conditions such as testicular, ovarian or mammary cancer, and are more likely to have behavioral concerns such as mounting, urine marking, territorial aggression and excessive vocalization.

Spay and neuter surgeries are by appointment only and are performed at HSP’s Pet Hospital conveniently located at 2907 State Road 590, Suite 5. Spay/Neuter appointments require a $35.00 deposit at the time the appointment is scheduled. Please let us know if your pet has any medical or behavioral conditions so our staff can properly care for your pet.

Euthanasia and Cremation Services

At the Humane Society of Pinellas, we are not only here for your pets throughout their life, but also once they cross the Rainbow Bridge. We believe that your pet should be treated with dignity and respect, and that as their caretaker, you should be able to make an educated end of life option for your loved one. We offer several euthanasia and cremation options and the Humane Society of Pinellas staff are here to guide you and your pet through the process.


All owner-requested euthanasia requires a medical exam, which is included in the price, as well as proof of ownership. We also ask that you bring any medical records with you, or have your current veterinarian fax them to us at (727) 240-0255. Our veterinarian reserves the right to refuse service.

Being present at your pet’s euthanasia is your own choice – there is no right or wrong option, only the one that best fits you and your pet’s needs.


The Humane Society of Pinellas offers two cremation options: communal and private. The communal ashes are not returned, but are scattered respectfully in the Gulf of Mexico. A paw print of the pet is available for all communal cremations. With private cremation, your pet is individually cremated and the ashes are returned to you in your choice of urn. Cremation is performed by Anderson McQueen and fees are dependent on weight. Contact our veterinary staff to allow us to help you make the best decision for you and your pet.

Pet Loss Support

We understand the heartache and grief involved when it comes time to say goodbye to a beloved pet. Through our cremation partner Anderson McQueen, the Humane Society of Pinellas has access to Pet Loss Support Groups led by professional grief counselors. Please inquire at the time of your euthanasia service or visit
