How We Do It
Suncoast Humane Society accepts animals through managed intake and does not turn an animal away based on health, temperament, age, size, or breed while maintaining a 99% live release rate for cats and 96% live release rate for dogs. We do this by providing innovative programs through Sheltering, Prevention and Community Outreach aim...ed to care for pets and the people who love them.
Sheltering: Through our bricks-and-mortar shelter, foster families, and Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender (PASS). The shelter is the LAST option, and is not the best one. Our work demands ongoing judgement, and we may be able to offer solutions that do not require shelter surrender.
Prevention: Through our low-cost spay/neuter, vaccinations and other preventive care to prevent pet overpopulation and illness.
Community Outreach: By implementing programs and services that respond to community needs including: pet therapy, pet food bank, behavior training, and creative initiatives to positively influence the human-animal bond.
