SPCA Tampa Bay is Looking for Foster Parents and Donations
Kitten season is the time of year between April and October when cats give birth to numerous litters. Because cats have multiple heat cycles, they can produce more than one litter during this 6-month period. SPCA Tampa Bay invites the community to actively participate in this year's kitten season by becoming a foster parent, donating necessity items for kittens and puppies and/or having their pets spayed/neutered.
The following events and programs are available:
SPCA Tampa Bay provides foster parents with all the necessary training and items to help these youngsters grow up strong and healthy. Foster Orientation will be held on Saturday, April 24, 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m., at the Education Building. Interested individuals or families must sign up for this orientation by calling (727) 586-3591 x127 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
SPCA Tampa Bay is also requesting donations of dry and wet kitten and puppy food, kitty litter, new puppy and kitten toys, towels, paper towels, blankets, collars, leashes, and crates. Items can be dropped off during normal Shelter business hours.
SPCA Tampa Bay also offers low cost spay/neuter programs to individuals or families in Pinellas County on limited income through the Friends of Family Pets Spay/Neuter Program. Pit and Pit Mix canines are spayed/neutered at no charge courtesy of the Florida Animal Friends Spay/Neuter License Plate program. Interested owners can apply for either program with a current copy of their 1040 Form on Tuesdays from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. without their pet. Additional low cost spay/neuter programs in other Bay area counties can be found on the SPCA Tampa Bay's website, www.spcatampabay.org.
