The ASPCA® (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) and NMHP-HC (No More Homeless Pets in Hillsborough County) are hosting a Spring Pet Adoption Expo on Saturday, May 19th.
Over 20 animal rescue groups, as well as Hillsborough County Animal Services and the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, will be present with hundreds of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens looking for forever homes. The event also features pet merchandise, door prizes and demonstrations on topics such as disaster preparedness, pet behavior and "Ask a Veterinarian."
The Expo will be held Saturday, May 19th, at Florida State Fairgrounds Special Event Building, 4800 Highway 301, Tampa.
Hillsborough County currently has a "save rate" for homeless pets (those entering shelters) of only 10 percent, which it aims to increase to 50 percent by the year 2010
under a new initiative called ASPCA® Mission: Orange™. The ASPCA Mission: Orange initiative is a collaborative effort to create a "humane community" by curbing the needless euthanasia of adoptable pets through improved adoption programs, reduced intake of unwanted animals and expanded spay/neuter initiatives.
Free parking is available using the Fairgrounds entrance on Orient Road. Admission is free. Donations accepted.
