Interested in the world of shelter animals?
This magazine is GREAT!
The Shelter is open from 10-7 through Saturday but CLOSED on Easter Sunday.
The area in which all ‘hope’ resides..the possible end of abuse and the beginning of a new generation who may right all of the wrongs…I see coloring books and things like this in FOHCAS’s future.
Rufus was surrendered to HCAS because his previous owners, who kept him outside, could no longer afford him. :( Rufus has such a sweet face, he quickly became a volunteer favorite. Everyone was thrilled when Rufus received an adoption application, but then the adopters never showed up to get him and he went unnoticed in [...]
Liza was adopted by a great couple who came to HCAS Friday, Saturday and Sunday looking for a dog. They never saw Liza until a volunteer showed her to them 20 minutes before the shelter closed on Sunday. They had walked past her kennel several times, but shy Liza was curled up on her bed, [...]
We don’t know how Berlin (formerly Lucky) did not get noticed in the shelter, but her foster mom Cheryl Lucente was happy to bring this beautiful girl home to give her the extra time she needed to find her forever family! Turns out, it didn’t take long. Mason and his mom Talore drove 3 [...]
Karu’s new dad saw her online and drove an hour and a half yesterday to come and see her. When he got to the shelter, he realized he didn’t have his wallet, so he drove back home (making sure not to exceed the speed limit!) and then came all the way back to HCAS today [...]
Jack was owner surrendered because his former owners could no longer keep him where they were living. Jack is a large sweetheart, who is friendly with other dogs, cats and kids. He has been at the shelter since December 28th. Today, volunteers brought him out front where he greeted everyone and was the perfect gentlemen. When [...]

Hillsborough County Animal Services volunteer Troy Wright celebrates with “Gomer,” the 500th dog he’s washed at the shelter. Thanks Troy! Volunteers, towels, and adopters are always needed: 440 N. Falkenburg Rd. Tampa.
We get some pretty hefty pups in at HCAS from time to time..but for some reason Mel (now Logan) sticks in my mind as the largest, solid dog I have seen. We have had a couple of Neapolitan Mastiffs, but most of them are ‘wrinkled up ‘skin’ it seems…not much ‘dog’ underneath. This is [...]
LENNY FOUND A FUREVER HOME! “Lenny” Just another medium red mixed breed dog. What people don’t know is how special he is. He has doubled his body weight gaining over 20 pounds with HCAS. Most don’t know he sits and gives you his paw. They dont know how the HCAS volunteers have enriched his life [...]
GOTCHA! This somewhat blurry action shot captures the photographer caught in the act! Volunteer Loretta Hodgdon was luring Lucky “The fire dog” with whipped cream during a recent photo session. He preferred the chicken and cheese bits, though. Happy to report that, as of today, Lucky is leaving the shelter to start a new [...]
The big headed pup seen above was an HCAS resident a few days ago. He was only one of our stray’s whom no one came forward to claim. “Big Dog Rescue” pulled him and lovingly named him “Meathead”. He is one of the sweetest pups you could ever want to meet. Connie Johnson of “BDR” took ”Meathead” to [...]
This particular blurb has always fit my pup Ollie, to a “T”.. hence, two “chuckie balls” in his possession. 1. If I like it, it’s mine.

This is “Kilo” owned by Mike Ofray,..a friend of many in our Pit Crew. Kilo is tesing out a costume for Halloween. Here kitty kitty…….
I found this posted on Craigslist. Thought it was cute..but more so..REAL! Don’t know who wrote it, but someone who apparently tired of seeing ads of people ‘re-homing’ their pets due to moving or adding another family member. After an exhaustive effort, I now have
Ever had one of those days when you tried to catch a nap, but couldn’t?
