  • 1. Pet First

    by: TheInnocent

    I went down with my neighbor with her 4 elderly cats, this shelter took them in and said they would stay as long as they lived. The lady was nice, and gave my neighbor time to say good-bye, the shelter was clean and the office was maned by volunteers. Because these were out of county cats my neighbor had to pay $30.00 for each cat to be taken. She said that it was well worth it, that she knew they would be taken care of.

    Pros

    they will take in out of county cats

    Cons

    they charge for out of county cats

  • 2. wonderful

    by: carryallsmom

    The animals get the care they need. They are very helpful in caring for other animals in the county. They go the extra distance. The kennels probably could be updated. But, I have never seen a shelter with such happy cats.

    Pros

    animals get the care they need

    Cons

    kennels need to be updated

  • 3. Very Nice

  • 5. Clean and Caring

    by: JoanneSchoch

    We adopted our Gracie from them several years ago and were very impressed with the time and care they took to see that we would give her a good home and that she would be a good companion with our elderly blind dog. She was and we were blessed to have her as our very own.

    Pros

    Great caring staff and volunteers

    Cons

    None, I'm aware of.

  • 6. Great Shelter!

  • 7. The most caring

    by: SharonLS

    They go WAY beyond the call for the animals. One example is a couple of years ago, boaters fell off the platform of their boat with the engine running and the dog in the boat! The people were finally rescued but the Coast Guard etc would not help search for the boat since a human wasn't in it. Humane Society of Pinellas had planes and boats looking for the boat. It was found I think like 2 days later with the dog still in it and ok. \r\nThis is just one story, there are many many like this of what they do for the animals.

    Pros

    They don't send anyone to Heaven

    Cons

    None

  • 8. The BEST animal shelter in Pinellas County, FL

    by: JeanneMB

    I have recently met some of the staff at this shelter and after having volunteered at many other shelters for the last 15 years, they are one of my favorites. They give needy pets the time they need to find their forever homes- not a deadline- like others. They provide much more for each individual animal than many other shelters do. They go above and beyond other shelters I've become familiar with. \nThey need a makeover more than any other shelter I've ever seen. With that, they can do much more than they do now. My vote is with The Humane Society of North Pinellas now!

    Pros

    Compassionte people, the animals come first!

    Cons

    They need a shelter makeover!!

  • 9. A Wonderful Shelter !

    by: Jeansattic

    They are a no-kill shelter, and do try to evaluate the animals for matching to a prospective owner.\r\nI plan to leave them in my Will !

    Pros

    Very friendly & helpful

    Cons

    could use more help

  • 10. Humane Society of Pinellas - Wonderful!

    by: wrley

    I adopted two of my pets from the Humane Society of Pinellas over eleven years ago. My experience there has always been positive and pleasant.

    Pros

    Compassion, ethics and great customer service!

    Cons

    None

  • 11. Great shelter

    by: annejsize

    Great shelter - the people who work/volunteer there are very passionate about their animals, and the minute you step in, it shows. Very clean building, tons of toys for the animals, and in general, a loving environment.

    Pros

    Wonderful staff

    Cons

    Not more shelters like this one.

  • 12. amazing

    by: peaceee0215

    All the animals are absolutely adorable. The staff is nice as can be. Everything was easy to find. If I get another animal it will definitely be from there.

    Pros

    adorable animals.

    Cons

    not one.

  • 13. Best Shelter Ever

    by: tobybear55

    This is a great Shelter. The people and volunteers are all there for the animals. They keep the place so clean any look out for the best interest of the animals. Their adoption process is great and they try to find the best fit for adoptees and adopters. I tell my friends this is a great place to find a pet. I have had friends adopt from here.\r\nDiane

  • 15. 5 Stars well deserved!

    by: Shake

    Pros

    So many helpful people and so many lovable animals

  • 17. HSP is honestly the best

    by: Dragana

    I know since I volunteer there my opinion "has to be" good, but it doesn't. I really and truly believe everything I am writing! This place is amazing and has the nicest staff/volunteers. The people there are welcoming and always looking out for thei animal's well being. I have an animal and if I would trust my animal to be safe there then obviously it is a good place. I can stress enough how much they need a make over, but for what they have right now they are the most amazing shelter I have been to. I am honored to even volunteer there!

    Pros

    They take great care of animals and have friendly people

    Cons

    They need a little more room and equipment, but they aren't packed to the point that animals are in trouble

  • 18. It is my favorite

    by: Marcus1202

    I have been there a couple times and the people are careful and nice. The animals are even better!

    Pros

    Is good at what it does

    Cons

    Needs a makeover :D

  • 20. This shelter is one of the best...

    by: ztT4MP11190768

    I've both adopted from and turned animals in to this facility. I've always found the facility to be clean and the animals seem to be well cared for and provided for (to the best of their ability). I feel comfortable recommending this facility to others and, if I had the time, would love to volunteer here.

    Pros

    Clean kennels knowledgeable staff, compassionate volunteers

    Cons

    Long wait for surrenders.

  • 22. The Greatest Adoptive Shelter in Existence !

    by: hortoncoley

    Everyone in this great country of ours needs to have a shelter in their town to provide for the many pets that are in need of owners and homes to live. There are a large number of pets that need to be spayed or neutured to control the population; therefore, the funds that are needed in these shelters is never enough. We need to be able to bring funds into these places to provide for our pets - we need to be there for our pets just as they are always there for us.

    Pros

    The greatest, most knowledgeable staff & cleanest pets for adoption.

    Cons

    The shelter does not have enough room nor enough staff to take care of the large number of pets that are homeless in the Pinellas County area.

  • 23. great giving

    by: Ronnie215

    This facility is one of the best I have seen and greatly depends on its community sponsorship.

    Pros

    multiple animal services for the community, kind staff and volunteers, excellent animal facilies that stimulate them

    Cons

    not enough volunteers

  • 24. Great Place

    by: mande048

    Great shelter, really do a lot for the animals, get lots of extras when you adopt. Great staff, do full behavior tests on every incoming animal. Animals look in great condition.

    Pros

    Great place, really care

    Cons

    layout is a little confusing

  • 25. Great Shelter, Great Staff

    by: Amyja38

    HSP is a great shelter. On my visits there, the staff has been not only friendly, but knowledgeable and willing to help. Their facilities could use some help, as a lot of their animals must live outdoors, but they have kept the area clean and well-maintained. This shelter deserves a makeover!

    Pros

    Knowledgeable, friendly staff

    Cons

    Facility could use some help

  • 26. Old Kennels need Makeover

    by: Patchesmom

    I know that the residence of the shelter cannot speak for themselves, but if they could, it would sound something like this...\r\n" The time we spend here waiting for our forever homes is great. We get fed, walked and loved on every day. We are very happy here, but our housing could use some improving. It would be great if it could be a little cooler in the summer (Florida is HOT), and maybe a little warmer in the winter. We sent a paw-note to Ty Pennington, but as of yet, no bus has arrived at the shelter. So, please help us get an extreme makeover. We will fill your face with licks and our cat friends will purr all over you...."

    Pros

    Caring and compassionate staff and volunteers

    Cons

    Old facility needs "extreme makeover"

  • 27. HSP Deserves this makeover

  • 29. Great Place

    by: Eron

    This is an excellent ANimal Shelter. My wife and I drive from our home, which is closer to some other shelters, to the Human Society, because we like the people and the attitudes better. We don't dislike the other shelters, I just feel that the Human Society has a more Home-y feel to it (perhaps because it was built in an old home :-). Please check it out.

    Pros

    Many Animals Available, Friendly staff

    Cons

    Older Facilities
