Humane Society of Manatee County:
Saving Lives, Fostering Community Compassion

At the Humane Society of Manatee County, we are committed to leading the community in fostering compassion and respect for animals through care, education and collaboration. While many organizations focus solely on adoption, our solutions are more far reaching and long lasting - targeting animals at greatest risk and producing lifesaving results. HSMC works to look beyond our own shelter and clinic with compassion and commitment to better the lives of all animals in our community. Here is how we do it.

Animal Shelter and Adoption: Since 1970, HSMC has been saving lives of cats and dogs at our shelter where our staff and volunteers care for, rehabilitate, and find loving homes for local homeless animals that come into our care.

Pet Health Center: Now open, HSMC’s brand new 10,000 sq. ft. Pet Health Center is open to the public and offers low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter surgery six days a week. The Pet Health Center also offers vaccinations, microchipping, flea and tick prevention, and other wellness veterinary services at affordable prices, which in turn supports our shelter and homeless animals.

Free and Low-cost Spay/neuter programs: HSMC strives to keep spay/neuter accessible to everyone, and regularly offers deeply discounted or free surgery for pets of eligible pet owners. Call for more information of what funding is currently available and if your pet qualifies. 747-8808 option 1

Trap/Neuter/Return: Our TNR program is the most effective and humane means for addressing community cats and preventing the birth of thousands of homeless kittens. Once trapped, our team will spay or neuter, vaccinate, ear tip, and return feral and free roaming cats to their place of origin to live out their lives. Call 747-8808 option 1 for more info.

Second Chance Program: The animals at greatest risk in our community are those that enter the government shelter. Through our Second Chance program we transfer at risk dogs and cats that are ill, injured, neglected or abused. We provide the medical and behavioral rehabilitation they desperately need before finding them new, loving homes.

Pet Safety Net: HSMC believes that keeping pets in loving homes is every bit as important as finding new home for orphaned pets. This program offers resources to help you and your pet have a long and happy life together. Services include the pet food bank, behavior assistance, medical referrals and pet friendly housing information.
