The Humane Society of Sarasota County is taking a “Humanely Possible” approach to the COVID-19 crisis. Our priorities are to continue to care for and find permanent homes for our shelter animals, to help our rescue partners and our community, and to keep providing lifesaving medical care to our clients. We know that we cannot do everything, but we are doing everything “Humanely Possible.”
The shelter is open to the public for normal adoption hours. Effective June 1, appointments are required to view or adopt a cat or dog. Please call 941.955.4131 to make an appointment.
Our Animal Clinic is open, and clients are now allowed inside the building. Please call 941.364.3605 to speak directly to the Clinic.
Face masks are required inside and outside, per Sarasota City Ordinance, effective August 19, 2020, for 60 days. Some exceptions apply.
Please visit our COVID-19 Response webpage for complete details on how our programs and services have been adjusted.
EVENTS WITH HSSC
The Humane Society of Sarasota County will be hosting a weekly after-school web series called After School with HSSC. This after-school series is great for kids who love animals. We will have dogs, cats, exotic animals, and guest speakers. Kids will experience live animal entertainment and education for 30 minutes. The first four episodes will be free. Tune in every Wednesday!
Due to COVID-19, After School with HSSC is completely virtual using a platform called Zoom.
