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 as we are able, and to keep providing lifesaving medical care to our clients. We know that we cannot do everything, but we are doing everything “Humanely Possible.”
We are closed to the public until further notice. Please visit our COVID-19 Response webpage for complete details on how our programs and services have been adjusted.
We have animals available for adoption by appointment only. Please call 941.955.4131 to make an appointment.
Our Animal Clinic is still open for essential services only. Please call 941.364.3605 to speak directly to the Clinic.
EVENTS WITH HSSC
The 14th Annual Paws on the Catwalk “Artwalk” was held on Friday, February 28, 2020, at Art Ovation Hotel. Guests enjoyed the artsy, colorful twist on the Paws of previous years. The event featured adoptable animals, curated shopping, signature cocktails, interactive experiences, live art, and dynamic Hot Guy “artwalk,” as well as the lifesaving fundraising “Raise Your Paw” portion.
All told, the event raised over $217,000 for the Humane Society of Sarasota County, making it the most profitable Paws on the Catwalk ever. Thank you to everyone who sponsored, attended, donated, exhibited, and attended. Cheers to another fabulous event!
