Striving to achieve our mission

Since the inception of our mission, “reducing the number of homeless animals and improving the quality of life,” the programs and services of Suncoast Humane Society have taken on a new nature. Gone are the days when we were an animal-control housing facility, faced with housing aggressive animals and even animals that had a history of biting people. Sheltering these animals resulted in a much higher euthanasia rate. We have also moved past being just a pet adoption facility, even though that remains one of our most important services for the community.

Our adoption program now provides consultations by experienced “Adoption Specialists” to ensure that the pet being adopted will fit into your home and lifestyle. Our adoption program has placed thousands of animals into new homes, while providing education and support to the adoptive family. We are excited to be introducing an off-site adoption program, in cooperation with Pet Supermarket in Englewood and Petco in Port Charlotte. We are hopeful of also having satellite adoption facilities in North Port and Venice in the near future. We partner with many other animal shelters and rescue groups as part of our “transport for adoption” program. One perk in our adoption program is that we offer senior adopters, as well as senior animals being adopted, generously discounted fees.
