We have adopted 2 cats from Suncoast Humane Society. One adult cat had a rough start in life, he had an eye infection in both eyes when he was brought to the shelter. With the proper medical care and lots of TLC he was ready for us to adopt him. The other kitty was a kitten when we adopted him. He was raised in a foster home, instead of the shelter to receive constant loving in a non stressful environment. We just love them both!!

I've adopted 2 of my animals from from englewood humane society,my cat "Cash" in 2003 and I had a great experience the people really cared about the animals and myself. Cash passed away in 2012 I was heart broken. In 2013 I went back to adopt a puppy and the people were so compassionate when I told them about my cat, I could't find a better place to be. Casey my puppy is now 1yr and my best friend.I bring her in for her shots and Everytime I do they welcome us like we're family .I really can't say enough about them.
My experience with All the people I've met and the cleanliness of the facility was outstanding.

I have been following the adoptions that go out from Suncoast and see that they do wonderful work. I presently have 2 dogs (one adopted) and when the occasion arises I won't hesitate to go to Suncoast to adopt another dog.

My husband and I donate food and toys often to the Suncoast Humane Society. Pets all are clean and well attended. The staff seem to all love and really care for the animals. I would adopt a dog there.

We just adopted a 4 1/2 year old male cat on Jan 4, 2014. I went in thinking we would bring home a younger kitty, but I fell in love with Mr. Kitty as he was called. All of the staff were helpful and seemed to really care for the animals. It's only been 2 wks, but he is adjusting well. We have 2 other cats in the house which are female, and all is going as plan. His new name is Mister... we dropped the kitty part.

My family adopted all of our wonderful pets from this great local shelter, 3 dogs and a cat since 2001. We are big fans of Suncoast and will continue to support them through physical and monetary donations to ensure others can have the same experiences should they choose to adopt a pet.

And though I myself have moved away from the area, I still love to say hello to the cats when I'm in town as they are always well-accommodated and up for some play time :)

I can't say enough about Suncoast Humane Society. They have been here in our community for many years, through thick and thin, and have supported us through all kinds of difficult times. I have adopted dogs and cats, volunteered, and supported the local outings. The animals I have adopted were well cared for and I know in the future I will adopt again from them.

Suncoast Humane Society, Englewood, Florida is one of the last truely open door facilities. They do not restrict the animals that they take in. They do not only take the animals that can be adopted right away. They take "ALL" of the animals brought to them, unlike others in the area. They are one of the last hopes for the elderly or for those who have lost their jobs who want to keep their pets. They provide food for the local residents through their food pantry program which works with Meals on Wheels. They also sponsor low cost spay.neuter programs in the local community to help keep the pet population down. They are truely a great organization. Thanks for letting me repond.
