Review for SPCA Tampa Bay, Largo, FL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

The current administration has changed their mission from rescue, rehab and rehome to reducing the homeless animal population. Which means that they are now killing undesirable animals and keeping only desirable animals and puppies to shelter on a short term basis and adopt out. They ship puppies in from out of state while aborting females here during their last term, often creating another loss of life. They have no regard for the welfare of animals in need, but rather are trying to operate as a for profits while getting the benefits of being a NFP

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Fire the entire administrative staff, and reinstate the volunteer programs that were eliminated under the current regime.

Review for SPCA Tampa Bay, Largo, FL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

The SPCA has fallen into the hands of people who no longer care for the sheltering and rehoming of animals, but rather the bottom line and efforts to pay the salaries of too many administrators. I have personally attempted to reach out to board members who refuse to speak to the public as well as the executive director. I have personal knowledge of many animals that lost their lives under the lack of expertise of the veterinarian and the behavior manager. And the filth and neglect the animals have to live in because they spend the money going to conferences instead of caring for the animals.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Reestablish a board of directors who embrace a mission of humane treatment and saving animal loves and get rid of the current executive directors and downsize administration an put move front line staff back to work
