Review for SPCA Tampa Bay, Largo, FL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

From what was once a very viable solution for animals released into this facility, this has now become a place where animals have very little chance of getting through the poor new system, to even be alive to find good forever homes. The hiring of people who have very little idea of good practices has greatly negatively impacted this facility. The fantastic enthusiasm of the many previous volunteers to the disbandment of the highly regarded Family Dog Trainer program, run by an extremely competent and well loved behavioralist has been systematically torn down. Almost all of long term volunteers have left this organization to use their many considerable talents at other animal refuges. I would not suggest you put your charity dollars here. There are too many chiefs and way too few Indians.

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

Suggest an independent audit. A closer look at the euthanasia rates of older viable animals. A closer examination of those in position of authority on each level
