Human Society of Sarasota County

The Humane Society of Sarasota County (HSSC) is dedicated to the health and welfare of each animal in our care. Our mission is to provide abandoned pets with compassionate care and shelter while promoting responsible pet ownership and securing permanent homes. We are the area’s largest no-kill animal shelter.

Every attempt is made to keep pets with their owners via our successful Feline and K-9 programs that provide behavior counseling and training. If surrender remains the only option, our medical and behavioral teams evaluate every pet taken into the care of HSSC. The shelter accepts all pets deemed adoptable within the capacity constraints of our shelter. Stray animals are referred to Sarasota County Animal Services.
