HOURS OF OPERATION UPDATE

The Humane Society of Sarasota County will close at 3pm on Friday, August 12, for a staff/volunteer appreciation celebration.

As the area’s premier no-kill shelter, the Humane Society of Sarasota County engages the hearts, hands, and minds of the community to help animals. We rely solely on contributions from individuals, organizations, and corporations. HSSC receives no federal funding, nor are we funded by any national humane organization.
