Whether we’re taking our Mobile Adoption Center, “Big MAC,” for a spin around St. Armands Circle, manning our table at the Phillippi Farmhouse Market, or teeing off at our annual golf tournament, the Humane Society of Sarasota County is frequently out and about in the community—often with adoptable pets in tow.

HSSC Around Town

Look for HSSC’s Mobile Adoption Center, “Big MAC”, and the Animal Care-A-Van around town. 

Big MAC is used for large transports and for taking animals to offsite adoption events. This fully equipped RV has custom-built kennels that keep shelter animals cool and comfortable when they’re out on the town. 

The Animal Care-A-Van is the newest addition to the HSSC fleet. Our old transport van was vandalized in 2015. Through the Community Foundation of Sarasota County’s Giving Challenge and a generous grant from the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation, HSSC was able to purchase and customize a brand-new Chevy Express 2500 Cargo Van. The Care-A-Van regularly transports animals from local open-admission shelters. Read the full story here.
