About Our Host: Humane Society of Sarasota County
As the area’s premier no-kill shelter, the Humane Society of Sarasota County (HSSC) engages the hearts, hands, and minds of the community to help animals.
Incorporated in 1952 as Sarasota’s first nonprofit animal welfare organization, today HSSC has grown to be so much more than a shelter. A shelter provides basic care---food, water, a clean kennel. HSSC's commitment goes well beyond the essentials, "Beyond Shelter." HSSC provides the very best in nutrition, veterinary care, enrichment, behavior support, and training.
HSSC's mission will always be focused on saving the lives of cats and dogs and enriching human lives along the way. The organization provides compassionate care to shelter pets, find them permanent homes, and promote responsible pet ownership in the community. HSSC also offers humane education, pet therapy, volunteer opportunities, an affordable public Animal Clinic, a pet food pantry, and more.
HSSC is a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, relying solely on contributions from individuals, organizations, and corporations. HSSC receives no federal funding, nor is it funded by any national humane organization.
