Share our Shelter Tours

Join us for a one-hour lunch and learn program. Hear from people who have adopted their best friends from us, learn about animal behavior, go on a “behind the scenes” tour and share our shelter through the eyes of the animals. Lunch is provided, but donations are welcome.

Luncheon tours are held on the first Wednesday of every month at 12 p.m, unless otherwise noted. For groups of 10 or more, we will be happy to customize a tour for you. Feel free to bring a friend(s). Reservations required.

Tour FAQs

When do we pay?
Payment must be received before or at the time of the tour. In addition to the fee, we welcome groups to collect in-kind donations. Please refer to our Animal’s Wish List for appropriate donation items.

Where are tours located?
Tours are located at 9099 130th Ave. North in Largo.

If the front gate is closed, please use our back employee entrance. It is located off of Starkey Road at 126th Ave. North (the stoplight). Go West on 126th to the end of the road. Our back entrance is the last driveway on the right. Drive in and bear to the right.

What if it rains? Please call the Education Department on the morning of your tour to see if it needs to be rescheduled due to inclement weather.
