Fluffy Chatter Box

I rescued Chatter in late May 2017. He came at night to eat ravenously. He was totally friendly, not neutered, and he meowed up a storm (obviously, the reason for his name). He wanted a home of his own SO badly. Between the night I got him in my large dog crate in my garage and the next morning, he escaped from the crate twice.

Ban Debarking!

Sign now and be a voice for the voiceless and demand a ban on the inhumane debarking procedure! Severing a dog's vocal chords, known as debarking, is a cruel and dangerous procedure. It is performed to lower the volume or eliminate the dog from barking. Nuisance barking can be controlled with proper training and an exercise regime.

My Cat Is A Prolific Typist

I am a retired film editor, and being retired means I have to fill my time. I do so with a lot of hobbies. Among my many hobbies, I am a writer. But I have cat, a beautiful Tortie named Scout who has little patience for my sitting at the computer.

She wants all of my attention...»

Mama Macy Needs Life-Saving Surgery

Macy came into Humane Society of Tampa Bay's care when she was transferred from a low resource/high risk agency in Louisiana. The group shared that Macy may have a broken leg. Once Macy was in Tampa Bay's care, however, they realized her health was in worse shape. Poor Macy has a bullet in her right hip, and a shattered left hip from an old injury. Even more troubling, this sweet pup was pregnant, and because of all her health issues, required a C‐section. Sadly, she also has otitis externa (inflammation) in both ears. Macy will need a rear leg amputation due to her shattered pelvis.

You can help. Just $25 goes far toward Macy’s surgery and recovery costs.
