Did you know that, on a monthy basis, about 50% of the animals taken to this ""shelter"" are killed, including healthy animals? They are refusing to make changes to their rules, which would allow more animals to survive. Did you know that they used to slaughter thousands of animals every year without acknowledging this? This came out in August 2009 when it was published by the St Petersburg Times. Did you know that the presiden of the board of directors, J.D. Lutz, a so-called veterinarian, was a volunteer since the 1980's and never once inform the public of what was going on within this place? Should you ever be in a position that you no longer can care about your animals, DO NOT take them to this SPCA. There are other shelters in Pinellas county where your animals will have a greater change to survive and be adopted.
