Humane Society of Tampa Bay

We’re honored to partner with the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, an organization that fosters a dedicated pet-first community of 400 volunteers willing to care for animals.


Since 1912, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay (HSTB) has put animals’ needs first. Now, in the state-of-the-art facility, around 300 dogs, cats and even guinea pigs temporarily and comfortably stay. As a non-profit organization, the impact that the volunteers have is immeasurable. “We simply would not be able to do it without our volunteers,” Sherry Silk, CEO of HSTB, said.

“We are thrilled to offer affordable pet insurance to our adopters.”

HSTB believes in “compassion, commitment and community,” when it comes to animal welfare. In addition to several programs and initiatives that benefit pets, the shelter also took their pet-care commitment one step further by partnering with Fetch Pet Insurance. “Fetch gives back to the shelter, which is great. We're a nonprofit and have to raise every dime that we get,” Sherry Silk, CEO of HSTB, said.

Chloe's Story

Chloe, a hound mix, was adopted by her parents, Al and Laurie, from HSTB. Al and Laurie signed her up for Fetch pet insurance on-site to solidify their commitment to giving Chloe a long and happy life. Now, thanks to her forever family, Chloe will always have the best care.
