In accordance with CDC guidance updated on July 27, 2021, Friends of Strays requires all staff and visitors to wear a face mask inside the shelter regardless of vaccination status. Thank you for your cooperation.

For dogs only: If you are looking to adopt a dog and already have a dog at home, please bring them with you to the shelter.

Adopting a dog or cat from Friends of Strays is a wonderful experience! All pets must be adopted in person, so please come by our shelter at 2911 47th Ave N, St Petersburg. We are open 5 days a week (closed Mondays and Tuesdays) to assist you in finding your new best friend. At Friends of Strays we encourage you to look at all of our companion animals available for adoption. Adopters are invited to our shelter to work with one of our Adoption Counselors to find the best match. While you may have your mind set on one of the animals in our database, we encourage all adopters to keep an open mind when they visit the shelter. Many people find that an animal picks them!

All our adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and microchipped. Our adoption fees vary depending on species and age. As a non-profit organization, all adoption fees go right back to the animals! Feel free to contact our Adoption Center at (727) 522-6566 ext 102 with any questions.
