Help Raise $7,500 for Humane Society of Tampa Bay while creating custom artwork of your beloved pet and being featured in a Fundraising Coffee Table Book

Humane Society of Tampa Bay has had to cancel numerous fundraising events due to the pandemic. The goal of the Fundraising Coffee Table Book Tails of Gratitude - A Collection of Thank You Notes from People to Their Pets is to help the shelter recoup some of those funds, but to also give thanks to the pets in our lives.

Successful applicants will have a luxury photo shoot at our Pet Photo Studio in South Tampa designed just for them. Pet parents will get to choose their favorite photo to be featured in the book, along with the option to purchase printed photographic artwork for themselves.

Thank You Notes from People to Their Pets

What do you want to thank your pet(s) for?

- Do they help you with stress relief?
- Have they gotten you through a difficult time?
- Are they your running partner?
- Do they comfort you when you're sick?
- Do they force you out of the house now that you have to work from home?
- Do they make you laugh when you need it the most?

The Humane Society of Tampa Bay, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, provides shelter for homeless & at risk animals, adoptions, hospital and TNVR services for the general public; operates independently from the Humane Society of the United States. And we, along with our animals, would love to have you as a partner on this journey.

Dear Rigby,

Thank you for always being there when I need you the most. You always know when I'm not feeling well and ask for belly rubs when you know I need a distraction. Your love and affection always makes me smile and I am so glad I adopted you, but in actuality, you adopted me.

- Adam G.
