LARGO - Giving up or being reunited with a pet can be an emotional experience. SPCA Tampa Bay is hoping its new office will make that moment a bit easier for pet owners.

On Jan. 11, SPCA Tampa Bay in Largo unveiled its newly renovated admissions office, which expands the office and provides private space for staff and pet owners to discuss emotional or sensitive situations that a pet owner may be facing. The additional privacy also helps reduce the stress levels of the animals so they can move through the intake process without interruptions from other clients. SPCA Tampa Bay also added an enclosed and air-conditioned waiting area to the admissions office.

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH - It took Diana Busboom one look at a cat online and another encounter at the SPCA to convince her that the cat, Daisy, had to come home with her, and it didn’t matter that Daisy was 10 years old.

The Busbooms, Diana and husband Tom, have lived in Indian Rocks Beach for the past six years. They have been cat lovers a lot longer than that. Back in August they lost the second of the two cats they owned for years. The other one died in March. So, in September, they decided it was time to get another one.

Even though Tampa Bay was rated one of the top 10 cat-friendly cities and cats are still the No. 1 human companion, cats are only being taken to their veterinarian half as much as dogs.

One reason for this may be due to the fact that many cats don’t like to be put in a carrier, put into the car and taken to unfamiliar places. For those cat owners who consider this a stressful experience, here are some tips to make this easier for you and your cat:

The overpopulation of community cats - also known as feral, free-roaming or stray cats - is being reduced thanks to the hard work and determination of the MEOW Now team.

When it comes to the exceptionally high number of local community cats, it takes a dedicated team of caring and hard-working individuals to take action and create a positive effect on Pinellas County community cat overpopulation, as well as their human co-inhabitants. MEOW Now, a nonprofit organization in its first year of operation, is reaching its goal of providing Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return to 1,000 community cats.

MEOW Now was formed by concerned citizens Dan Hester, Marilyn Weaver and Cathy Unruh, along with the Humane Society of Pinellas and SPCA Tampa Bay, to implement an effective program to humanely reduce the overpopulation of Pinellas County community cats.

LARGO - In honor of the superheroes theme, man’s best friends did their best Superman impressions Oct. 3 during the Soggy Doggy pool party, as canines from all over the county took leap after leap into the pools at Highland Aquatic Center in Largo.

Dogs of all breeds, ages and sizes took over the complex during the annual day, which was presented by Pet Supermarket with sponsors David Wright Photography and the Avian & Animal Hospital.

It was all about the pets, though, as humans weren’t allowed to swim.
