The president of Tampa Tile, Jerry DiFabrizio announce Pennies for Paws raised awareness to support the construction of the 42,000 square foot, a multi-story facility that will be the safe haven for thousands of animals in the Tampa Bay area.
“We are humbled by the generosity of our customers,” says Jerry DiFabrizio. “The Humane Society’s work in our community is critically important, we love animals and felt it was our duty to give back.”
The Humane Society of Tampa Bay is one of the oldest charities in the State of Florida and has been serving homeless animals for more than 100 years in a small facility. HTSB has been at its West Tampa location since 1929 and will remain there, but now in a bigger facility that will help them save the lives of over 8,000 rescue animals each year.
The Humane Society of Tampa Bay found homes for 545 animals, including Tampa Tile’s favorites: Reuben, Thumper, Ella, and Acey.
“We are truly grateful for all the support received from Tampa Tile this month. They knew we needed assistance and jumped right in to lend a helping hand. It’s outstanding to see a family-owned business show their commitment to its community,” said Karen E. Ryals, chief development officer at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay.
DiFabrizio also announced Tampa Tile will be donating tile for the new facility. “We want the shelter to have the capacity to give the best care possible for all of the animals at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. We strongly believe in the mission of the Humane Society and look forward to supporting their continuing good work in this way.”
The new Humane Society of Tampa Bay facilities will include puppy and kitten nurseries for underage litters, an isolation area for sick animals to reduce the spread of disease, an expanded surgical suite to address a greater variety of surgical needs, and heating and air conditioning in all shelter areas, among other capacities.
