Caring for a big influx of animals in need isn't easy, but the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Tampa Bay has been getting plenty of practice at it lately. Four weeks ago, the local SPCA was enlisted to help the Humane Society of the United States raid a puppy mill in Lyles, Tenn. The raid, which the SPCA said was the largest of its type ever in Tennessee, brought 101 animals to the society's shelter in Largo. Many needed urgent treatment and attention. Now, while some of the rescued dogs, puppies, cats and kittens are ready for new homes, others continue to need care from the SPCA, its staff and volunteers. If you're interested in adopting any of the organization's animals, visit www.spcatampabay.org or call (727) 586-3591. The SPCA Tampa Bay is at 9099 130th Ave. N. Its hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
