TAMPA BAY - The Tampa Bay Lightning are once again teaming up with the Humane Society of Tampa Bay to host a pet supply drive and adoption clinic on Ford Thunder Alley prior to their game against the Ottawa Senators on Saturday, March 2 at AMALIE Arena.

Player wives and girlfriends will be joined by Lightning employees and volunteers to collect donated items on Ford Thunder Alley. Fans are encouraged to donate pet food, toys and treats, grooming tools and cleaning supplies to help the cause. Lightning fans who bring one or more items will be entered to win a chance to attend a morning skate for a future game. All collected items will be used to improve the care of dogs and cats in need in the Tampa Bay area.

The Humane Society will host an area on Ford Thunder Alley where fans can see dogs and cats that are up for adoption. Interested fans can fill out paperwork to adopt their own dog or cat they see at the event. All the animals will return to the Humane Society that night while the paperwork is looked through to make sure the fan is a good candidate to adopt. If so, they can pick up the adopted dog or cat the next day.

The Humane Society of Tampa Bay is dedicated to ending animal homelessness and providing care and comfort for companion animals in need. In 2018 alone, there were 9,874 animals saved. The Humane Society aims to open their new shelter in 2020 and asks for your help to hit their $2 million fundraising goal.
