Humane Society Naples Receiving Transport from Bahamas Today

In the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, 83 dogs and 75 cats are being flown from the Bahamas Humane Society to Florida shelters to make room for displaced animals.

By joining efforts with the Bahamas Humane Society, Florida Association of Animal Welfare Organizations (FAAWO), International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), GreaterGood and Wings of Rescue, we are able to increase the capacity of threatened areas in the Bahamas as they continue to feel the pressure of an influx of displaced pets.

Today, we are taking in dogs and cats from Nassau. In order to ensure the health and safety of these animals and our shelter animals, the dogs and cats brought to HSN will need to remain quarantined in our care for at least two weeks before becoming available for adoption.

The transport and care for these animals is an expensive undertaking and we need your help. We need $25,000 to care for and adopt out these animals. With your continued support, HSN will be able to help save these animals from the Bahamas and many more abandoned and injured animals here in Southwest Florida.
