When disaster strikes, pets suffer.
Before Hurricane Ida made landfall Sunday morning as a category four storm, Humane Society Naples already had relief efforts in action. Five dogs safely arrived at our Oaks Intake Facility from a Louisiana shelter. These dogs will find their homes here in Naples so our partners in Louisiana can focus on animals injured or displaced during the storm. We’re finalizing plans to do much more to assist in the aftermath of this disaster, but in order to make a bigger impact, we need your help.
How can you help?
FOSTER – HSN needs fosters to ensure there is plenty of room for new arrivals from partner shelters in the storm’s path. We are asking members of our community to consider opening their homes and hearts to not only our shelter residents but those displaced from the storm who will need assistance in recovering from such a jarring experience. Sign up to become a foster today and help us save more lives!
ADOPT – Consider bringing home a new family member from HSN. Starting tomorrow through Sunday, September 12, HSN is waiving all adoption fees in hopes of finding forever homes for our shelter animals. This allows us to have the space and resources to bring in more animals affected by Hurricane Ida. Both the Main Shelter and von Arx Adoption Center are open Tuesday-Sunday from 11am-4pm. See all of our adoptable animals!
DONATE – Every new arrival at HSN will receive a full medical evaluation, including vaccines and surgery if necessary, before they make their way to the adoption floor. Your donations not only provide medical assistance but other resources like food, litter and more. Please make a donation today in support of our shelter animals!
Below are a few of the foster candidates at HSN. An ideal foster home is dependent on many factors and varies from shelter animal to shelter animal. HSN appreciates every person who is willing to open their homes and hearts to one of our animals. By filling out a foster application, you are added to our network of fosters and will receive updates on when we have animals in need of fostering.
