How to Help

Humane Society Naples is Collier County’s premier no-kill shelter, adoption center and full-service veterinary clinic. HSN does not receive funds from nor distribute resources to any national organization. We rely on private contributions and income generated from our operations to support our efforts. There are many ways you can help HSN provide comfort, care, and forever loving homes for our community’s orphaned pets. HSN depends on private donations to support its operations and community outreach efforts. Please consider making a gift online.

Other Ways to Donate

Forever honor your pet, family member, business or group with custom engraved brick pavers. The custom pavers will become a permanent part of our main shelter’s sidewalks and entry areas.

Please note: In order to make sure that your money goes to help as many animals as possible, we wait to fulfill paver orders until we have five or more. If you would like to expedite your paver order, there is an additional $50 fee.

One enjoyable way to get involved with HSN is to attend our special fundraising events. From our annual Pet Lovers Gala to our extremely popular Run For the Paws held each January, our wide variety of events offers an opportunity meet great people, wonderful pets and to find out more about the work of HSN. Many companies and individuals choose to publicly demonstrate their love of animals and support of our no-kill shelter by sponsoring our fundraising events.

For additional information and sponsorship opportunities, please contact Meredith McLean at or 239-438-4616. View all upcoming events here.

Shelter Naming Opportunities offer a way of honoring your family’s legacy at Humane Society Naples’ facilities. Please contact Jon Foerster at or 239-438-4624 for information about these very special giving possibilities.

Humane Society Naples is also proud to partner with your family and your professional advisors to ensure you have properly planned for your pets in the event of your death or incapacitation. Planning for pets in your estate can be very simple via a caretaker provision, but there may also be a need to explore more sophisticated planning vehicles such as a pet trust in your family’s particular situation.

As Collier County’s premier no-kill pet shelter, HSN can help ensure that if the need arises, your beloved pets will be cared for and placed in a loving home through our Remaining Best Friends Program. While no consideration of an estate gift is required for us to serve as an emergency or contingent caretaker of your pets, we would certainly appreciate your family’s philanthropy in support of HSN’s commitment to providing this unique and life-saving program to our community. It is important to seek professional advice when planning for your pets and your estate.

We are proud to work hand-in-hand with your attorney, financial advisor, accountant, trustees or executors to help ensure the well-being of your beloved pets. It is important that you communicate your intent with our shelter so that we may properly document any provisions and prepare for them accordingly.
