Naples Florida Animal shelter
As a part of our goal here at The Humane Society Naples reducing the amount of time an animal spends in our shelter saves us space to rescue more orphaned pets. Being in a foster’s care provides a stress-free environment for the animal to grow, mature, recuperate and be socialized. This helps prevent these animals from getting sick, especially pregnant and nursing mothers that are raising newborns and babies too young to be on their own.
Can't adopt, but still want to help? Open your heart and home to pets in need! Please consider becoming a part of our foster team and in return you’ll receive unconditional love and a lifetime of memories.

- Do I have the space to separate the new pet until he/she acclimates to my home?
- Can I emotionally let go of the pet when he/she is ready for adoption?
- How does my family feel about fostering? Are they prepared for extra work?
