One of the most unique programs in Naples is the Second Chance Cell Dog Program - a program via the Collier County Sheriff's Office that pairs homeless, shelter pups with groups of female prisoners to help train, care for, and bring up the pups to later have them adopted out to their fur-ever families. Though it's not a program with a huge turnaround, like a few of the organizations we'll discuss later, it is certainly an interesting, unique doggie-daycare program that helps homeless pups, and the female prisoners in custody, get a second chance toward loving and being loved!
The Naples Humane Society, with two locations within the city, has been around since the mid 1950's, providing homes, care, and veterinary services to homeless pups in need. They promote responsible dog ownership, sterilization for little to no cost, care for pooches and kittens that need it, and overall, a home for the homeless animals of the county. They rescued almost 3,500 animals in 2016 and are shooting for more than 8,000 for the year of 2017.
Join other four-legged (and two-legged) friends for a swanky, hippy, doggy event that takes place only once a year. All the proceeds will go toward the homeless pooches and kittens of the Humane Society of Naples. You can donate, adopt, or just enjoy the sniff-tastic company at this paw-sitively premiere event. Don't miss out!
Make sure your pooch is well-behaved, leashed, and ready for a great time!
