Mall store converted to adoption center for shelter
Coastland Center has tens of thousands of people visit each month and the Humane Society Naples is overrun with animals who need homes. An agreement has been made and the Humane Society Naples is pleased to announce the establishment of a satellite adoption center within the mall.

This satellite adoption center enables the public to view and adopt more pets, which in turn will save the lives of many more orphaned animals.”
In the last few years, financial hardship has led to the surrender of hundreds of animals. Bursting at the seams, the shelter has steadily increase the adoption rate but sadly there is only so much room. Often pet owners who wish to surrender their pets must go on a waiting list. Sometimes it takes months to find a spot for these pets.
