IBERIABANK (www.iberiabank.com), a 125-year-old subsidiary of IBERIABANK Corporation, concluded a county-wide pet supply collection at the end of June with carts full of cat litter, canned food, dog toys, leashes, cleaning supplies and much more. The Naples Humane Society was the recipient of the company’s “i Gives Back” community outreach program. Associates and clients generously donated much needed pet supplies, and each branch featured a specific dog or cat that was available for adoption through the Naples Humane Society. Of the seven pets featured in Collier County, three were adopted during the month of June including Triple Tail, Zazu, and Ripley. The Marco Island branch and North Naples branch on Immokalee Road saw the greatest number of donations and even included a brag board for clients to post photos of their own precious pets.

“Our shelter and the orphaned pets awaiting adoption depend 100% on the generosity of our community members, and this organized effort by IBERIABANK and its clients and employees will allow us to continue to serve pets in need.  We are very thankful that the Iberia Team selected our no-kill shelter as a charitable beneficiary,” said Andy Reed, Director of Development for The Humane Society Naples.

IBERIABANK is wrapping up this month’s “i Gives Back” initiative on August 3. Each branch in Collier County is collecting pens, pencils, notebooks, scissors and other school supplies for Grace Place for Children and Families in Golden Gate City. 

IBERIABANK Corporation is a financial holding company with 278 combined offices, including 179 bank branch offices in Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Alabama, Texas, and Florida, 22 title insurance offices in Arkansas and Louisiana, mortgage representatives in 59 locations in 12 states, nine locations with representatives of IBERIA Wealth Advisors in four states, and one IBERIA Capital Partners, LLC office in New Orleans.

Organized in 1960, The Humane Society Naples works to shelter animals in times of need, locate life-long homes and promote responsible pet ownership through education, legislation and sterilization. The no-kill shelter rescued and adopted a record-breaking total of 2,195 pets into loving homes in 2011. The shelter is completely supported by charitable donations from our local community and is not associated with nor does it share resources with any national animal welfare agency.
