Cape Coral Animal Shelter
Hoping to save abandoned or lost pets
Directors of the Cape Coral Animal Shelter expect to break ground on the new facility by year’s end. The city’s no-kill shelter is projected to save more than 40,000 lost or abandoned animals over a 20-year span. The shelter, expected to open next spring, will be situated just north of Sun Splash Family Waterpark and will offer more than just a chance to adopt a furry friend. “Once opened, we will offer a low-cost clinic to provide vaccination and spay/ neuter procedures … and there will also be training and adoption programs, as well as volunteer programs,” says Pamela Aubuchon, the shelter’s director. Those interested in helping are directed to the Cape shelter’s website, where you can sign up for a digital newsletter, volunteer time, donate money and read about the latest news and upcoming events, including a golf fundraiser planned for Nov. 18.
Shelter volunteers will raise funds at golf outings, special events and by selling gear (above) at the Cape Coral Farmers Market.
