One thing we hear a lot is “I could never work at a humane society – I would bring home all of the animals!” It can indeed be hard not to adopt them all. But some animals find their way into your heart in a particularly poignant manner. Bear was the victim of unspeakable abuse. Saved by our partners at the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, he came to us for medical attention and even more, for finding a way to trust again. Healing those broken canine hearts is often more difficult than healing their physical wounds. But Bear embodies the meaning of forgiveness. He has bonded with all our staff and is our unofficial “office dog.” He knows who has the best treats, who gives the best belly rubs, and who has really cool chew toys. He will find a forever home one day, one that we will carefully approve. Until then, he inspires us every day with his joy in life and love for the people in his rescue world.

Dogs are remarkable in their capacity to forgive.

Well, Humane Society Naples overcame the myriad challenges of late 2021 and early 2022 to have another great year. There were puppies and kittens and even a hedgehog – oh my!

Our team works so hard to make the best use of your support, doing lifesaving work every single day thanks to you. The incredible community you are a part of has continued to step up for our mission and I couldn’t be more humbled.

At the same time, our community has never needed us more.

Changes in our landscape here in Collier County mean that more and more families need our help every single day. And when it comes down to it, that’s who we help – families. Our animals are such a vital part of our families. Of course, we have the delight of helping to build families with our adoption program, creating lifelong bonds and building empathy as we go. But so much of our work in the coming year will focus on helping established families stay together.

*as of September 2022

When an unexpected month-long trip to the hospital means a family cat is suddenly without care, our Operation Rescue program provides temporary boarding services to avoid surrendering the kitty. When a family is faced with the heartbreaking decision between paying a sky-high lifesaving vet bill or paying rent and surrendering their loving dog, our Compassionate Care program helps keep that family together. If a family is considering giving up their dog because his potty manners weren’t perfect and now the landlord is grumpy – our behavior team can provide behavioral training services to save the day.

I’ve always said that we save lives – but whose? We’re proud to be working hard to keep saving the lives of our community’s animals, and the lives of those who love them. It’s a great honor to do this work with you, and I thank you.



There is a family for everyone.




was born on the streets of Puerto Rico. We do not know what kind of experiences she had there, but clearly her interactions with people had not been positive. Sad and afraid at the All Sato Rescue on the island, she was one of the most fearful dogs we had ever received in transfer to Humane Society Naples. She was comfortable with her doggie roommates here, but if she saw a human walk by, she would lunge at the glass and bark furiously. She was nearly impossible to leash and when taken out for her playtime, she would stay as far away as possible from her caregiver.

She enjoyed the wading pool in the play yard, she enjoyed romping with the other dogs in shelter. But humans…?

After about five months at HSN, a patient and skilled volunteer was able to introduce her to a long lead. This showed her how enjoyable walking with a person could be. She gradually was learning to trust from the 15-foot distance of a long leash, but still refused any sort of petting or close contact.

Enter a family six months after her arrival here, with their adopted golden retriever and German shepherd in tow, who wanted to have Panda join their “pack.” Panda came to the meet and greet yard and promptly hugged the fence, as far away from them as possible. She stared balefully back at the two doggies and ignored the humans entirely. But this family just knew…. They gave her time, and suddenly she and the two dogs began playing, bobbing up and down to check each other out, and then dashing around the yard in joy. And then a miracle….Panda went right over to her new “dad” and nudged him to pet her. She leaned right into him and wagged her tail. She chose him to be the head of her new family. Her humans continue to work with

our behavior team to ensure that Panda’s inclination to flee is reduced. HSN even provided her with a GPS collar in case she tries to run away – but so far, Panda’s bond with the family she adopted only grows!




Raw, gaping wounds…when Tucker first arrived at our veterinary clinic as an emergency case from DAS, he literally had been mauled by some kind of animal in the wild.

We partner closely with the Domestic Animal Services Department of Collier County (DAS), particularly when our veterinary and behavioral teams are needed to save an animal who might otherwise have to be humanely euthanized.

Tucker is a survivor. He had escaped from a living situation that was unkind. But he did not realize that the wilds of the swamps and hammocks of rural Collier County could be so cruel.

HSN’s lead veterinarian, Dr. John Morton, remembers “Tucker came to us from a terribly traumatic background and was in really rough shape. Underweight, deep, open, and infected wounds, and so fearful he would urinate at any movement.”

HSN’s Dr. Natalie Brown further recalls, “Tucker was one of the first patients I treated at HSN. I remember Dr. Morton just casually asking me if I could change the bandage on this dog that had an exposed mandible… I thought I heard him wrong. But then I met Tuckie and fell in love. When I realized the lengths this organization would allow the medical team to take, I knew I was in a really special place.”

Now fully recovered from his injuries, Tucker is also heartworm positive after living in neglect for so long. His condition is being successfully treated and he will recover fully from the parasite. Longer-term, he is recovering emotionally with the care and skill of our Behavior team and the volunteers who support that sensitive work. He is one of our “Blue Dogs” (see page 11), animals that have become overwhelmed by life. They often feel just swamped by the world around them. These dogs need patience, calm, and slow, gentle work to help them blossom.

Tucker had mastered the art of escape in his early years, so when he happily went home with his foster family, it was with a GPS collar, fully charged, at no cost to his foster family, and will stay with him once he is forever adopted. His foster brother is an alpha who is teaching him the ways of being a family dog with people who truly love him.

This is a dog with a beautiful spirit and a determination to live. We are honored to help him and so many thousands of other lost, abandoned, neglected, abused and injured or ill dogs, cats and small mammals from throughout Collier County. We are grateful to be able to do this critical live-saving work thanks to the support of our wider community.

Muchof Collier County is challenged by “veterinary deserts.” The County is so large and parts of it are so under-served or have pockets of significant poverty that access to medical care for pets is virtually impossible.

Launched in January of 2021 thanks to a compassionate gift by Jennifer Conery, the Mobile Veterinary Clinic (MVC) aims to bring free or reduced-cost medical care, services and information to people and pets in communities who are unable to access or afford these services. The MVC program delivers affordable wellness, prevention and basic care as well as surgical services to areas of the County that otherwise would not have access to any vet care. A second MVC will begin service in 2023 thanks to the kindness of Patty and Jay Baker.

The MVC delivers its services in three locations each month: Everglades City, North Naples and Golden Gate City. There are no income qualifications for clients; instead, there is an honor system for payments with the expectation that people financially contribute what they are able to towards their pet’s visit. (There is a $10 minimum contribution per pet). Services

include: basic wellness exams, spay and neuter surgeries, canine and feline vaccines, nail trim/ ear cleaning, anal gland expression, spay and neuter surgery, and preventatives.

The numbers are noted in the results reported here. But the numbers don’t tell the whole story. Communities who often mistrusted animal authorities now see our MVC as a place to come for help without fear of losing their pet because the pet has not received adequate care in the past and thus may be in poor condition. Families who might not have been aware of other programs at HSN or other community services now have access and information from our MVC counselors via Collier Cares and other information we have garnered about available social services. We have just created a social worker position attached to the MVC to help reach out still further to assist families whose issues with their pets can sometimes be just the tip of the iceberg of problems needing attention. HSN has long had a strong commitment to community outreach and the MVC in its first year and a half of operation has exponentially increased our ability to act on that commitment.

A Second MVC To Launch

Closed for most of FY21 because of COVID, HSN’s Behavior Department used that time to evaluate and update the services it provides to the animals and our community. Major changes since the start of 2022 have significantly increased volunteer effectiveness, public educational programs, and the quality of life for the animals coming to us who need behavioral interventions.


More than 55 private clients benefited from individualized instruction in the last year. These personalized classes are offered to all adopters from HSN and to members of the public needing help to keep from surrendering their pets to the shelter. Over 65% of our adopters took advantage of this private instruction to help integrate their new pets into their homes.

HSN also launched digital training through a partnership with Goodpup to touch more adopters and the general public.

Additionally, HSN offers important group lessons. Most popular is the AKC Star Puppy Class (always a waiting list for this one). Coming soon is the Basic Manners – CGC Prep 1 class to allow owners and their dogs to work towards the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen award.

While the largest reason for surrenders to shelters these days is housing crises, animal behavioral challenges remain another big reason people will consider giving up their pet. HSN is committed to keeping pets with their loving families and helping humans and their dogs or cats learn how to enjoy their years together.



rehabilitation of the most vulnerable canine population in the shelter takes place primarily at the Oaks Campus. There we can provide one-on-one intensive training for 20-30 dogs at a time.

At Oaks, staff members work 7 days a week with every dog using science-based protocols to rehabilitate behaviors such as reactivity to people and other animals, resource guarding, extremely shy and fearful behavior, and any other behavior preventing a speedy adoption. The success of the program, even in its early stages, has been outstanding. Fully operational in March of 2022, the Oaks Campus has had 25 successful adoptions of its graduates.



The past year saw development of a color-coded system of rating dog behaviors at HSN. We now can even better align behavior and volunteer services when a dog enters the shelter and continuing after they are in their adoptive homes.

All dogs at HSN receive individualized skills and training to suit their needs. Additionally, volunteers working with our dogs can now more clearly access mentor opportunities, identify specific classes geared to best practices when dealing with the dogs, and

grow their behavior and training skills working alongside the Animal Care and Behavior teams to provide the best possible quality of life to the canine residents of HSN.

Learn more about the four new classifications we’re using to better match dogs with their adoptive homes.


Revitalized behavioral programming results from COVID closure.

In FY23 we will be launching an online Resource Library for common behavior problems families with pets face. This will include handouts and videos for canines and felines.

We are also working on a Behavior Foster Program to help our behaviorally-challenged dogs get a break from shelter life and practice their new skills in a home before adoption.

Finally, we are looking at problem-pet issues affecting families in our area and creating new classes and delivery methods to increase understanding needed to keep canine companions in their homes and out of the shelter.


Dogs who enjoy the company of other people and dogs, love to play or relax next to you, and are suitable for any type of environment.

Dogs who are more active, more vocal, and live by the motto play hard, love hard. They, too, are suitable for almost any environment and situation.

These dogs take play hard to a new level. They live life on their terms. Some are jumpy, some have no manners, some would rather not share attention, and some have a level of stranger danger, but all are lovable, nonetheless.

Blue dogs tend to be overwhelmed by life. They come from a protected environment where they were not exposed to the variety of life and often feel just swamped by the world around them. These dogs need patience, calm, and slow, gentle work to help them blossom.

An update from LingLing’s foster family


came to us as a foster in November of 2020, reports his foster family. We had been housebound because of COVID and our own two fur babies had crossed the Rainbow Bridge some time before that. We were lonely, but did not want to commit to the years of raising another cat.

We asked if there was an older cat who needed some special attention. We knew we could provide that! And we were introduced to Ling Ling. She was special in many ways: she had been declawed by her previous owners; she had some dermatological issues and needed special medication and food; she was not a cuddly cat and hated to be picked up or “smothered”

with affection. Great! Just what we wanted – a challenge.

When we first brought her to her new home, she was very cautious about where she went and did not like it when anyone else came into the house. She found several interesting hiding places: behind our family room TV in the builtin; under a sofa; and on a shelf in my office.

She was also initially a biter. Because she was declawed, that was her only defense. We learned rather quickly not to try to pick her up at random or to try to get her to lap-sit. As she grew more accustomed to us – and we to her –the biting began to get rarer. We both remarked

Ling Ling at the main HSN Shelter location before going to a foster home that helped her learn how to trust humans again.

that she had a very elegant “sit” so we began calling her “The Princess” -- a reference to her regal mode and to her knowing exactly how to get what she wanted!

We had her in our lives for almost eighteen months until she found a Forever Home. During that time, she learned that we were her friends, and she could trust us.

We were heartbroken when her new Forever Cat Mommy found her, but we were also thrilled that she would be living out the rest of her life in a warm, loving home with someone who was as devoted to her as we were. Fostering is tough. It is tough not because of the daily care, feeding, and loving of the Foster, but because you know that eventually, you will be giving up this life with whom you’ve been entrusted. Fostering Ling Ling was a gift to us in our lives. We were so thankful that she thrived with us.

We knew that because of the training and support we received from HSN, we were able to give her the special attention she needed to become so much more desirable and to find a Forever Home.

Ling Ling is thriving in her new Forever Home! She even now has her own Instagram page (#linglingthegirlgirl)!

You may have seen our Paws Around Town bus zipping around Naples and wider Collier County. Have you ever wondered what is happening inside?

There may be a crew of trained volunteers bringing animals to visit senior living and memory facilities for pet therapy. There may be a Humane Education specialist on his way to interact with school students or summer campers. You could even see a pop-up tent appear right next to the bus in support of local business and civic association events, offering information on responsible pet ownership and on how to adopt a dog or cat – or even a rabbit or guinea pig!


Limited over the last couple of years by the COVID outbreak, the Supportive Paws program is expanding from its three contracted senior care and memory facilities to begin to include anyplace where pet therapy can help people to heal. Right now, that includes cancer treatment centers, psychological counseling centers and veterans’ groups working with PTSD. If you know of a program that could benefit from Supportive Paws visits, please contact pawsaroundtown@hsnaples.org


Alex Woods worked for four years in Animal Care and Behavior Training at HSN before taking over as Paws Around Town Coordinator in February, 2022. He reports that his work with local schools and summer camps is primarily with pre-k and elementary-aged children.

Notes Alex, “The most frequent educational lesson I’ve been doing is called Pawsitive Interactions and it focuses on greeting and petting unfamiliar animals. I teach the kids to always ask owners if it’s ok to pet their animal, let the animal smell your hand, be gentle while petting, and other tips on how to interact positively with a pet. My favorite part of this program is seeing the kids light up when they get to meet the animals. Sometimes I take a kitten, sometimes I take a dog. Sometimes there are children that are afraid and I get to foster a happy interaction between the child and our shelter animal. I’ve seen children literally come out of their shell which is really gratifying.”

Alex has also coordinated with three different schools to allow children to write letters as if they were one of the shelter animals and then have these letters displayed by that animal’s kennel.

Alex stops for a photo at a Paws Around Town visit to The Village School of Naples where children wrote Letters From Pets.

Education, adoption, and awareness...on the move!

One of the letters writtem by a student

These letters are written from the perspective of the animal asking to be adopted, with some including artwork of the animal made by the children. Alex reports, “I have been visiting these schools after they submit artwork to thank the children for their work. I have presented the classes with a Thank You dog artwork piece actually made by our shelter dogs’ paws (and sometimes tongues!) with animal-safe paints. And when the youngsters hear that they have helped get a pet a new home, they are really excited.” If you stop by HSN at either our main location or the von Arx satellite location, you will see some of these letters from pets on display!

Paws Around Town also supports local community events ranging from supporting other local non-profits and civic organizations to small businesses. Some of the events attended in FY22 include the Veterans Expo, David Lawrence Center Mind Your Mind Mental Health Day and the Collier County NAACP Juneteenth Celebration.

And in 2022-23, the Paws bus will begin offering off-site adoptions of kittens, too!

Just in time for the holidays, Ranger leaves the von Arx Adoption Center for his forever home.

Thevon Arx Satellite Adoption Center opened in North Naples in December 2019. This Center is the first in a projected plan to open additional satellites to serve growing population centers throughout Collier County. “Last year, in its first full year of operation, the von Arx Center accounted for more than 36% of all our adoptions,” noted CEO Sarah Baeckler. “This certainly proved to us the wisdom in having adoptable animals available to parts of the county where families wanting pets were moving in large numbers.”

Then in June 2022 the von Arx Center reached another significant milestone. It logged its 1,000th adoption from that location, situated in the Green Tree Center at Immokalee and Airport-Pulling Road.

The von Arx center features a brightly lit 3,000 sq. ft. space that houses up to 40 dogs, cats and small mammals. Its cheerful colors and large, comfortable animal quarters offers potential adopters with a positive experience that removes any of the negative stigmas some might still associate with animal shelters. Volunteers play as important a role in daily care for the animals at von Arx as at our main shelter. The satellite is also perfectly situated for Rescue Recess volunteers who enjoy taking adoptable dogs out for a walk-about to give them a break from in-shelter life.



The Denny Plesea Pet Food Bank is one of the keystones of our surrender prevention efforts.

Denny Plesea was the much-loved artist-in-residence for Ruby Lane, Inc., an online emporium of antiques and vintage items founded by Denny’s husband, Tom Johnson. Denny also was a devoted animal lover. Upon his passing in 2021, Tom wanted to honor Denny’s memory in a way that would do the most good. He elected to make a very generous donation to the Humane Society Naples’ pet food bank to honor Denny in January, 2022.

“Especially now, with inflation pressures, many families are struggling to feed their pets,” reflects Sarah Baeckler, Chief Executive Officer for HSN. “We focus much of our effort on keeping pets in loving homes whenever we can. The Denny Plesea Pet Food Bank allows a family facing financial hardship

to find time to rebuild without having to suffer the enormous upset of losing a pet or pets.” She further remarks, “These animals often give the kind of unconditional love that a family or individual needs in trying times. It is better for the family, better for the animals, and, frankly, less costly to the community to keep an animal with its family than to have to shelter and rehome it.”

Pet food suppliers generously provide donations of food and kitty litter, and many local residents also donate essential supplies. Nonetheless, our pet food bank resources are limited, especially with current demand on the rise.

If you wish to contribute, please be aware that we cannot accept open/used pet foods or medical supplies. Thank you for helping to make a life-saving difference for animals in our community!

Especially now, with inflation pressures, many families are struggling to feed their pets. We focus much of our effort on keeping pets in loving homes whenever we can.

BOW WOW Brunch

November 19, 2021 December 5, 2021

November 2021 saw the inauguration of a new major event – My Rescue Rescued Me (MRRM) dance party at Baker Park! This was HSN’s first gala since the start of COVID.

More than 250 grateful animal lovers celebrated the dogs, cats and other furry friends that helped them get through the pandemic. The fabulous crowd opened their hearts, helping Humane Society Naples raise over $440,000 in support of our life-saving mission.

Opening with an exclusive VIP dinner in the park’s Eva Sugden-Gomez Center to honor sponsors and major donors of the evening, all party-goers enjoyed great food and drinks later in a celebration tent under the stars. A more informal vibe than in past years, MRRM promised less gala, more dancing… and guests delightedly danced the night away to the music of The (incredible!) Rivertown Band.

December saw the return of the much-loved Bow Wow Brunch. This 6th annual event, generously hosted by D’Amico’s The Continental brought together guests with their furry friends for a delicious brunch, a glittering raffle with lots of tempting items, and live entertainment, raising over $25,000 to support the animals coming to us for care.

January 29, 2022 May 19, 2022

January’s coldest day of the year saw 400 hardy souls braving “crisp conditions” to enjoy the 16th annual Run for the Paws 5K at Naples’ Civil Air Patrol. Our Top Dog for the 6th year in a row was Mila, a Humane Society Naples alumna, and her human, Steven. The chilly day raised a cool $22,000 to support our shelter animals.

Ending our event year on a very high note was the second season of Dancing With the Local Stars Naples in May.

Eight local stars with their professional dance partners performed before the largest audience ever seen at an HSN event! Close to 800 guests filled the hall at Artis-Naples to see the amazing performances which raised almost $500,000 to benefit HSN.

Congratulations to Overall Dance Contest winner Robin Schiller with her partner Martin Cardoso. Special honors, too, to Best Friends of HSN Mary Stone and Quenby Tyler who were our champion fundraisers for this exceptional evening.

Humane Society Naples also sincerely thanks the many other donors in FY2022 who made contributions up to $250.

We make every effort to ensure the accuracy of these lists. Please contact us immediately if you have a question, correction or concern at: 239-643-1555, ext. 41 or development@hsnaples.org

Thank you, again, for your commitment to and compassion for the animals.

Marley, just one of the senior dogs that was adopted in the past year.


FY22 figures reported here were compiled prior to completion of our formal audit, underway when this report went to press.  Final audited figures will be available upon request.  This past year was an outlier year for HSN’s finances. A combination of inflation, a competitive job market in our field, and the downturn in the market acted together to impact our bottom line. Thankfully

we have the resources to continue
lifesaving work even when outside influences are negative.



Saving lives! Between our lifesaving veterinary services, our surrender diversion services, our crisis boarding and our adoption program, we will save thousands of pets’ lives in the upcoming year. Not to mention the humans we save right along with their furry friends. There is no greater honor.

Thanks to a generous contribution from Patty and Jay Baker, we’ll be doubling our Mobile Veterinary Clinic fleet from one to two, allowing us to bring critical veterinary care to even more of Collier County.

After what feels like endless renovation, we’ll be reopening our Oaks campus with a special focus on behavioral rehabilitation for one of our most vulnerable populations –dogs with behavioral challenges. These pups are at extreme risk of euthanasia in most other shelters around the state, and even the country, and we are proud to put our expert team to work helping them recover.

Based on the resounding success of the von Arx Adoption Center, we’re starting to plan a second satellite adoption and resource center, most likely in the eastern portion of Collier County where much growth is planned over the next decade. It likely won’t be open until late 2023 or 2024, but planning is underway.

Partnering with you! We have doubled down on assisting our devoted supporters with estate and legacy planning and it’s easier than ever (see our website for details). Not only can you create a legacy to ensure Humane Society Naples can keep doing its lifesaving work, but perhaps most importantly, we can help you design a plan that ensures your animals will be well loved and taken care of should the need ever arise.

Cats, cats, cats! We’re developing increased programming to better serve our neonatal kittens and our geriatric cats. These populations don’t do well in even the best possible shelter habitats, so we are piloting some home-like care environments.

Continuing to partner with as many under-resourced shelters in the state as we can, transferring in dogs and cats at immediate risk of euthanasia due to space.

We’re always working to grow our foster program. Our foster families allow us to save even more lives by multiplying our spaces available, thereby creating more room in the shelter for critical cases.

For 62 years, Humane Society Naples has worked to improve the lives of companion animals -- and the people who love them -- throughout Collier County. A fourstar charity with Charity Navigator, HSN is a no-kill rescue organization. We care for dogs and cats, puppies and kittens, and “smalls,” - rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, ferrets, and sometimes even hedgehogs -- needing a second chance at life. Each year, we help thousands of animals, families and individuals through programs ranging from pet adoption to veterinary services, emergency boarding to crisis pet food support.

We have three guiding principles that govern our animal care:

1. Treat and place more animals in homes faster

2. Keep already-adopted animals in their loving homes

3. Seek to transform “unadoptables” into pets who can enjoy a second chance at a life every pet deserves.

Yes, HSN is a shelter and adoption center. But we offer so much more. Our full-service veterinary clinic provides care to the furry members of thousands of families in our region. Our behavior team offers training for individuals and families hoping to keep more challenging pets in their loving homes. In addition to our main shelter adjacent to the Naples airport, our Oaks facility offers a special behavioral training program for traumatized or hard-to-manage animals plus emergency pet boarding assistance for people who need a safe place for their pets to stay when facing life’s harder challenges. Our satellite adoption center in North Naples is the first of many anticipated to serve areas in our community where population is booming. We provide a pet food pantry for families facing financial crises, a mobile veterinary clinic to serve areas in Collier County where with limited access to veterinary care, humane education programs both in schools and at community events, pet visits to senior and memory care facilities, and at every moment, we advocate for the animals of our community.


Sheltering animals in times of need, locating life-long homes and advocating for responsible pet ownership.
