A place for pets between homes

Cape Coral Animal Shelter is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, no-kill animal shelter.

The Cape Coral Animal Shelter organization is dedicated to engaging a special bond between people and animals by means of adoption services, medical care, education and training for the prevention of cruelty and abandonment.  The Cape Coral Animal Shelter will provide a safe place where animals will receive the care they need and remain until they are placed in a qualified, forever home.

We are located off Santa Barbara Blvd at 325 SW 2nd Avenue, Cape Coral, FL 33991.

More than a million pets in the United States have heartworms.  Let that sink in, because it is one of the most horrible statistics regarding our furry friends. 

Since our opening, CCAS has saved the lives of over 200 dogs that were Heartworm Positive.  Some were diagnosed when they arrived, others we knowingly pulled from municipal shelters or other rescues who do not have the resources to treat it. Most of those dogs would have been euthanized or suffered a slow, painful death if the disease went untreated. 

CCAS treats this deadly disease according to the American Heartworm Society Guidelines, which is extremely safe and effective but very expensive.  To date, we have spent over $85,000 for the drugs and veterinary care to treat the 200+ dogs whose lives we saved.

Save lives by donating to the Helping Hearts Fundraiser today! Every dollar you donate will go directly to help treat dogs suffering from this deadly disease. Thank you for your support!
