CCAS Receives Grant From Petco Love

Cape Coral Animal Shelter receives a $10,000 grant investment from national nonprofit Petco Love in support of the shelter’s lifesaving work for animals in South Florida. 

Petco Love is a national nonprofit leading change for pets by harnessing the power of love to make communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier. Since its founding in 1999, Petco Love has invested $330 million in adoption and other lifesaving efforts. And Petco Love helps find loving homes for pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations — like ours — across North America, with 6.5 million pets adopted and counting. 

“Our investment in the Cape Coral Animal Shelter is part of more than $15M in investments recently announced by Petco Love to power local organizations across the country as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pet is unnecessarily euthanized,” said Susanne Kogut, president of Petco Love. “Our local investments are only part of our strategy to empower animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us. We recently celebrated the one-year launch anniversary of Petco Love Lost, a national lost and found database that uses pet facial recognition technology to simplify the search for lost pets.”

“To be recognized by such a prestigious organization as Petco Love means so much to our small but ever-growing shelter and clinic.  Every dollar we receive goes directly to the care and welfare of the abused, neglected, and abandoned animals we save daily, and we are grateful for the support.” said Liz McCauley, Executive Director of the Cape Coral Animal Shelter.

Cape Coral Animal Shelter and Veterinary Clinic is a nonprofit organization that has been serving South Florida since 2020.  In just two years, CCAS has found homes for over 2,500 unwanted animals and provides low-cost veterinary care to over 5,000 fur patients in our community.
