HELP Naples Animal Shelters IRMA

Hurricane Irma hit Naples, FL on Sept 10 and did extensive damage. The animals in shelters and rescue groups have had a terrible time - no power for AC, the water must be boiled due to sewage back-up, and the volunteers are exhausted. Many animals are being transported to other shelters around the nation because adoption rates will fall dramatically in the next few months in Naples. Residents in Naples are trying to survive and not thinking about adding a new pet into their home. Also, homeowners who have had damage, flooding, or are out of work may relinquish their family pet to the shelters because they can not take care of them anymore.

Please consider donating to this fund, which are distributed and managed by Ericka Basile, long-time Naples resident.  Ms. Basile will withdraw the funds (and pay any fees/taxes) and then distribute the remaining funds (after gofundme fees and/or credit card transaction fees) evenly to the Directors for these animal organizations: Domestic Animal Services Trust Fund,  Humane Society of Naples, Gulf Coast Humane Society, For The Love of Cats and Golden Retriever Rescue of Southwest Florida.

Ericka Basile works for Tall Tails, a pet product manufacturer. She was also the former product scout for Dr. Marty Becker, America's Vet for Good Morning America and Dr. Oz.  Ms. Basile wants to stress that if you can not give funds, please consider donating pet products. These pet products can be mailed to:
803 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples FL 34108.

Thank you. We are all grateful for your help.
