The Gulf Coast Humane Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit, animal welfare organization. Our shelter does not receive any federal, state, or county funding and no funding from the Humane Society of the United States or ASPCA. We rely solely on donations, grants, bequests and fundraising events to further our mission of caring for the neglected and abandoned pets of SW Florida. As a no-kill facility,... the pets of the GCHS remain in our care until they find their Forever Home. The veterinary clinic provides affordable veterinary care for the community and all proceeds are used to fund and further the shelter's mission.
