With your help, Greater Good Charities was able to renovate Gulf Coast Humane Society's (GCHS) lobby and help provide improved spaces for cats in their charge. Now, they’re headed back to Fort Myers for Phase 2 of their project: giving shelter dogs bigger spaces and second chances.
Last year, GCHS’ lobby went through a massive renovation that included custom tile, cabinets, and desks. Rescue Rebuild also completely renovated their adjacent cat rooms to create two free-roaming spaces – plus a meet-and-greet space for their cats! Two multi-purpose rooms connected to the lobby have been built in order to highlight animals that have been at the shelter for a long time.
Now, Rescue Rebuild is heading back to finish the job – and the next phase of this project is all about dogs! It’s time to give the GCHS pups the same treatment, with fresh paint and glass-front kennels to foster a welcoming space for adopters to find their new pets. The new kennels will also be taller so the shelter can show off their big dogs too.
Sheba is one of the pups who has gotten a second chance through GCHS. Last year, a video went viral of a young man beating his dog in the backseat of his car at a RaceTrac gas station. This dog was Sheba. Thankfully, she survived the brutal beating and the perpetrator was identified, arrested, and charged. Sheba, at just two-years-old, was taken to GCHS. In a few weeks, she found a new home and a new owner who loves her the way she deserves to be loved.
So many dogs like Sheba need help. With these new renovations, GCHS hopes to help even more pups find safety and love.
