The Gulf Coast Humane Society has been awarded a Florida License Plate Grant that has enabled the not-for-profit organization to give free spay and neuters to the pets of families on public assistance.
This exciting grant has made it possible for GCHS to provide free spay/neuters to family pets in our community, making spay/neuter possible for families who would otherwise not be able to afford the procedure for their pets, officials said.
Jennifer Galloway, executive director of GCHS, announced that the shelter is half way to its goal, adding that she hopes the public will, "reach out to those around you and inform them about this exciting opportunity so that we can spay and neuter to save lives." For information on this free service call 239-332-2719. Galloway added that the number of vouchers available for the program is limited to 500. GCHS is a no-kill shelter and does not euthanize any animal for lack of space or length of time that they are in the care of the shelter. You can meet the residents of the shelter at 2010 Arcadia Street Fort Myers, open Sundays.
