Cape Coral Approves Plans for First No-Kill Animal Shelter

One and a half million animals are euthanized in shelters each year, according to the ASPCA.

Cape Coral is trying to not be apart of this statistic any longer by approving the city’s first no-kill animal shelter.

The Cape Coral Animal Shelter is a new non-profit working to make a difference in SWFL. The shelter has made progress and has officially secured land for the no-kill shelter.

The city has approved a 99-year lease across from Sun Splash Family Water Park, for this shelter.

They are hoping to break ground within the next few months, once all of their funding is in place.

The project will be completed in two phases.

Phase 1 will include an adoption center, intake area, reception, small medical area, offices, play yard and a small animal grooming area.

Phase 2 is when they plan to grow the facility to accommodate more animals and a larger Medical Clinic and teaching area for school visits and education.
