COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- It was a year of cheers for the Humane Society Naples.
"We've adopted close to 2800 animals into loving homes so thats a wonderful feeling for all of us."
But with that cheer, there's also panic. One of the Humane Society's most necessary funds has run dry.
"We're in about negative 25,000 dollars this year," said Michael Simonik, the Executive Director of the Humane Society Naples.
It's called the Emergency Pet Care Fund and it allows the Humane Society to rescue pets from other shetlers. Animals who may have special needs like broken legs or heart problems.
"All of the animals that utilize this fund, are animals that just need that one little thing done and then they're perfectly adoptable."
The Humane Society's Executive Director said without that money, they won't be able to help as many pets.
"Theres been about 20 or 30 throughout the year, and they've all been adopted, thats the great thing," said Simonik.
On Tuesday the Humane Society sent an email to supporters asking for help. At last count, they received $7000 in donations.
