Friends of Gummi

Our Pet List


Hi! We kitties are here and we're expecting to be in excellent homes very soon. Only the most loving families should apply to adopt us, 'cause we're too cute, too much fun, and in much demand. There are lots of us in all colors, 8 to 16 weeks old, and we're all lovey and playful. And we're pre-spoiled for your convenience. ADULT CATS ARE ADOPTED FREE OF CHARGE - all are fixed, fecal & blood tested, fully vaccinated, and microchipped.



Hello! Don't forget us puppies. We're here too and we're wanting especially great "forever" homes where we can love you and bring lots of joy to your family. Remember, we're just little puppies and we poop everywhere at first, and we chew stuff, and we play non-stop, that is until we collapse and sleep. But even though we're a lot of work initially, we're the most fun you will ever have. We know you'll love us! We can be adopted into homes with cats, dogs, and children. For puppy availability, please email Janice Rudolph at

Friends of Gummi, Inc. is a non-profit, no-kill, all volunteer animal shelter in Collier County, Florida. We are supported solely by donations and fundraisers. Friends of Gummi is a kitten and puppy rescue and adoption agency serving Naples, Collier County, Bonita Springs, and Estero.

We also operate a Trap/Neuter/Relocate program for feral cats; a low cost spay/neuter program for financially disadvantaged pet owners; and an Educational Program for Grades K through 5 wherein we teach pet responsibility and discuss the pet overpopulation crisis.

The Friends of Gummi food bin is located in the adoption center at the Petsmart Store, at the Coconut Point Shopping District, on the Tamiami Trail (41) in South Estero should you have anything to donate for our wonderful kittens or puppies. We are always in need of quality canned kitten food, as well as cat litter, and toys.


As always, we are looking for volunteers to help in our kitten facility, as well as foster parents for puppies and kittens. We particularly need foster homes for our sweet, loving adult cats, many of whom are declawed. Adoption counselors are always needed, as is help with fundraising and public relations. For more information, please contact Janice Rudolph at


We are desperately in need of farms, or homes on larger properties, where our unfriendly cats could live out their lives working as mousers for you. Our barn cats are free and have been tested, vaccinated, and fixed. They do not bite or scratch, they just prefer to be left alone by people, but they absolutely love other cats. If you do not already have a couple of outdoor cats on your property, then please consider our barn cats. You will never have another rat or mouse getting into your home, or into your horse's food; and you will be saving the lives of these wonderful cats who are unadoptable as indoor house cats. Thank you. Please contact Janice Rudolph at


We are looking for special homes for our loving, and affectionate kitties who test positive for Feline Aids. These kitties can live a normal life for many, many years, often a normal lifespan whereupon they succumb to another ailment. So please open your heart and home to a wonderful companion who will love your forever for saving their life. Thank you. Please contact Janice Rudolph at
