LEE COUNTY, Fla.-- Cinco de Mayo may be over, but a Southwest Florida shelter wants you and your pet to keep the party going, all to help animals in the community.

The Gulf Coast Humane Society is having their Once de Mayo party, on Friday, May 11, 2018. It will be at the Bell Tower Shops in Fort Myers from 6-8 p.m.

Pet owners can enter their dogs in a Cinco de Mayo themed costume contest for a $5 donation to the shelter. The best-dressed dog will get a prize. 

Throughout the event, you can meet adoptable dogs from the shelter. Proceeds from the event go to the GCHS.

Our pet of the week is Isabella, a 1 year and 9 month old bull terrier mix. She has a tough exterior but is actually a sweetheart. Isabella is part of the Dolly's Dream program, which highlights two bully-breed type dogs at a time to help their chances of getting adopted. 

Back in April, we had Toni, a shih tzu, featured on our pet of the week segment. He was adopted the same day. 

For more information on Once de Mayo or how to adopt Isabella, go to the shelter's website.
