My story:

This wonderfully affectionate and charming young boy came to us by way of Clewiston Animal Control.  He was seized from a terrible hoarding situation where he was one of 12-15 dogs being kept locked inside a mobile home.  They often had to fight to get enough food, and were never let outside.  Poor Grant had never even seen grass, and was afraid of everything.  When we went to Clewiston to pick him up, he was just absolutely pathetic.  He sat on the cold floor, turned towards a corner in the room.  He was so afraid.  We started to get him to trust us with bits of boiled chicken.  After a couple of hours, we were able to corral him into a crate to bring him back to ARC.  After months of gaining his trust, we finally got him out of isolation and out into a lodge.  You just wouldn't believe the difference that shear LOVE has made in this dog's life!  He is the most affectionate, loving little creature!  He loves to zoom around his yard with his best friend Delaney.  He truly has a happy life, now.

Grant is being treated for heartworms.  He is not yet available for adoption, but will be before too long.  We will update his bio as soon as he becomes available.

As heartworm treatment is a lengthy and expensive process when done properly, ARC can always use a little help towards medical costs.  Feel free to click the Sponsor link below to help out.  Every dollar counts!

PDATE:  Grant has completed his heartworm treatment and is now Negative!  He is officially available for adoption!

My ideal home:

I would give anything for a happy, loving and playful home!

About Animal Refuge Center

About Our Shelter...

The Animal Refuge Center (ARC) of Fort Myers is a not for profit animal welfare society dedicated to stopping the escalating cost to impound, care for, kill and dispose of dogs and cats dying for no reason other than having been born. ARC is helping to cut the large numbers of homeless animals which eventually cuts the costs to taxpayers, which to date has reached over half a million dollars a year.

ARC is a non-euthanasia organization. Once we accept an animal for adoption, IT WILL NOT BE DESTROYED TO MAKE ROOM FOR ANOTHER. We are here to help the unwanted and neglected animals who now face certain death.
