Myra - Now Available!

5 year 2 month  old Female Rat Terrier Mix

I've been at ARC for 2 months and 25 days

Weight: 30 Pounds

My story:


ARC has worked with a shelter in Louisiana after severe flooding in the fall of 2016 led to massive overcrowding.  Myra came to us as part of the Rising Waters Rescue Effort from Louisiana, with her two young puppies.   Her puppies have both been adopted, and soon it will be her turn!  Myra is a gorgeous girl that loves to run and play.  Like many dogs rescued in these circumstances, Myra was heartworm positive.  Heartworm disease is lengthy and expensive to treat, but ARC is always happy to provide these dogs with a second chance at a healthy life!  Myra is currently undergoing heartworm treatment and, pending completion, will be ready to find her perfect 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.
