My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Meet Beau. He is a big, playful, loving pup. Unfortunately, this sweet dog has been in and out of a home a couple of times. He first came to us from Lee County Domestic Animal Services, as they were running out of space. We often pull from local county shelters that are forced to euthanize their animals when they become overpopulated. This makes us so very sad at ARC, but at least we have the happiness from knowing that our residents will ALWAYS have a home, even if they are returned someday. This has twice been the case with poor Beau.

We promptly found Beau his first adopted home in 2019. He was returned later that year because his adoptive family, “No longer had time for him.” Poor Beau! We then found him his next home in 2020. Sadly, he was returned to ARC again in 2022 when his adopters decided to expand their family, and no longer had space for this sweet guy.

We need his next family to be his LAST! He is a wonderful dog. He is good with children and other dogs. He loves to play and give and receive affection. Won’t you be the last stop for this sweet guy? He’d love to finally settle in to his forever home! Please reach out today!

My ideal home:
I really would love a home to finally call my forever home...

More about this rescue

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.
