By ISABELLE WELLS , Fort Myers Beach Bulletin, Fort Myers Beach Observer

Find A Home Give A Home is an all volunteer not for profit cat and dog rescue organization on Fort Myers Beach, Florida. Our mission is to assist needy cats on Fort Myers Beach with spaying and neutering, medical care, food and finding permanent responsible homes to go to. We do rescue dogs from Kill Shelters including Ft Myers, Naples, Sebring, Tampa, Palm Beach County and Miami. Find A Home Give A Home is dedicated to educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering, reducing overpopulation of cats and dogs and to teach proper pet care. We have great volunteers and we are always searching for new fosters. Donations are always welcome. Without your help we would not be able to help so many great pets. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts!!!!!!

I love Lucy
Lucy was found by a Dumpster, in a cage, with a rope and five very young nursing puppies. They were all adopted and now it is Lucy’s time. She is a three year old Florida Curr/mix. She weighs about 28 pounds. Mom and babies were cared by Kim, Dave and their son in a home in Fort Myers. Lucy was a good mom and took care of the puppies very well. She loves people and will be a great friend for a couple or single person with a fenced in yard.
Note from her foster Mom:
“The sweetest smartest young dog I have known.
She greets us after work with a dance on her hind legs and then a wiggle around the room. She begs us to come play by grabbing your hand or nudging you to get up. She loves her toys and to play fetch. She won’t return the toy but will play “Catch me if you can”.
She is loyal and loving and protective.
Lucy does not like the swimming pool, but loves to run and play in the surf on the Gulf. She does love to lay in the sun. She would love a fenced yard. She loves to run, and boy, can she run. The speed is amazing.
Walks around the neighborhood are a fun part of her day.
She tolerates the family cat and is curious when meeting other dogs her size but is not upset (that is a new development in the last week or so). It seems that Lucy does not like dogs that are smaller than her. She loves to chase squirrels but would not know what to do with it if she caught one.
When we are gone for a few hours she is respectful of the house and furniture. She is house broken and has not pottied inside even when we were later than normal to get home. She knows how to stay, come and sit and is learning to shake, too. Lucy sleeps in our son’s room and, when she is ready for bed, goes straight there and curls up on her blanket.
Lucy is a funny girl and will make the perfect addition to a good home.”
If you would like to meet her and adopt Lucy please let us know. You can email us at or call 239-281-0739.
