When the time has come to make the heart breaking decision to surrender your pet, make sure you have all of the resources available to you so you can weigh your options carefully. Many shelters are at capacity so you may have to be resourceful in finding a shelter who can take your pet in at this time. Don’t give up!

Special sanctuaries and Refuge Centers

INCREDIBLE: Caboodle Ranch - a 30 acre cat rescue sanctuary founded by Craig Grant who cared enough to make a difference in the lives of our fuzzy little friends. Craig keeps hundreds of cats in his amazing Cat City. Caboodle Ranch is now a permanent sanctuary for cats who have been kicked around by heartless people. A must see. Make sure to see his videos and read his story.
Journey's End Animal Sanctuary - provides lifetime care and shelter for dogs, cats, horses, pigs, sheep, and birds that have been abused, neglected or have special needs. Rather than emphasizing adoption, Journey's End provides a homelike setting where animals can enjoy the remainder of their lives in a comfortable, loving atmosphere.
Animal Refuge Center of Fort Myers - Nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter caring for and re-homing abandoned cats and dogs in Southwest Florida. Includes information about adoptable animals, events, newsletter, ways to help and membership application.
