Meet Missy and her new family. Missy and her sister, Debbie, are ARK rescues whose lives were saved after being pulled from Tampa’s high kill shelter. Both were frightened during the transport to FloridaWild but once surrounded by affection and exceptional care they blossomed. ARK’s president, Maggi Hall, Dr. Erin Holder’s mom, had them evaluated as possible ESA candidates – Emotional Support Animals – by ARK and FloridaWild’s new dog trainer. The sisters passed with flying colors.

Two weeks ago Missy was transported to Jacksonville Beach to become an ESA for an autistic child. The family bonding was immediate and “rescued” Missy resides in her new home – forever safe. The question is: “Who rescued whom?”

Debbie had heart worms and is being treated at FloridaWild where she resides awaiting a forever home. Won’t you consider adding another furry to your family? Visit to view ARK’s rescues.
