Finding A Home For Peanut - Update - Found!

FORT MYERS, FL. -- Peanut is a 15 year old Jack Russell who lives with her owner, Linda.

Linda is declining rapidly, is very weak, can barely talk, and can no longer take care of Peanut. Though Peanut has been her family for the past 15 years, Linda wants peace of mind, knowing that Peanut is going to a new home.

Peanut is a female dog, spayed, house broken, gentle and loving. She rarely barks. She is established with a local vet, her shots are up to date and she is very healthy.

Peanut is used to being in a quiet household and due to her age, should go to a similar household.

Linda will be losing her paid caregiver as of the end of the day today, Tuesday, July 15th. Hope Healthcare Services is hoping to find a new home for Peanut, as soon as possible. If you are at all interested in meeting Peanut and taking her home, please let me know.

Hope Healthcare Services can help pay for Peanut’s initial vet needs, grooming, and start up supplies.

If interested, please contact Colette Johns, volunteer coordinator at 985-7728 or email at If you know of someone who may be interested, please help us by passing this information along.

Update: Linda passed away in her own home early Wednesday evening. Peanut was by her side. Minutes later, Pat O’Hare, our volunteer, arrived at the door, unshaken by what she walked into. Pat reported that Peanut greeted her with a wagging tail. Pat took Peanut to Jungle Paws on Pine Island, for temporary boarding.

Nikki, in Labelle, called to say that she wants to give Peanut a new, quiet home. Nikki lost her own dog recently and would welcome the companionship.

Thank you to everyone who helped to make this happen! The hospice staff, the volunteers, the Jungle Paws staff, Nikki, and everyone who passed the word along!
