Animal Relief Foundation – Aruba (ARF-Aruba) is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit.
100% of donated funds go directly to furthering the ARF-Aruba mission and are tax-deductible in the United States. We provide veterinary care, food, shelter, and in best cases a forever home to help these animals. We also try to spay/neuter as many dogs and cats as possible to humanely control their population.
MacGyver is our miracle dog that was rescued from Aruba’s streets about 3 years ago, with 2 broken legs on the same side of his body after being hit by a car. Surgeries to repair his broken legs were unsuccessful, thus causing him to lose his left rear leg. At the moment, his left front leg is the focus of attempts to save it from amputation. Our sweet MacGyver now lives at Iguana Dog Resort on the island, which is possibly where he may spend the rest of his life. He receives such excellent care there, and he is so loved by his care takers.
MacGyver is a fearless boy that doesn’t focus on what is missing. He focuses on tail wags, doggie smiles, and doggie licks. In the meantime, teamwork abounds as a solution is sought to save at least part of his left front leg. His pain is managed with expensive meds as veterinarians discuss how to proceed with a partial amputation in an effort to provide MacGyver with a prosthesis.
A prosthetic device from a company in the U.S. will give this beautiful boy with the will to live a second chance. MacGyver’s meds are expensive, his surgery will be expensive, and the prosthesis is extremely expensive. ARF-Aruba welcomes all the financial support it can get. Donations for MacGyver’s medical expenses can be made below.
We appreciate all the support MacGyver has received to date from concerned citizens. ARF-Aruba works completely through volunteer efforts, and with donated funds.
