 Surrender Season :( 

Summer SUCKS in rescue. SUCKS. It's called "surrender season" because surrenders to shelters are at their peak, shelters are FULL and adoptions are low due to vacations, back to school, etc. Rescues are stretched to the limits - as our fosters also have vacations with their families too, planning for back to school...and donations basically bottom out. We plan our best for it, but then there are weeks like this one - where we take in over 12 dogs, with our name on more that are waiting out stray holds, all needing medical care - in addition to the pups we already have in foster recovering from major medical issues - like Logan and his healing broken legs, Howard's jaw, multiple dogs undergoing heartworm treatment - and it stretches us to our limits. These are just a few of the puppers saved this week - now awaiting vet care (not yet adoptable, we don't know much about them yet, please don't ask about adopting them - we have lots of lovely pups waiting for homes now on our website:) As much as our hearts say "save save save", we have to be responsible and make sure we don't overextend ourselves, and we are close to that point. With all of the new pups, and their medical expenses, we need to get that taken care of before we can take on any more pups beyond our current commitments, and we could use a helping paw. You can use any of the donation links here on our website to help us help more pups. No donation is too small, and we appreciate ALL of your support. The pups appreciate it - it literally means EVERYTHING to them. Please share, comment, like on our social media pages (so it shows in more of our fan's feeds). Please. and THANK YOU so much, so very very much.

You can also check out our Amazon Smile Wishlist, which lets you send much needed products right to our pups and foster parents, plus a percentage of your purchases on Amazon are also donated to FLDR when you choose us as your charity of choice!

Gigi, a Chi/Yorkie mix
 
Gigi is a 4 year old female Chi/Yorkie mix and she weighs about 7 pounds. She arrived in rescue through no fault of her own when her previous family had major medical issues with their human child and could no longer properly care for her. She was very confused and nervous at first, but is settling in to foster care. Her foster mom says, "Gigi came into foster very shy and a little scared. At first, she didn’t want me to pick her up and she wouldn’t eat much. She gradually realized that nothing bad was going to happen to her and that foster life is pretty good! She now asks to be picked up and is eating better, although she is a little picky.  Gigi enjoys spending time in the back yard with me so a fenced in yard would be ideal for her. She gets along with the other dogs and cats, although she will chase a cat occasionally. She wouldn’t hurt it but a timid cat might not appreciate it. Gigi isn’t a big talker, however she will alert you if she hears something or when she gets excited about going out in the yard. She loves to sleep in bed with me and give kisses as well! She is a sweet, happy little girl! I think she will probably be a little nervous meeting new people but with love and patience will be a very nice companion for the family who adopts her!" Gigi is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.

 FOSTERS NEEDED!! 

FLDR wants to save as many puppers as we possibly can and the only way to do this is by YOU joining our team!! We need fosters!! If you live in the Orlando area and would like to help save lives, we want you to join our pack! We are in need of foster homes willing to open their hearts and make a space on the couch for a rescued pup, usually just for a couple of weeks! We take care of the vetting, grooming, medications and you provide the love and snuggles! Please complete the "Adoption Application" and just put in the comments - "Want to Foster" and a Foster Coordinator will reach out to you right away!  

We are also in need of people willing to do transports, usually from Winter Haven to St. Cloud or from north Orlando to St. Cloud a couple of times a month, during a weekday. Please email littledogrescue@gmail.com for more info on helping with Freedom Rides!

Save a Dog on Death Row!
They need YOUR help right now!!

Please help us save dogs on Death Row at local Animal Controls. These are dogs that can't be adopted out directly from Animal Control, mainly for medical reasons. When they can't be adopted, they need a rescue to save them when their time runs out.  These pups desperately need our help, we are their last hope!

 Florida Little Dog Rescue Group rescues dogs from all over the state of Florida, but our main focus is the Central Florida area.  Our volunteers live anywhere from Tallahassee to Tampa, but all of our dogs are fostered in the Orlando area.  We are 100% volunteer-based, which means no overhead or salary costs.  Your donation is used directly for dog care. We do not receive government funds. We are entirely supported by charitable donations.

We ensure that each dog is spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworms and other parasites, examined by a vet and treated for any known conditions prior to adoption.  All known medical information is fully disclosed to new families.  While awaiting adoption, the dogs live in foster homes that provide love, patience and TLC to the pups! A pup's stay in foster care could vary from several days to several weeks, depending upon the dog's conditions and needs.  Unlike shelter or kennel living, fostering the pups in a home environment allows us to personally evaluate each dog for behavior and temperament issues.  We are able to see how they interact and react to other animals and children, if they are house trained, like to go for walks, play ball, etc. and that makes it easier to know what type of home/family would be best suited for them!

Please note, we are not a shelter. We do not have a kennel or facility that you can visit and see all the dogs. Each dog is fostered in an individual home. We do rescue out of our private homes and in our spare time. So, you cannot come visit our dogs until you have gone through the application and interview process and we have contacted you about scheduling a visit.  We do not have set "hours" and we answer all calls and emails as quickly as we can!
