Before and After

FLDR IS TEN TODAY!!!! Ten years ago we decided we wanted to save the unsaved, the leftovers, the ones passed by, overlooked ~ our founders wanted to save some puppers, and not change the world, per se, but change THEIR world~ show them that humans were kind, that they could be healthy and pain free ~ and the joys of belly rubs, warm beds, cuddles on couches. It was big dream, an ambitious goal. We were told it wouldn't work. We were told we would be done, broken, within a year. We were laughed at. We came from different rescue backgrounds, different family and work dynamics, but we all believed the dogs came first - their needs came first - we would find dogs their humans, not find a human a dog. It hasn't been easy. Enough tears to flood a river. Sleepless nights. Long days, longer nights. Interrupted vacations, cancelled date nights. Doubt beyond doubt, second guessing that became third guessing. Heartbreak. So much heartbreak ~ and yet 3,650 days, 4,037 wet noses, 10 years. All worth it. SO worth it. Worth every tear, every late night, every heartbreak ~ your kind words and support on some of our darkest days made it worth it. Every pup saved made it worth it. Ten years. It's still sinking in, but 10 years! There are not enough words to express our gratitude to all of you that have joined our rag-tag little pack along the way - that have cried with us, shaken your heads in disbelief with us, cheered with us, and loved our rescued pups with us as your own.

We are ready to celebrate this milestone, so we are going to switch up our $5FriYay for May, and kickoff $10 for 10 years, a 10 day campaign with a goal to reach $10K. As we head into summer, donations slow down, adoptions slow down and surrenders to shelters increase. "Surrender season", and we all dread it. We want to celebrate 10 years of FLDR with 10s across the board, so we can save first, instead of worry about funds this surrender season:) It's a lofty goal, but hey - ten years ago we started out as a "lofty goal", yet here were are! So, 10/10/10/10 - perfects, just like we think every pupper we save is:) Over the next ten days we will feature some special "FLDR All-Stars", dogbassadors, if you will, with special prizes, Facebook lives, and questions you may have been wondering, like "why is shampoo never on FLDR's wishlist?!?!" will be answered! The next ten days will be a celebration of the past ten years and the next ten to come:) Most of you know Dos from the CDL (Duchess's Chihuahua Defense League, her fierce protectors) and Dos is ready to get this party started, maybe, IDK. (he is the KING of memes, that Dos!)

Just use any of the donation links, and join the 10/10/10/10 party. Every $10 and the pups add your name into the treat jar, and on Mother's Day (May 12th, 10 days from now!) we're going to have a Facebook Live party, with some very special guests. So, please, like, share, spread the word, woof it from the rooftops, TEN YEARS! Join the celebration and save some more lives, changing one pup's world at a time. TOGETHER, it's what WE do ~ that's FLDR. Thank you for being part of our pack!

Oh, and PS - MamaJan, you may wanna check your purse, just sayin...

Oliver, a Golden Doodle
Oliver is a 1 year old male Golden Doodle and he weighs about 60 pounds. He arrived in foster care when his previous family didn't take the time to properly train him and he became a handful and they could not be bothered anymore. Anyhow, he has settled into his foster home nicely, but will need a loving and patient home to continue to work with him.  His foster dad says, "Oliver is a big boy, but is very unsure of people when they approach him and may even growl and back up. But if you just let him come to you, and he will, he loves the attention and very quickly becomes your best friend. Once he accepts you he just wants to be loved and to get attention. Oliver listens well and knows sit and gives his paw. He’s playful and gets along with dogs of all sizes. He is crate trained and walks pretty well on a leash, but does pull at times. Oliver does well with his housetraining and if you ask if he wants to go out, he will.Oliver loves his fenced yard but can also be a bit of a digger at times if left unsupervised and he becomes bored.  You must be outside with him!  Oliver does shed (he is NOT hypoallergenic at all), but doesn’t mind being brushed. Olivers family will need to be patient with him and build his confidence with strangers, but he is a loyal and loving playful boy, and a quick and smart learner! He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped! Oliver is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $325.
How Many Have YOU Helped Save? 



Perla has found a forever home!


As 2019 is under way, FLDR wants to “go big so they go home” this year! We want 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 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!
