FREEDOM RIDES! Just a FEW of the faces that left with us today! It has been a BUSY day on intake - and it isn't going to let up - we left with seven today, in addition to the four earlier this week, we have commitments to go back for 7 more by Monday, and 5 more at another shelter - all medically needy - three in the picture below are heartworm positive, one is so scared they needed to sedate him just for a heartworm test at the shelter, and one just shakes:( The two puppies you don't see are super tiny. We have a full day of vetting ahead of us tomorrow, and a super busy next few days. I will just be as quick and blunt as possible - we will need help. The vet bills are quickly adding up, and we need helping paws. Our generous friend agreed to match all donations through the weekend, up to $5000. That would be an amazing relief with all of the pups coming in with medical issues. If you can,click on any of the links, and your donation will be matched. We also have a really cool Disney backpack that we will post pictures of tomorrow that we will draw a name for next Friday, all you have to do is donate to help the pups! Please:) Please also like, share, spread the word on your socials.
PS - The pups pictured ALL need vetting, and are not available for adoption inquiries at this time. We have lots of pups ready NOW on the adoptable dogs page of our website, and each one adopted means another foster space opens up:) Thank you for your understanding!
Note: The picture is NOT how the carriers travelled, just how we positioned them so you could see as many faces as possible. Bothersome people would think we would drive with them that way, but yeah, we apparently have to clarify :/
Save a Dog on Death Row!
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!
