 RescueFest 2015! 

Come join us Saturday, January 24th for the biggest Paw-ty of the year! RescueFest at Lake Lily Park in Maitland, Florida!  We will have adoptable pups looking for their forever families, but please apply in advance online, as you will need to be pre-approved to adopt, and not all of our adoptable pups will be in attendance:) Also, the pups are adoptable PRIOR to RescueFest (we don't hold them for the event), so if you see one on the Adoptable Dogs page that you love, apply RIGHT AWAY:)  We will also have a few surprise guests, and some of our Puppy Bowl XI stars to give pawtographs!  Don't miss it, 10-4, see you there!!!

 Meet Chester! 

 

Chester is a 3-4 year old male Chihuahua and he weighs about 9 pounds. He came into rescue after being hit by a car and taken to animal control. His back leg was pretty mangled and had exposed bone. We rushed him right to our vet who amputated the leg, and within a few days, Chester wa up and zooming around like a happy pup again! His foster mom says, "Chester is a love bug! He is always a happy boy!! He has such a great temperament, and is a great eater too. He loves his stuffed toys/animals - we have a large toy box of stuffed animals and he brings them out one by one and surrounds himself with them on his pillow. He is working on housetraining still, but is doing much better and a schedule really helps. We have had him on a leash a few times and he did great, although we are mainly out in the fenced yard. He is a little possessive of us (typical Chi, LOL!) but he is sweet enough to overcome that as he becomes more secure." Chester is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $250.

Shiloh was just adopted by an amazing family who had been looking for a precious pup just like him! Congratulations Shiloh on your happy ending/new beginning!

 All About Ace.... 

Hi there...have a minute? I won't be long, I promise. My name is Ace. At least that is what they tell me now, and I kinda like it. Flashy, right? Definitely an ego booster, and for a teensy little pup like me, I can use all the boosting I can get. I'm not the youngest around, about 10 now, but with a long life left ahead of me. I lived with a family for a long time, but I was more of a toy for them than anything, and they played with me like it, and I'm only 5 pounds, so I'm not really "sturdy" if you know what I mean. That dislocated my hip a while back, and it's been painful ever since. Sometimes it hurts so bad I would get a little cranky. Anyhow, because I was cranky, my family left me at a scary place with a lot of other animals, in a cold cage, alone. I mean the people were nice to me, but it was still super scary for me, so I just hid and shook. Then, this really nice lady came and told me I was going to rescue and scooped me up and said I was going on a freedom ride! I was so happy, but man, my hip hurt, and I was cranky. I try really hard not to be, but the pain....anyhow, the super nice people at FLDR got me to a groomer to get clean, and man, did that feel soooo good. My next stop was the vet today and the news was good, sorta. Turns out my hip is dislocated, pretty bad, and has been for a very long time (I tried to tell them that, but all that came out was Woof, Woof), BUT the nice vet said he could fix me all up with an FHO surgery to put my hip back in place, and take away all the pain! I wanted to just jump around for joy, but I can't...yet. The people at FLDR said they can't wait to get me all fixed up, but that we may need some helping paws to "get it done". Is that you? I'm kinda hoping they won't be mad that I snuck on the computer to post this if it helps with donations to my surgery. I am so excited at the thought of feeling pain-free again, and if you could help make it happen, all 5 pounds of me would be sooooo thankful. Thank you so much for reading my story. -Love, Ace

It's thanks to YOUR help and donations that we can do what we do, and we are so thankful for YOU!

Jan 15th: Hey everyone, it's me, Ace.  My foster mom is on the phone with the vet about Star, one of our new puppers at FLDR, so I took this opportunity to jump online and let you all know how I am doing!  I have had my FHO surgery, and am recovering in a foster home on a comfy bed with a two-legged foster brother who pretty much waits on me hand and paw.  He calls me his "little buddy", and that makes my heart happy!  I have had some really good pain meds to help me start recovery, and I haven't been cranky at all. I feel pretty good, and hope to be walking "normal" again soon.  My favorite thing is snuggling though, so I am not in too huge of a rush right now, I'm just happy the pain is gone!  I've been getting great food thanks to something called the Amazon Smile Wishlist, so thanks for sending that, and this super comfy bed, which I thought helped me take a great selfie, right? Anyhow, I don't have long, and it sounds like you guys may be hearing about Star later today, that call didn't sound so great:( But before I go, I wanted to thank everyone that donated towards my surgery, it was pretty expensive, but they were also able to clean my teeth and take out the rotten ones, so I should be set for quite a while now!  I was able to raise just over half of my surgery costs on my last posting (total was $1341, and $705 in donations came in) so if you could please consider chipping in to help cover the rest, that would be great, because it sounds like Star and a couple others may need some help too:)
 

Welcome to Florida Little Dog Rescue Group!

Florida Little Dog Rescue rehabilitates unwanted, abused and abandoned little dogs and places them in loving and responsible homes to live out their lives as cherished family members.  We would love for you to join us by adopting a dog, volunteering as a foster home or donating money to help save the dogs.  We are a 501(c)3 Charitable Organization, and all donations to FLDRG are tax deductible!

Save a Dog on Death Row!
Many 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 almost 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!
