 $5 FRIDAY!!!! 

Hi Everyone! I'm Jackson. I'm one of the permanent residents at FLDR, as I have some medical issues and they take really good care of those for me. This is my thrid summer with FLDR, and summer is always a tough time around here and this year has been especially hard ~ I've seen the humans sadder than I can remember in a long time:( I figured I would try and rally the troops so to speak, and lend a helping paw. My paws are super tiny, but I figure if I can get some of you to lend your paws, we can make a difference. So, I *may* have appropriated Lindsay's wallet and commandeered $5 to get things started. I know she won't mind, and I will repay her in kisses and snuggles, plus, she really can't resist my puppy dog eyes;) So my goal is to have you guys join me and maybe bypass Starbucks today, and help me launch $5 Friday. Here's my plan - I'm gathering some goodies and will make a few prize packs. Everyone who donates $5 gets one entry, for every extra $5 you donate today, you get bonus entries! $10 will get you 3 entries, $15 will get you 5 entries, $20 will get you 7 and $25 will get you 10, and for every amount over $25 we will add bonus entries! One of the prize packs will include a Burt's Bees Grooming Supply Set for your pup, and we will have another prize pack with a set of Chi Grooming Brushes and I am working on a third prize pack now. This way the pups get some help, and your pup gets a chance at some cool pupstuff. All you have to do is go to www.floridalittledogrescue.com and click the donate link below my picture, and BAM! You are entered! We will run $5 Friday until 10pm tonight, and if I can teach the humans how to use FBLive we will do a live drawing then, otherwise we will just post a video:) Please make sure you like, share and even post pictures of your pups with their donation (we especially love seeing those)...so please click the donate button NOW and help me cheer up some humans, pay some medical bills, get some more lives saved and make this the best $5 Friday EVER!!! Thank you!!!
 
My name is Jackson, and I approved this message:)
 #OrlandoStrong 

Hey there everyone......just a quick note....the FLDR Pack has been deeply impacted by the recent tragic events in Orlando. It may take us a bit to get back to "normal" postings, and we may be reaching out for help. A lot of our volunteers and fosters have been dealing with losses, and we may need some exta help.

Last month, many of us attended the vigil in Orlando. As we looked out into the crowd, our hearts were filled with love ~ for the outpouring of support for OUR city ~ and sadness, as many, many of the faces in the crowd are ones we knew - friends, family, adopters, volunteers, supporters - people we care about feeling pain and anguish because of senseless hatred. However, we are ‪#‎orlandostrong‬ One Community. One Heart. One PULSE. Hate will not divide or conquer us, and our love will unite us.

Thank you so very much, for reading this, for following and supporting FLDR, and for everything each one of you has done for our pups.

 Meet Porter! 

 

Porter is a 5-6 year old male Maltese mix and he weighs about 5 pounds. Poor Porter arrived at animal control injured, and sat there for a week, a WEEK! with no pain meds or treatment. As soon as they would release him, we went and picked him up right away and took him to our vet. We discovered he needed surgery to fix his knee and scheduled it right away. He came through the surgery brilliantly, and is doing great! His foster mom says, "Porter is a playful and happy little boy. He is not a hyper boy just busy all day long. He likes chewing on toys, playing tug of war or wrestling around with the other foster pups. He enjoys being outside especially if he has another furied friend to play chase and explore, so a fenced yard is a must for him, as he loves to run to burn off that excess energy. If he doesn't have enough to keep him busy he will become destructive and find things to chew on, so he needs to have a human willing to play with him and keep him stimulated, and toys/chews are a must. He is housetrained but does still mark, but we are working on that. Porter is obedient, very smart and learns quickly. He prefers women but will be shy and frightened on first meeting and is frightened of men but will come around with patience and love. He likes a good hug with kisses every once in a while. He is a bit of yapper, as he wants to talk to you, so no apartments please. He can also be a little antagonistic around large dogs. He would do best in a home with another small furry friend, preferably female, and a fenced yard to run to work off his energy. He is frightened being on a leash but we are still working on it." Porter is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Lakeland area, and his adoption donation is $275.

 

Rylee was just adopted by a wonderful family who found it in their hearts to open their home to such an awesome rescue pup! Congratulations Rylee!

How many dogs have YOU helped us save?

July 21: This is not the way I was hoping we would end this week, or head into next week, as the requests from our local shelters keep coming in, emails packed full of faces needing help, subject lines of "Final Day" "Last Chance" "Code Red", or even just "Please, Just This One". Since July 4 we have taken in over 20 puppers, and in the two weeks before that it was 19, so that is 39 pups (plus a couple bunnies and guinea pigs) in the last 30 days. 39 lives saved, and truthfully, you don't want to know the number of gutwrenchings "no's" that we had to say:( This last month (five weeks) has been very very rough for Orlando, and it has been really, really hard for me to bring myself to write a post asking for financial support and donations when there are so many of our fellow Orlando residents needing help too with mounting medical bills, loss of work, funeral expenses....I just haven't wanted to have to ask anyone to choose to donate to the pups, or to humans, but my hesitancy hasn't made our dilemma any less, or adoptions increasing, or surrenders decreasing - July and August are always, always, our worst couple of months and this year is exactly the same, and we have reached the breaking point. I can't put off this post, or asking any longer. I have tried to ask for help just for a couple of specific pups, rather than detail the overwhelming need, hopeful that adoptions would pick up, or some grants would come through, but it just hasn't happened:( So, we have taken in all the pups we can as of yesterday, and simply can't take anymore until we can catch up. Since FLDR takes in 80% medical cases, meaning our pups need extra medical care and that's why they are in rescue, and those pups stay in foster care longer as they get better - summer and "surrender season" hits us extra hard. We really need your help. Every donation helps. If every single one of our fans just donated $3, we wouldn't have to ask for any help for an entire year! However, with FB wanting us to pay to boost posts, and then restricting how many people see our subsequent posts unless we pay for them too, less than 10% of our fans actually see each post, making it even harder to sustain ourselves through the summer. Please, if you can, lend a helping paw. Please. Any of the links will work, or even the one below our cover picture on Facebook. Your donation will be literally allowing us to catch up and resume saving lives. Lives that are counting on us, because there is no one else. Please like this post, even though its really not one to "like", but it does help us to reach more of our fans. Please also share, so that we reach more people, and more help for the pups. We will keep you updated on our progress. As always, we thank you so very very very much.

 
 
Thank you all for helping her really and truly become a "one in a million pup".
 

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!

 In Loving Memory 

In Loving Memory of Joyce Russell

She loved and lived for her family. She would love that she could "help" to save an unloved precious life, so her family has asked that in lieu of flowers for donations to be made to help save pups.

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!
