 URGENT!! Help the Pups! 

Friends.....In rescue, we see a lot, and I mean a lot. A lot of things we never want to see, a lot of things that hurt our hearts, leave imprints in our brain, and convince us that we have seen it all. Today, sadly, our intake team learned there was still more to see. FLDR mobilized to take in twenty terrier mix pups from a local animal control. Pups that were discovered when an eviction was being served - and in conditions so bad - the county literally called in a Hazmat tea...m to assist. A Hazmat team. Let that sink in a second. The pups are all in varying stages of medical distress, and needed immediate assistance. This shelter is currently without a vet due to scheduling, so we agreed to take all twenty puppers, issues unknown, with NOTHING done medically except a fecal exam and deworming - so that they could stand a chance at a good outcome. Normally our pups arrive with basic vaccines and a heartworm test from the shelter - these twenty didn't, as it was crucial to get them into care in an expedient time frame. The shelter has been amazing and the staff truly cares - which is why we know this case hurt them too. When the "owner" was contacted and begged to please come sign them over, she commented "they are still alive?" That is the shape they are in. I won't post the pictures here of all of the issues - but there are puppers with mammary tumors that are so big they have exploded and abcessed and are wide open and....gross. Let's just leave it at that. Jan and Debra went and picked everyone up today, and met Laurie and Doc at the vet clinic to get everyone in, settled, and a quick assessment. Tomorrow is an entire day of vetting - and we already know it isn't going to be an easy day - but the pups are worth it, so we go all in, and get them taken care of. Having to take them into care today without their initial vaccines and heartworm tests means our vet bill just went up $1000 right from the start. Not quite what we were planning for, but necessary to take care of them properly. We have handled many, many hoarding and mill cases, and yet these pups....there are not words. They need a chance. They deserve a chance to know a good life - they truly have lived through horrors. These are just some of their faces. Please, lend a helping paw towards their care. This time of year is very rough in rescue with a dramatic slowdown in donations, and we are barely getting by as it is. Please, please help us help them have a chance at a life they deserve - a chance to put the horrors behind them - to be healthy, and not covered in open sores, wounds and abcessed tumors. Please also react, share, comment as that helps with post visibility, allowing us a greater chance at getting assistance with their care. We will provide updates on they detailed exams tomorrow, but we are already realistically aware of the expenses involved, so please help. Thank you!

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!

Mugsy, a Yorkie/Chihuahua/Terrier mix
 
Mugsy is a 1-2 year old male  Yorkie/Chihuahua/Terrier mix and weighs about 7 pounds. He arrived in rescue after coming from a hoarding situation and has now learned what it's like to be loved by humans. It may take him a little time to warm up to you, but as soon as he trusts you, you’re his best friend. When I first started to foster him it took 3 days before he’d come near me, but with time and patience he finally decided to trust me. Mugsy quickly became my best pal but was shy around other people. But now he loves other people and just to be loved. He’s learned to love humans and play with toys. He now loves attention and likes to play with you. He also loves to snuggle and give kisses. Mugsy is not a fan of the leash and therefore needs a fenced yard. He is crate trained and housetraining is still a work in progress but he wants to please but most of all just wants to be loved. He has so much love to give and is the sweetest boy you can imagine!  Please open you heart to this sweet loving boy. Mugsy is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.

Nolan has found a forever home!

WeNeedYourHelpWednesday! Hello friends! Today we are taking in a BUNCH of new puppers (update this afternoon) and we are planning another trip to Panama City this weekend to take more supplies up to Dawn. While the news is no longer focusing on the recovery efforts, the need for assistance is still very high, and very real. MamaJan was able to chat with them just a bit last night - and the first thing they wanted to say was THANK YOU for everything you have helped us help them with so far - including helping them keep their two super senior pups - and taking Stella Rose and BG into FLDR. The updates we received were: Austin's foot is healing really well! He was super excited to be mobile thanks to the ortho boot! They have been able to move the camper to the backyard, providing them a little more security. They have a washing machine outside but they are able to do laundry with the generator. They have got all obstructing trees cut and out of way, but in the meantime have had 3 bad storm fronts come through, including one this week, just basically adding insult to injury. It's still raining in the house :( and the mold is getting worse. They put something new on the roof and yet its still leaking! FEMA is very slow to respond and process claims. Dawn's dad finally got a camper to stay in as well. There people still sleeping in tents everywhere, and trees still on many houses all around them. More stores are starting to open up, but supplies are scarce and quickly snatched up by contractors. They are still guarding their house since all their belongings are inside, and looting is still a large problem. They were VERY hesitant to let us know how we could help them, but MamaJan finally got a list from them - its pretty basic and I know we can come together and get it filled! We have updated our FLDR Amazon wish list not only with supplies needed for our new pups today, but with some of the items to help Dawn's family and pups out as well. One of the things they need most is astroturf, as the ground is still very muddy and debris filled, as well as two ex-pens to make an enclosed yard for the pups(we have the pens already donated!). There are a few items we did not include on the list on Amazon - and if you can donate them, we would be very appreciative! They can be dropped off in St. Cloud or Longwood before Friday, or ordered and shipped (PM for address) as long as they arrive by Friday -
Winter Rye Grass Seed (to help the yard)
Camping propane canisters
Vinegar
Soft Dog Food
Queen and Full size WARM blankets (its going down near freezing at night)

Our updated list is here: https://smile.amazon.com/…/ls/32T2PWOYWK20J/ref=cm_go_nav_hz please just make sure that items will arrive by Friday, as Laurie will be leaving to head up to the panhandle Saturday morning.

If you are unable to pick up or order any of the items, but still want to help, you can use the donation links here, and one of our FLDR team members will be able to pick up remaining items!

Thank you all SO much - I know we are asking you all for a lot today, but please, if you can help, we would be so thankful - getting help to Dawn, her pups and family, and getting this new group of pups into care is so critical. Thank you.

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 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!
