Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from

Florida Little Dog Rescue!!!

As 2022 comes to a close we wanted to wish all of our friends, family and supporters a Happy Holiday Season and best wishes for an amazing 2023!  2022 has been quite a busy year for us at FLDR, and we are anticipating being just as busy, if not busier, in 2023.

As we celebrated thirteen years of Florida Little Dog Rescue, we were very excited to have added another 279 rescues to our pack in 2022, bringing the total to 4769, but the year isn’t even quite over yet! We have a few more pups that joined us today, with more still coming in during the last few days of 2022.

Rescue never gets a vacation, but that’s ok, the puppers are worth it, every second, every day, every month, all year!  Most of our puppers are seniors and/or severely medically or behaviorally challenged pups, where FLDR was their only chance for a happy ending.  While our intake team would love to be “unemployed” in the new year, we recognize that is not likely, and more pups will need our help to find loving homes like yours!  Our photo collage features just a few of the pups that FLDR has been able to save this year, including Dillon who was so matted, couldn’t tell head from tail; Manny who our vet said he’s “never seen a bladder stone that big” (he even sent it off to the UF Vet School!); Asher who survived more then we will ever know & now just craves love; Tank, who was abandoned in a drainage canal and is sometimes still scared of his own shadow, but now wants love; Shelby, thrown from a balcony at such a young age, and had to loose an eye, but is now thriving, loved and spoiled; All the chihuahua mixes who went from living in a U-haul - old ones, pregnant ones, puppies, scared to all thriving now; Lark, who was literally starving to death and aspirated on her own gagging causing pneumonia and needing emergency hospitalization - who is now doing so well in foster care and re-learning how to swallow; Louie, abandoned at an emergency clinic after having his leg broken; and of course, Timmy. Oh Timmy - our little liver shunt puppy who has fought through so many obstacles to live and is just now, in time for 2023, finally HEALTHY and ready to soon start searching for a forever family to call his own!! And there *may* be a couple of hedgehogs identifying as dogs as well….what can we say? It’s been a very *interesting* and BUSY year.   AND - we have some exciting news coming in January as well!

Please, as you consider your end-of-year giving, please remember that all donations to Florida Little Dog Rescue are tax-deductible as we are a fully certified and registered 501(c)3.  Many companies, such as Disney, Boeing, Salesforce and Bank of America just to name a few, offer corporate matching funds as well!  As an added bonus, any donations made before midnight on 12/31 will be matched by a very generous supporter, up to $10,000!! Just use any of the links on our website, www.floridalittledogrescue.com to donate and your contribution will be automatically added towards the matching funds!

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!

Please also know just how much our foster parents LOVE receiving updates and pictures of their former foster pups ~ there is nothing quite as encouraging on a “down” day as being able to look at one of your former pups that arrived broken, scared and afraid to love now living the “great life” as a cherished family member!!!

Thank you all so very much for supporting rescue, our volunteers and pups at Florida Little Dog Rescue!!

Much Love and Many Wishes for an INCREDIBLE 2023,

All the Puppers of FLDR and the rest of their “staff” at Florida Little Dog Rescue!

Roger, a Dschshund
 
Meet Roger! Roger is a 2 year old male Dachshund and he weighs about 12 pounds. He arrived in foster care when his previous family could no longer care for him. He is ready to find a forever family to call his own and he would like to introduce himself: Hi! My name is Roger and I'm in need of a lap to curl up in! I'm a love bug! I take sleeping very seriously, so my owner must be willing to let me cuddle up against them under the blankets at night. And they absolutely must let me wake them up in the morning with kisses. If my new human wants to carry me around the house like a baby, I'd be perfectly happy with that. My favorite spot to nap is on my foster mom's shoulder.  I eat two meals a day and insist on several treats throughout the day. My foster mom thinks she can outsmart me with treats sealed inside a Kong with peanut butter, but I find them every time! I love to play and have found that no toy is indestructible, just wait and see! If you like snow, I can make that happen for you. My foster mom is working on my manners. She says that not everyone likes to be made aware of my presence with a bark!  His foster mom says, "Roger would likely do best with a female owner. He is skittish around everyone he meets, but especially men. He would do great with a yard and really enjoys chasing older kids around who are kicking balls. He's been around an older dog who just ignored him. Roger is a barker, so a home with shared walls would not be ideal for him. He is extremely smart, loves pup-cups from Starbucks and Jeremiah's, is getting used to his car seat and loves a good walk. Roger is crate trained and will run to the crate when he thinks he's getting a treat. I haven't left him in the crate for more than 4 hours at a time, so you'll have to test the waters with how long he can go. Currently, Roger gets walked every couple hours because I work from home. Someone at home full time seems to be ideal for Roger. If this is you, Roger would love to meet you!" He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! Roger is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $400.

FLDR wants 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 littledogrescue@gmail.com for more info on helping with Freedom Rides!

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!
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!
