The Story

Happy Holidays! - Thank you to everyone who has donated so far, we are just past the halfway mark to our goal. Thanks to your support these animals who had nowhere else to turn were able to get a second chance and many of them will be spending the holidays in loving homes!!!

However, we still have a long ways to go. Many of these rescued dogs are available for adoption. If your thinking of adopting this holiday season, now is the perfect time to come to Little Shelter.

Please check back with this campaign as we will continue to post updates of rescue efforts and who is available for adoption. Thank you for your continued support in this great endeavor.


Around 6:00pm Saturday evening, November 18th, a very special flight arrived carrying 7 unusual passengers from Puerto Rico. In an effort to help with the current travesty in Puerto Rico, Little Shelter had flown 7 dogs to sanctuary where they will receive medical care and be given a second chance. It was a joyous moment as staff welcomed the new residents to Little Shelter.

The 7 dogs range in age from 3 months to 4 years old and are all happy dogs who are eager to play with staff members. With rescue efforts continuing over the next few months in hurricane devastated areas we are asking for donations to help these dogs and cats that have nowhere to go.

Over the past weekend an emergency transport arrived to Little Shelter with 29 dogs from Texas. These dogs were transported due to the need for space in over-inundated shelters still handling the thousands of displaced pets from the wake of hurricane destruction. The dogs arrived early Sunday morning where they were greeted by Little Shelter staff.


The dogs will be in quarantine for the next two weeks where they can relax after their trying ordeal and receive the best medical attention and individualized care that Little Shelter is known for. With more transports underway, Little Shelter is in need of your help! Your donations help cover the cost of transport, medical attention, food, treats and toys, beds and everything needed to prepare these dogs (and more) for loving homes.

Please donate today as we continue our relief efforts down south and beyond. Our friends need our help as more dogs and cats are brought to the shelters every day. Little Shelter is dedicated to helping animals in need and will continue transports over the next couple of months as devastated areas begin to rebuild and contain the situation.

In the wake of devastation caused by hurricane’s Havery, Irma, and Maria over the past few months, we have seen cities and suburbs flattened, lives destroyed and hundreds of thousands of animals displaced and abandoned. With local shelters running understaffed, over capacity and more animals arriving each day, Little Shelter is continuing our relief efforts to help the overwhelming amount of animals in need of placement.

As the last of our current hurricane Harvey dogs went up for adoption, a transport arrived to Little Shelter from Florida with dogs and kittens from hurricane affected areas. Due to the need for space in the local shelters, these animals were scheduled to be euthanized until Little Shelter stepped in. This is just one of a few transports we have in the works over the next couple of months to help our friends down south.

YOU can help, donate to Little Shelter’s youcaring campaign to help us care for these special animals. Your donations help us continue to schedule transports to rescue more dogs and cats from affected areas and to provide for the ones who have just arrived. Each of the animals that arrived will need medical care before being available for adoption, in addition to needing food/beds/toys/treats/ect.

We are asking for donations to help us cover the expenses as we continue our efforts of helping our friends in Texas, Florida and other hurricane affected areas.


When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, no one could have predicted the amount of destruction it would cause. Many cities in Texas were left completely underwater and in ruins. After the storm settled and rescue groups could get into the affected areas, a team of Little Shelter staff set off with relief supplies for dogs and cats affected by Hurricane Harvey. Little Shelter spent days of communicating back and forth with animal shelters and rescue teams coordinating rescue. Seven dogs were found in need of a safe haven to make room for more lives to be saved. Little Shelter immediately agreed to take the dogs and prepared one of our transport vans.
