Before and After
 $2 Tuesday Inspiration

Many of you will remember last year we got this amazing card in the mail from Emily, who was 9. Emily isn't a child of one of our volunteers or anything, just an amazing young girl with a HUGE heart! We tried to get a great picture, but the text reads: "Dear Dog Rescuers, I am Emily, a 9 year old from Orlando, FL. I just wanted to say Thank You for saving these doggys. Maybe I can be one of you when I grow up. Oh, and I thought this would help a little. From, Emily." Along with the card were two neatly folded $1 bills.

Going to be honest, we all ugly cried when reading this, as it had been a very rough couple of months with all of the hoarding case dogs, puppies, and "normal" rescue dogs, that some of us were pretty close to breaking. Then this amazing card from a 9 year old who sees the good in the world and wants to help arrives, and we all are reminded we are making a difference, even on the days when we feel like it is fighting a losing battle. It was right as Covid was starting to appear, and within a month, we were all on "pause", with events and fundraisers grinding to a halt, but pups still needing help. It was really hard for us to ask for help and donations, as so many people were going through very difficult times, on so many levels. Through it all, Emily would still send us little projects she made for the pups and to promote rescue. She also realized the pups would still need help, so she took the initiative and Emily posted on Nextdoor, went to local restaurants & stores & hung up flyers at local stores, and knocked on neighbors doors (safely!) asking if they would help the pups needing rescue. Woofgang was also very kind and donated a huge box of samples to her. She did all of this just because she love dogs, and frankly, is a really good human with some awesome parents! She's 10 now, and still helping the pups, with this most recent car full of donations she dropped off to our fosters. She's honestly quite an inspiration to all of us at FLDR:)

So, this Tuesday, as we are facing another rough week, with a BUNCH of new pups needing our help, we have a challenge for all of you! In honor of Emily's amazing effort, will you also donate $2 to help the pups? We are going to call it the $2Tuesday Challenge, because $2 really does make a difference, as it adds up! Honestly, if every single one of our 53K+ fans donated just $2, we would not have to fundraise for almost a year - so it DOES make a difference. What we each do makes a difference, and no effort is too small or not helpful! All you have to do is go to, click on the donation link, and Bam! pups are helped!! We will also pick a few random, lucky challenge-accepters to win one of the beautiful jewelry pieces that were donated to FLDR by Fundraising with a Cause. It's a super easy win-win-win way to do good and feel good this Tuesday! Please also like, share, react - as that helps spread the word - and for more people to see that everyone can make a difference, sometimes we just need an amazing 9 (now 10) year old to remind us of that!

Diana, a Biewer Terrier
Meet Diana!  Diana is a 9 month old female Biewer Terrier (Biewer Yorkie) and she weighs about 7 pounds. She should stay under 12 pounds full grown, but we can not promise that. Diana arrived in rescue when her previous family became overwhelmed with too many pups and could not care for them all. She has settled into foster care nicely, and would like to introduce herself: Let me introduce myself! I’m Diana. I am still a puppy and I do puppy things; I am pure puppy at this point in my life. I will need a patient family willing to help me learn all why proper life skills.  My foster Mom says I’m pretty good at the puppy pad thing, even though I often step outside and zip back inside to ‘do my business’ on the puppy pad instead of the grass in the backyard. I don’t know how I’d be around older kids or cats, I’ve not been around them, but I know little kiddos and I would NOT be ok together...they are scary.  I have been around older dogs and I like to zoom around them and all around annoy them, so younger fur friends only please.  Now my foster mom would like to say a few things. Foster Mom say, "Diana is a gem! She is not quite 100 % housetrained and will need work with many things as she grows up.  She can learn a lot, if you have the patience and time to teach her. Diana does not like to be brushed, but she will need a regular regimen of brushing and grooming to maintain her beautiful coat. She is a lovable pup, she loves to snuggle right up to your face, anticipating kisses – she loves getting kisses! Diana literally pounces at the opportunity to get your attention.  She has been given free reign at her foster home and is familiar with being penned not crated. She loves treats, will play with toys, even more so if another pup is around to play with. She is not one for the big bed, she seems to prefer a nice comfy bed on the floor with some of her toys. As much as Diana appreciates a good soft squeaky toy, nothing compares to nibbling on your fingers, that’s a favorite! Toys can be dangled in front of her and she will still prefer the fingers. No little ones for her. Once introduced to other pups, Diana has found her voice.  She would not be a good choice for a shared wall situation. This pup has huge potential if you have the time to devote to her training.  She is young and trainable. She is not a pup for a first time adopter, she would do best with someone familiar with Yorkies and puppy training.  She deserves someone who will make that effort. A fenced back yard would be ideal for Diana as she loves to get her zoomies in because she has a lot of puppy energy.  Inside, if she is not in your lap, she is content to be by your feet on the floor.  Diana has a sweet disposition. She is good in the car, on a harness and is great with people, cautious with new places." Diana is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and microchipped. She is being fostered in the Orlando area and her adoption donation is $425.

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!
