CONGRATULATIONS PICKLE!!!! Pickle won MVP for Puppy Bowl XIX!!! We are so so proud of our little pomeranian mix who played his heart out at Puppy Bowl and is a stellar example of just how awesome rescue pups are!!!
A huge thanks to Animal Planet for Puppy Bowl and showcasing all rescue/shelter pups! We also need to thank all of our fosters and team at FLDR who make our participation possible, as well as our friends at A New Beginning Pet Rescue, specifically Debbie, for bringing Pickle and his litter to our attention when they were in need of rescue, and arranging their intake for FLDR:) And course, a ginormous thanks to Pickle's adoptive dads, who have supported him and Team FLDR on this exciting journey!! Team work is what makes the dream work - and our dream is for all pups to have warm beds and loving homes - and if we keep working together, hopefully that will one day be a reality!
If you would like to help our team work towards that dream, 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!

Save a Dog on Death Row!
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!
