BENEFITING: HOUSE OF LITTLE DOGS INC
House of Little Dogs is a 501 © 3 non profit corporation located in Fayetteville, AR. They are an all breed rescue, specializing in rescuing small dogs with behavioral and medical issues from local animal shelters. They sometimes take in owner surrenders and dogs from other rescues if the need arises. House of Little Dogs does not have a facility, so they are completely foster based. They provide medical care, comfort, love, and a safe haven for dogs in need. Upon their rescue, all animals are vetted by trained and excellent DVM’s. Those with minor and treatable medical needs and disabilities are placed in the loving care of fosters until they are adopted. The more serious medically challenged rescues are placed in a loving hospice/long term foster care or are given a place in the HLD motherhouse for as long as needed. House of Little Dogs relies solely on public donations. No amount is too small and all donations benefit the health and welfare of abused and abandoned animals and are tax deductible.
March has been a particularly expensive month for House of Little Dogs. They have rescued eleven dogs this month, most of which needed extensive vet care. Padme, Periwinkle, Smitty, Blossom, Hansel, Gretel, Tusk, Pogo, Faith, Benji, and McDuff were all blessed with now being under HLD’s care. On top of the eleven dogs they rescued this month, are the dogs that are currently still under their care and in foster homes rescued in the previous few months. Rusty, Dusty, Pompey, Fig, Miriam, Jiggles, and Bizy.
Frank and Denise are the best people that I know. They pour everything they have into these little dogs and ask for nothing in return. They give and they give and they don’t even ask for adoption fees. This month alone their veterinary expenses have included multiple spay surgeries, multiple neuters, several extensive dentals with a large number of extractions, raw food costs for dogs that come into rescue severely emaciated, tumor removals, baths and groomings, boarding for dogs that haven’t yet been placed in foster care, blood work on nearly every dog, an emergency visit for a rescue that was seizing, x rays for multiple dogs, and extensive veterinary care and medications for Faith, one of the 300 dogs pulled from the hoarding situation in Madison County this month. That doesn’t even include all the heartworm prevention, flea and tick prevention that is given each month, nor the routine vaccinations and microchips that are given. We know how expensive it can be properly vet one dog with medical issues, so you can imagine the size of the bill this month.
That being said, I’d love to raise as much money as possible for them to give them a head start on the veterinary bill this month. If you find it in your heart to donate, please do so! It will be put to the best use and you will have a part in helping these precious little dogs start a new life! No amount is too small and all donations with be appreciated! I don’t know of a more deserving group of people or a more deserving cause. Thank you for your time and consideration.
