Trix was found wandering the streets of Long Island with a severe eye infection that left her mostly blind. When she was picked up as a stray, an emergency alert for placement was sent out due to her medical condition. That’s whenLittleShelter stepped in to save her.
Upon arriving at LittleShelter Trix's examination showed the infection in her eyes had reached a critical level and looked ready to rupture. It was clear she needed an emergency surgery to remove her eyes to prevent the infection from spreading.
Trix is currently recovering at LittleShelter with staff caring for her special needs. She's just one example of the dogs and cats who arrive here every day looking for a second chance.
While Trix is learning how to do things all over again, LittleShelter is stuck coming up with the expenses for her surgery. Your donation can help us to continue to do life saving surgeries for dogs and cats like Trix.
In late September, 6 tiny kittens made their way from North Carolina to LittleShelter following the devastation of Hurricane Florence. When the kittens first arrived they were very sick. They had upper respiratory infections and needed socialization. These little ones have spent the past couple of months receiving much TLC with some of LittleShelter’s finest foster families.
It’s now time for them to find their furever homes. Come down to LittleShelter this month and meet the Carolina kittens!

What an AWESOME start to 2019! Our little Coconut found the perfect home during January. Coconut arrived at LittleShelter almost a year ago as part of an emergency transport after Hurricane Harvey. Everyone thought he would be adopted right away, but as each of his friends from Texas got adopted, LittleShelter staff noticed he needed a littlehelp to stand out.
Coconut is a great lap dog with people he trusts, but has a hard time opening up to potential adopters. He quickly gets over anxious and doesn't show well. Staff and volunteers worked with Coconut to try and help him learn to relax and to build up his confidence.
As January was approaching, LittleShelter staff was trying to prepare something special for his 1st Anniversary at LittleShelter. That’s when the best anniversary gift of all happened – Renee walked in asking to meet Coconut. It was love at first sight and days before what would have been Coconut’s Anniversary at LittleShelter – he went off to his furever home. Renee has sent us updates about how well Coconut is doing and the photos show his transformation from a nervous shelter dog to a loving companion. Congratulations to Coconut!
Brynn loves to cuddle on the couch and lounge in pajamas all day. She's looking for a special someone who will take leisurely strolls through the park with her and play a game of catch. She enjoys snuggling in soft blankets and is willing to share her ice cream if you're willing to share your heart. Come meet her today at LittleShelter.
Zack was adopted out as kitten a few years ago but found himself back at LittleShelterwhen his owner moved into the in-law's house and poor Zack was not welcomed. In tears his owner brought Zack back to LittleShelter.
Now Zack is waiting for someone to adopt him. His only wish is to have a furever home that will actually be forever. He is a very social boy who loves to hang out with people and play with toys.
Between Christmas and New Year's Eve, LittleShelter had two amazing adoptions that really left the staff blown away.
First were our girls Serena and Venus, a bonded pair that had been at LittleShelter for over a year. Venus was always watching over Serena, but loved getting attention and was even featured on TV a couple of times. Serena preferred to sit back and let Venus take the limelight, but you could never have one without the other. Despite their celebrity status, the right home just hadn't been found. Then one day shortly before Christmas, the perfect family walked into LittleShelter looking for two dogs and fell in love with our girls. Serena and Venus celebrated Christmas in their new home and we couldn't be happier for them and their new family.
While Serena and Venus we're getting ready to journey to their new home, Lola also found her special someone! Lola, who LittleShelter took in when her family could no longer care for her, had been having a difficult time finding the right adopter.
After taking Lola to multiple events, creating online campaigns to spread her story, she was still waiting to find her family. Then right before New Year's Eve, a young couple walked into LittleShelter and fell in love with Lola! She spent New Year's Eve in her new home and her family has said that she is thriving in her new environment.
With such and awesome end to 2018, we can't wait to see what next year has in store for us!
