From Nov. 6th to Nov. 12th, It's National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week!

The first full week of November is National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week. Little Shelter would like to thank all of our hard-working volunteers for the sacrifice and service they do at the shelter for the benefit of the animals. We would also like to thank all our donors and sponsors whose contributions keep the shelter running. Without you, we would not be able to carry out our mission, to help animals in need who have nowhere to go. 

Being that Little Shelter is donation based, our donors and sponsors keep the shelter running. The donations take care of everything from beds and food for the animals, to paying the heat and maintaining our rescue vehicles. Little Shelter extends beyond just local rescue; we run a number of programs to benefit the community. From our ASK program that provides pet food to families who are facing financial hardship, to education programs to teach children how to care for animals and service animals who visit senior facilities.

Little Shelter is more than just an animal shelter, it is a family and our donors and sponsors are part of that family, allowing us to continue the work we do to help others.

Our amazing volunteers are the back bone of Little Shelter. They come in to spend time with the dogs, taking them on extra walks, sometimes even bringing them treats of home cooked meals. They bring toys to the cats and spend hours socializing kittens or working with an adult cat to teach them to trust in humans again. Some of our volunteers are regular handymen who are always fixing things around the shelter, from painting to roofing, installing doors and fixing washers. No matter what the task, our volunteers are here to help and their dedication is what makes Little Shelter what is it.

 Last but not least, we would like to thank the staff of Little Shelter who arrive at the crack of dawn and leave in the late hours of the night. No matter what the weather they arrive to take care of the animals and work tirelessly to get them into loving permanent homes.

During National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week, we would like to see our Little Shelter family get involved to show thanks to those who do so much for the shelter!
