Little Shelter's Adoption Of The Month: Mavis!
When Mavis first arrived to Little Shelter she was in bad shape. She had suffered an accident that resulted in multiple bone fractures. To heal, she needed to be in a full chest cast and kept on complete cage rest. However, she is a very strong spirited dog and always seemed to be happy and eager to meet people as they came through the kennels. All the staff at Little Shelter that spent time with Mavis fell in love with her and they decorated her cast to be bright and happy. Most people who passed through the kennels thought the cute little dog was wearing a sweater! After 2 months of cage rest this fluffy girl was fully healed and able to have her cast removed. This also meant she was now ready to find a home of her own. In less than a week of being available she was adopted into a loving family with a furry sibling to play with. Little Shelter was there for her when she was at her most dire time of need and helped her get the happy ending she deserved.

Little Shelter's Passage To Freedom Program Rescues 10 Dogs From
Korean Meat Trade
Little Shelter's Passage To Freedom Program has just rescued 10 dogs who faced certain death in Korea. The dogs had been raised for food in the Korean Meat Trade and were to be brought for slaughter when a local rescue group, Free Korean Dogs, intervened. While these dogs had escaped their cruel fate, the relief was only temporary as they still needed a safe place to go. Little Shelter stepped in to give them the safety they needed and a chance at a home. After a long and tempestuous journey, the dogs finally arrived to safety on Monday, February 27th. The Korean dogs are between 4-15lbs and range in age from 9 months old to 3 years old. As part of the shelters protocol the dogs have been kept quarantined for two weeks in Little Shelter's new ISO room where they have had time to settle down and become familiar with the staff. Some of the dogs will be available for adoption this Saturday, March 16th.
Jackie Sharlup, owner of Tula Kitchen, will be hosting her 9th annual lunch-in fundraiser event to benefit the animals of Little Shelter. This fun event will be held this Sunday, March 19th from Noon to 3pm and will offer Tula Kitchen's famous hours d'oeuvers as well as a cash bar and a live band. We are excited to announce that this year for the first time Tula Kitchen will have their full kitchen open during the event. While we encourage everyone to enjoy the hours d'oeuvers that will be passed around, entrées can be ordered for your enjoyment. (Not included in ticket price) Little Shelter will be bringing some of their adoptable dogs for a meet and greet outside with potential adopters. There will also be one of Little Shelter's famous Chinese Auctions towards the end of the event where attendees will have a chance to win some amazing prizes including a chance to win a Mercedes-Benz raffle ticket. Tickets for this fun filled event are $30 each. All proceeds go directly to the continued care of the animals at Little Shelter Animal Rescue.
