Stories With Happy Endings Are The Best...
Charlie Has Been Adopted!
We are happy to announce that Charlie the senior Great Pyrenees has been adopted!

When Charlie first arrived to Little Shelter, he was in bad shape. His coat was covered in filth, his claws had over grown and he had a large growth on his back leg. Little Shelter's veterinary staff set to work right away to get him back on his feet! After a couple of weeks of treatment Charlie made a full recovery and was ready to find the perfect family to spend the rest of his golden years with. Little Shelter's adoption staff set to work campaigning to find him the perfect home - and it didn't take long! After only a week he found his furever home and we are so happy for him. Congratulations Charlie.
Frosty Has Found His Furever Home!

Frosty was originally discovered by a Little Shelter staff member who found him in a Starbucks parking lot looking for food. He came right up to her mewing for attention and showed to be very friendly. However, it was also obvious that he was in bad shape. He was taken to Little Shelter where he could be treated and cared for. Upon examination Frosty had an upper respiratory infection and was suffering from dehydration. A few weeks of medication, hydration treatments and food led to a full recovery. The whole time he was being treated he sought affection from all his handlers.

Once he was feeling better Frosty was allowed to roam Little Shelter's cage free cattery where he made many friends of both cats and visitors. No surprise it didn't take long for him to find a family just for him! He has settled into his new home and loves to snuggle with his family. Congratulations Frosty!

Nina's Incredible Journey - A New Beginning

Back in January we introduced you to Nina, our partly paralyzed rescue. We are happy to announce that after months of daily therapy and exercise she has been regaining some use of her back legs. Recently she was even fitted for a wheel cart that will allow her to walk for longer periods as she continues to strengthen her back legs.

Click on the video image to watch her rescue and transformation. Her courage is an inspiration for those around her at Little Shelter. She has come so far in the few months she's been here but still has a long way to go.

Little Shelter Opportunities:

We provide a cage, bedding, food, toys, litter pan and anything else they need - our fosters provide the love, fun and interaction that the kittens need to prepare them for loving homes. Fostering is a volunteer position and a truly rewarding experience.
