BIG THINGS HAPPEN AT LITTLE SHELTER
Little Shelter’s Passage To Freedom Program Continues Lifesaving Transport Efforts In Puerto Rico 

Much of Puerto Rico is still faced with devastation and destruction from last fall’s hurricane season. In a place where there's little resources for the stray dogs and cats who run the streets, the animals are the greatest victims during such disasters. In a continued effort to save lives, Little Shelter has been rescuing dogs and bringing them back to the safety of Huntington.

In a case like Ebony’s, it was the second chance that Ebony and her puppies desperately needed.They were going to be euthanized until Little Shelter stepped in. Mom was a young dog who was very friendly and her puppies were eager to play and give kisses. Within a few weeks, Ebony and her puppies were given a clean bill of health and adopted into loving homes.

Right now Little Shelter has just taken in four puppies that are only five months old from Puerto Rico. These youngsters are very sweet and will be ready to start obedience classes right away. We still have multiple transports scheduled to help animals in need in Puerto Rico. Please donate today to our transport efforts to help more dogs like Ebony and all the puppies.

STORIES WITH HAPPY ENDINGS ARE THE BEST
Nina’s story began back in November when she first arrived at Little Shelter as part of a NYC Mayor’s Alliance transport. We didn’t know what to expect when the van pulled up, all we knew was that her back legs were paralyzed and she needed help. Sitting in the shelter system Nina's future didn't look bright and Little Shelter had stepped in to save her. When she came off the transport she was very happy to meet everyone and wanted to explore her new surroundings.

Little Shelter knew we could give her tragic story a happy ending and went to work to see what we could do about her situation. After all sorts of tests, x-rays, an ultrasound and more, we learned that her injury was old and inoperable. Little Shelter did not loose hope, our amazing medical staff worked with Nina on a daily basis, moving her back legs and trying to get her to support her own weight. She was soon fitted for a custom-made wheel chair that allowed her to get around easily and over greater distances. Nina loved her new found mobility that gave her so much freedom. Now it was time to find her a home…

One morning as Little Shelter's staff had Nina in the adoption office, discussing a plan to get her story out to the public, a very special family came in. They had adopted from Little Shelter many times, including dogs with special needs. When they saw Nina running around in the office they fell in love and knew she belonged with them. We’re happy to announce that Nina has been adopted by an amazing family who loves her for who she is. Thank you to everyone who has donated to Nina’s care over the past couple of months and helped her overcome all obstacles.
