When LittleShelterstaff saw this cutelittle face staring up at them at a localshelter, we knew we could not leave without rescuing him.
Mr. Wister at only 5 years old had seen more trouble than most dogs do their entire lives. His coat was matted so bad that it wrapped around his paws and his fur was coated in filth. Worst of all, one of his back legs was horribly broken beyond the point of saving. Despite all of this, the little dog wagged his tail and went belly up at our feet for belly rubs.
Once Mr. Wister was safe at LittleShelter, he wasted no time making friends. You could see his eyes light up whenever he saw someone, as he eagerly hobbled over to get affection. After a thorough examination with LittleShelter’s Veterinarian it was decided that Mr. Wister’s leg would need to be amputated.
A week later and Mr. Wister was back up on his feet and cleaned up. You could tell he felt much better and his leg was started to heal from the surgery. While his wound will still need time to heal, LittleShelter staff are hopeful he will soon be ready for adoption. Please donate to help cover Mr. Wister’s surgery and aftercare so we can continue to help more dogs like him.

STORIES WITH HAPPY ENDINGS ARE THE BEST
Suzie Has Been Adopted!
Suzie the senior Chihuahua mix was rescued from a local municipal shelter where she was at risk of euthanasia due to life threatening cancer that needed immediate treatment. The sweet 13 year old was friendly with everyone and LittleShelter knew we had to try our best to save her. After an examination by LittleShelter’s Veterinarian it was determined that surgery was her only hope. Due to the size of the mass inside her, poor little Suzie had only a 40% chance of surviving the surgery.
The first couple of days after surgery were touch and go, it was obvious that she was in pain as she hardly ate and had difficulty going to the bathroom. LittleShelter staff monitored Suzie very closely, giving her lots of love and encouragement. A week later, she was up and eating and looking for affection from everyone she saw. We knew then that she would pull through.
While Suzie has a long road to recovery, in the beginning of October she was given the all clear to be made available for adoption. We’re happy to say she didn’t have to wait long until finding the perfect family and has been adopted into a loving home. This would not have been possible without your continued support.
Emily is a 7 year old Lab mix who was rescued from Puerto Rico through LittleShelter’s Passage to Freedom program. This loving dog likes to stick close to the people she bonds with and enjoys having another canine companion around. Emily is the perfect kind of dog if you’re looking for a cuddle buddy to watch movies with or to lay on your feet while you read a book. She’s content with staying at home and just having her own backyard to play in. If this girl sounds like the friend for you come see her today at LittleShelter.
When little Softee first arrived to LittleShelter she was small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. The poor kitten was found all alone mewing in a truck yard full of Mr. Softee trucks. Lucky for Softee, her rescue came just in the nick of time! She was rushed to LittleShelter where it was found that she had a temperature of 105 and was severely dehydrated. Two weeks later with around-the-clock care, Softee was on her way to being better. This loving and playful kitten is now available for adoption
