  • 1. Wonderful Loving Environment

    by: Molemi

    We adopted our Puppy Maggie from Little Shelter just a couple of weeks ago. The staff made the whole experience just wonderful. My girls will always fondly remember the day they found their puppy and got to bring her home.\r\n\r\nMy husband and I are already talking about going back there when our children are older to adopt an adult dog. \r\n\r\nI have also already recommended them to several friends and family! \r\n\r\nI honestly couldn't think of a more deserving place to receive your generous gift of a shelter makeover!\r\n


    Each staff member is even nicer and more knowledgable than the last.


    Facility could us an update- clean and well maintained- just in need of a "face lift"

    This is a great place. The animals are loved and cared for and it's wonderful to see. It's so important that there are shelters like these.

    Little Shelter is a great organization. They are a no-kill shelter and take very good care of the animals there. I wish they had more property so they could take in even more animals.


    Great organization, really cares for the animals


    Wish it had more property

  • 4. Little ShelterAdoption Center

    by: candleking87

    After raising two kids and not having a dog since I was a teenager, our family decided to adopt a dog that needed a home. We received an email and picture of a cutie with an eye injury that just pulled our heartstrings. We couldln't meet him until he was well on his way to being healed. And when that day finally came, after many calls and emails, we got to meet and eventually adopt Guiness, our third child. We couldn't believe how thorough Little Shelter was with the process, so they could be sure this young pug was getting a good home. We got to walk him and play with him and take a day or so to make sure he was the one for us, as the shelter did to make sure we were the home for him. The staff all seemed to know every dog/animal there. Volunteers come and walk the dogs and its like they love being there because its so much like a home to them. I reccomend this shelter to everyone I know when they want to adopt. And everyone has been happy. Even after the adoption with helpful hints to help the transition to a new home go well. We couldn't believe someone would give up this beautiful dog and best friend. I'm grateful that Little shelter was able to take him in when he was injured or we never would have had the opportunity to love and be loved by this wonderful dog.


    Actually care who gets to adopt their animals



  • 5. A Wonderful Shelter

    by: cambiatagn

    My partner and I adopted my two cats, Tess and Bart, from Little Shelter on January 2, 2005. I had previously donated some items there after the death of my previous cat, Pan.\n\nMy partner and I were both really impressed by the physical setup of the cattery - cats weren't caged unless they had to be for some reason, but, rather, were in rooms shared rooms with plenty of beds and cat trees. When my partner wandered into the laundry room, there were even cats happily sleeping on piles of towels in there!\n\nAlso impressive was the obvious dedication and affection of the staff and volunteers.\n\nThe first night at our home was actually very hard for the cats - it seemed like they really missed the companionship of their "roommates," and, of course, tehy didn;t undertsand why they had been taken to this new place (after having been brought there from someone's backyard initially.\n\nA staff member called the next day to see how things were going. I told her I was afraid I'd made a terrible mistake - not because I didn't love an want them, but because they seemed so unhappy. She was very reassuring and patient and "talked me down" from my anxiety and despair (due partly to a fairly sleepless night of worrying and staying with the cats in the living room and hearing them cry).\n\nWell, here we are in 2008, and they are as happy as can be - Lord and lady of the apartment, with beds in every window (plus hte biggest cat bed - the one in the bedroom that they grudgingly share with us), a fountain (they had one at the Shelter, how can I not have one here?), and two very loving companions.\n\nThe work Little Shelter does is AMAZING, and I have been sponsoring a cat there since shortly after the adoptions, in memory of Pan and her predecessor Groucho, who died of cancer after a valiant 5-year struggle\n\nI strongly recommend that anyone on LI who is looking for animal companionship go to Little Shelter.


    An Environment of Love and Comfort
