Did you know? Roughly 1,835 dogs will be put to sleep today, simply because shelters are too full and the dogs have nowhere to go.

When we started our rescue 10 years ago, we realized a lot of dogs were being dumped in shelters simply because the humans had little knowledge of dog behavior or WHY their dogs were showing unwanted behaviors. Most people don’t realize that they have the power to become a confident pack leader, and fix those unwanted behaviors instead of giving up on the dog. One of the main ways we educate our community on being a strong pack leader is with proper dog walking and making sure that dogs are walked twice a day.

Here at The Little Red Dog, our mission is to save as many dogs as we can from high-kill shelters AND to teach our community about dog behavior to prevent dogs from going to shelters in the first place.

It all starts with the walk. So during March 13-20th, we’re walking to save lives.

Our latest mission, The Red Dog Dash, is a 7-day walk-your-dog-a-thon encouraging people to walk their dogs and save lives while doing it!

We are a foster-based, 501(c)(3) dog rescue––100% of your support goes back to saving lives. Your gift will cover microchips, vaccinations, spays, neuters, urgent medical care, transportation, food, supplies, and more.

On average, it costs TLRD about $700 to save a healthy dog’s life. We can’t save the next dog without enough funding and a foster home.

Thank you for supporting us, we truly can’t do it without YOU.

We are on a Mission from Dog!
