Small Paws Rescue, Furkids Animal Rescue & Shelters and the Florida Little Dog Rescue are some charity organizations in the United States that rescue small dog breeds. These nonprofit organizations are dedicated to rescuing abandoned, injured, sick and homeless small dog breeds and putting them in loving homes.
Small Paws Rescue Inc. is one of the largest breed rescues in the United States. Primarily a Bichon Frise rescue group, the group has rescued 10,000 Bichons in the country in the past 16 years. Small Paws Rescue posts adoptable pets on Petfinder.com and AdoptaPet.com. The sites provide information about the adoptable dogs as well as their current Small Paws Rescue chapter locations.
Furkids Animal Rescue & Shelters is the largest rescue and no-kill organization in Georgia. The Furkids shelter is located at the Sandy Springs PETCO, though it also has a main shelter in Alpharetta, Georgia. The organization rescues all small dog breeds, including mixed medium- and small-breed types. Information about adoptable dogs, such as breed, history and current location, are provided on the Furkids website, Furkids.org.
The Florida Little Dog Rescue is another large rescue charity organization that mainly serves the Central Florida area. Unlike other rescue groups, the FLDR is a 100-percent volunteer-based group and does not have a shelter or a facility. Interested adopters should submit and undergo a mandatory application process before the group allows the adopter to see or visit a dog. All information about the adoptable dogs can be found on the FLDR website, FloridaLittleDogRescue.com.
