According to the Humane Society of United States Pet Overpopulation
Estimates, 3.4 MILLION cats and dogs are euthanized by shelters
Why do we do this?
Little Angels Rescue is committed to decreasing the number of pet
deaths each year. We are an all volunteer organization which is
composed of dedicated individuals making a difference by saving
How can we save more lives?
We can save more pet lives by increasing the number of people willing
to get involved. We need dedicate individuals who can open their
hearts and their homes to rescued Little Angels, either on a temporary
or permanent basis. Foster homes are especially needed in DeSoto,
Charlotte, Lee and Sarasota counties.
