Thank you for visiting us!  Little Dog Lifeboat, Inc. (LDL) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that rescues rehabilitates and re-homes abused, unwanted, or abandoned animals.

Little Dog Lifeboat was founded to provide  comfort and medical care to small dogs who fall outside the parameters of need that  most rescue groups and shelters can provide. Most of our dogs are "Over and Under TEN" which means they are likely to be OVER ten years old and UNDER ten pounds.  That does not mean, however, that we don't have some younger dogs looking for homes as well. Not all our dogs are pictured online so please email us to let us know your interests.

We specialize in physical, social, and emotional rehabilitation of our rescues. Some dogs are suitable for adoption but some dogs are here for hospice care, living their lives in our cozy home with "accident" proof sofas and people to love and attend to them.  


All animals are examined, vaccinated, spayed or neutered,  and receive any and all medical treatment before being placed in carefully screened forever homes. Dogs in our Hospice Program receive ongoing medical care for the rest of their lives.


Little Dog Lifeboat  only euthanizes in cases of irremediable suffering or vicious and dangerous animals.
