A Little Bit About Us
Sandy Calverley has been rescuing dogs since 1999. Most of this time has been rehoming the Shih Tzu breed. There are a lot of small dogs that for some reason or another cannot stay in their home. This is why she has expanded the rescue to help ALL small dog breeds.

There are some really wonderful foster parents working with the rescue. These foster parents make us able to help more than one dog at a time that may otherwise have its life ended at a young age for want of a home. We are always looking for more foster homes to help these precious babies.

Between work and a hectic family life there are still many ways people can help save a little one. These ways would fit into the busy lifestyle that most people have. Sandy can tell you more about the other ways you could help Rapids Little Dog Rescue. It can just be photographing the dogs for the website or something as simple as keeping your ears open and mentioning rescue when talking with people that are looking for a dog.

Some dogs come to rescue needing to work through minor issues which we help them with. Most of the dogs just need a new home. People move and cannot take their much loved pet with them, or their owner may experience a major health issue, or the owner passes away leaving their four legged loved one behind.

Rapids Little Dog Rescue works closely with the South Wood County Animal Shelter in helping place small dogs into forever homes. Many times we get a heads up on dogs coming to the shelter, large and small, before the general public is aware that a dog is in need of a new home. By placing these small dogs into foster homes right away prevents undue stress of being around large barking dogs.

Foster Homes Needed
We are in need of people that are willing to open up their hearts and homes to make a difference in a little dog's life. If you would like to be a part of this rewarding experience please contact South Wood County Humane Society at swchs@swchs.com or phone 715 423 0505. You do not need to be an authority on dogs to foster. These dogs love unconditionally anyone that will show them affection If you are not able to foster there are many ways you can help these dogs. Just telling friends, family, and neighbors of us will help one of these babies find a new home.

We will accept donations of any type. Any old dog items that you may no longer require such as beds, bowls, leads, toys, tennis balls etc are always welcome since some of the dogs destroy these!

On behalf of the dogs thank you.
