What We Do

Little White Dog Rescue (LWDR) is a non-profit dog rescue organization that consists entirely of foster homes rather than a shelter. Founded in 2007, LWDR originally began as a West Highland Terrier rescue group – thus the name! These days, we take in small dogs of all kinds. Like all rescue groups, our goal is to find loving, forever homes for small dogs who have been displaced through no fault of their own. Our dogs come to us from city shelters, commercial breeding facilities, and owners who can no longer care for them.

We are an all-volunteer group deeply committed to offering a chance at a good life to the dogs in our care. We provide a loving foster home, medical care, and quality food to each of our little dogs and begin training them to become beloved house pets. As a final gift to each of our dogs, we work diligently to make the best match for them with a new family.

Little White Dog Rescue is a 501c3 organization that relies solely on donations to fund our mission to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home small dogs. There are many other ways individuals and corporations can help us in our mission! Please see the Volunteer Page to find out how you can become involved with LWDR.

Interesting Info
  • In 2023, we helped 489 rescue dogs find homes!
  • On average, we receive 100 adoption applications per month.
  • We are 100% volunteer run, so any donations go directly to rescue dogs who need our help.
