Outreach Education Advocacy

Rescue is not just about finding homes for unwanted dogs. It’s also about identifying the needs of the community and implementing resources and educational programs to help both humans and companion animals. Little Feet Big Heart Rescue strongly feels that outreach, education and advocacy is as important as rescuing homeless animals. We strive to support our community through programs and resources that make a true impact on the well being of animals.

Little Feet Big Heart Rescue, Inc. has been strongly involved in educating Florida citizens regarding the importance of spaying and neutering in order to help control the animal population within the state.  We also speak regularly to citizens regarding how important proper pet care is and do all that we can to help pets in need.
