Littlest Angels Pet Sanctuary (LAPS) is a small, privately run 501(c)(3) shelter specializing in small breed dog and domesticated parrot rescues in in Bellevue, Ohio and Petersburg, Michigan. All of our rescues (or "little angels" as we call them) are fostered inside homes where they are loved and treated as members of the family.

If you are interested in one of our little angels, you must complete an adoption application. A personal reference, vet reference, home visit and fenced in yard are required for all adoptions. When LAPS receives your application, it will be reviewed along with all other applications received for that particular little angel. LAPS will make a determination based on the best interest of the animal, not on a "first come/first serve" basis. If you are approved to adopt, LAPS will contact you to continue the adoption process. There will be a final adoption contract to complete & sign as well as an adoption fee to cover LAPS' expenses for the little angel. The adoption fee will include all vetting (spay/neuter, up to date vaccinations, etc.) prior to adoption. To obtain an adoption application, please contact the appropriate location's coordinator (Sherry in Bellevue, OH or Deb in Petersburg, MI) as listed on the little angel's Petfinder profile.

Pet adoption fees only cover a fraction of the costs incurred by LAPS during rescuing, caring for and rehoming animals in need and we rely on private donations, volunteers and foster homes to help fund our continued rescue efforts. No donation or gesture is too small and is greatly appreciated. Just $5 can feed one of our little angels for several days... fostering just one pet makes all the difference for that angel... one blanket keeps a fostered angel warm and comfortable every, single night! If you are able to help LAPS in any way, please contact Sherry or Deb at the numbers listed at the top of this page.

     ♥  FOSTER!
Having an adequate number of foster homes is crucial to LAPS' ability to rescue animals in need and not have to turn any of them away. We are always in need of new fosters for our little angels while they wait for their furever homes. Fostering is a great alternative for those who aren't able to make a commitment to adopt a pet for life or those who just want to feel good about helping a rescued angel. LAPS will pay for or provide all the necessary tools needed for fosters to care for the angel in their home (such as vet costs, food, training pads, etc.). Fosters are responsible for providing a safe, secure, nurturing, stable environment while providing day-to-day care for the animal. Fosters are also responsible for making sure the angel in their care attends any scheduled LAPS' adoption events. But most importantly, fosters must provide the angel with an abundance of love and compassion. If you have room in your heart, home and schedule, and are interested in becoming a foster, please contact Sherry or Deb at the numbers listed at the top of this page for immediate consideration and additional information.

     ♥  DONATE!
LAPS is always in need of the following items for the little angels in our care. Because LAPS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit shelter you are able to take a tax deduction for your contributions! If you are able to donate any of these items, please contact Sherry or Deb at the phone numbers listed at the top of this page..
  • Monetary donations to help cover our costs associated with vetting and day-to-day care for our rescued angels.
  • Food (new, sealed adult and/or puppy dry dog food)
  • Toys (new, durable and enticing for the dogs)
  • Leashes and collars (new or like new condition)
  • Bedding (new or gently used blankets, sheets, etc.)
  • Towels (new or gently used)
  • Plastic or wire dog crates (new or good/usable condition - no fabric crates, please)
  • Gas cards
     ♥  SPONSOR!
It has happened to all of us at one time or another... you've fallen in love with one of LAPS' little angels available for adoption but you aren't able to adopt or foster. You still want to do something special for that angel, but what? You're in luck! You can still help that angel who captured your heart by being a "virtual" foster and sponsoring him/her. Simply select the "Sponsor Me" option within that angel's Petfinder profile and make a donation in its honor to help provide for its care while (s)he is awaiting its furever home. Donations are collected by the Petfinder Foundation and kept for our shelter. If the little angel you're virtually fostering is adopted before your donation is fully used for its care, the remainder will be utilized to care for another angel still in our care while waiting for his/her furever home.
