Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. And with tax season coming up some of you might need a tax write off. Lil Rascal's Pet Rescue could use some Christmas Magic and make a donation to Lil Rascal's Pet Rescue & Hospice Care. We have inspection coming up next month and still in need of some materials to finish the kennels. If everyone could see their way to make a donation to save more animals it will be greatly appreciated by all the animals that we will be able to care for in 2015 There seems to be no end to the little animals being dumped on the highways during this Christmas Season. We found a 4-5 week old puppy, he was shivering so bad from the cold. If your an animal lover the this is the place for you to make a donation before the first of the year.



Trash man comes Tuesday morning at 6-7:00am. Taking out trash and found a rabbit in the trash that someone has dropped off sometime tonight (Monday) after 10pm. went back out with the last box of trash and there he was....He is in a crate with rotten food no straw or nothing to keep him warm. He isn't moving too good right now he is so cold.
It s -8 degrees out there right now feels like -11 with the wind chill. Who ever you are and if you read this I want you to know you could have brought him up to the porch/door so we could have gotten him in right away, let hope he makes it now. Will post a picture tomorrow.


Hey Guy's,

Winter is here and every animal out se in the cold needs some kind of place to keep warm. If you cant find a place to keep them out of the weather find a rescue or foster home who can.


Update on Pickles, he went to a lady in Kansas for his forever home. Pickles hit the doggie lottery.


This last week we got in a baby squirrel, a woodpecker, sparrows, baby rabbits that got ran over by a lawn mower & 5 more cats. Everyone is still on the ni**le & doing well. Should be ready to be released by the 25th of May.


Hello Everyone, If you have a couple of hours to help out cause
Lil Rascal's is in need of some volunteers to help put up a privacy fence, two kennels and a partial wall. Must ha this all finished by the 26th of May. Or we could be shut down or/and fined. Any help is greatly appreciated.


Lil Rascal's Resale Store will reopen April 1, 2014 at 10:00AM-4:00PM


Lil Rascal's Pet Rescue needs your help. Were not asking for something for nothing. We have a T-Shirt Fundraiser going on and need your support to continue doing our work for the animals. We are their voice. There is so many homeless and freezing out there right now tonight and no one seems to care. We do and we want to rescue ten times the amount we have now. You can go to

For this to work, we need you to give what you can afford. If everyone simply takes, then more water is drawn from the plant than is given and it withers and dies.

Or go to our web page at

where there is a pay pal button for your donations.

The reality is, what is a lot of money to one person, is pocket change to the next.

The only “fair” thing is to ask you to give what you can. Those who can afford more, will make up for those who can afford less, and a harmony and natural balance is created. Then we all win.

A little Chihuahua named Nene survived a terrifying fall from the fifth floor balcony of his North Miami apartment. The fall left his hind legs paralyzed. He could no longer walk and run like he loved to do. Now thanks to the nonprofit Tico’s Pawket and a man in California who makes doggie wheelchairs, Nene is getting a chance to run again.

The person watching Nene accidentally left the door to the balcony open. Nene was able to go out on to the balcony unsupervised because of this, and ended up falling five stories to the ground below. Nene’s owner, Martha, got the frightening phone call that her little dog had fallen and rushed to get to him, “I went crazy. I was crying all the way down the expressway, saying ‘God, don’t let him go before I get there. Let him be alive.’” Nene was alive, but suffered a severe injury leaving his back legs paralyzed.

In order to get around Nene has to drag his back legs. Even though it was difficult to watch him struggle, Martha couldn’t bear the thought of putting him down. She was able to find help for Nene from Susan Soltero.

Soltero recently started a nonprofit called Tico’s Pawket. The nonprofit’s mission is to help pet owners who need financial help. “For any family that has an animal that has a problem, that has a medical condition, that they may not be able to financially take care of, we provide help for those people who really love their animals and want to keep them, “ Soltero said. Nene is the first animal Tico’s Pawket has helped.

Soltero got in contact with a man in California who makes wheelchairs for dogs and helped raise the funds to cover the cost of having one made for Nene. The new wheelchair has finally arrived for Nene and he’s adapting to it well. Martha is so happy she didn’t give up on her Nene and grateful for Susan’s help, “He is going to live a normal life again. Thank you. Thank you, Susan.”

Thank God for those people's donations to help this little angel...


Just wanted to say Thank You to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday. Also, Little Rebel is going into surgery on Wednesday. Keep him in your prayers cause he is awful young to have to go thru a surgery like this. On the way to take my niece home tonight, there was 15 cows got loose and was on a main highway here in Richmond. All of them but one momma and baby didn't want to go the way the others did.I wrangled a cow and got her back in after stopping traffic with my jeep sitting in the middle of the road with the flashers going. People wouldn't slow down so, I made myself a road block and made them slow down or stop. Why is people so stupid sometimes, when your out in the middle of a road and waving your arms for them to slow down or stop they seem to speed up.


We have sent our application in for an ACFA License, for the State of MO....In California you don't have to have a license like that only a city license unless you want a non-profit license. We dont have that many animals like a pound we are only trying to help injured and homeless. Now we have to come up with another $125.00 for this license. We dont sell any animal we dont get funds from the Goverment or anyone. We want to stop abuse on animals and spay & neuter any dog or cat to stop some of the breeding for people only to make money off of another little life. They don't care what kind of home the animal has as long as they get the money for them. We spay & neuter all animals found or the owner's don't want any more out of our own pocket. We had a bloodhound hit out here on Hwy. 10 and no one cared about this old guy. We took him to the vet and the first thing they asked is who was going to pay the bill? We asked them to take care of him and we would be responsible for his medical bills. The owner never came forward and needless to say he didn't make it. His leg was broken in three places, both hips were broke and he had internal injuries, so they euthanized him. Everything is about money doesn't anyone just care about the animal? They have feelings and pain just like we do, there "NOT" just a dumb animal. I've known lots of people dummer then any animal I have known in my 65 years. We have a form you fill out (before you get to take them home), we do a home visit, before you get an animal from us and if you are approved and have proper,clean and a safe home for them, and we do two follow-up visits after taking the animal home.


Excelsior Springs, MO

General information

Lil Rascal's Pet Rescue & Hospice Care is a non-profit 501(c)3 group. We find homeless animals or abused animals and get them medical attention. They stay here until they are completely healed and are ready for a new home. They have to be vaccinated, spayed or neutered before going into a permanent home. We screen the potential new adoptive parents, check their references and their home before we place them. We make sure they go to the RIGHT home that is best fits them. We receive no federal or state goverment funding we work strictly on donations or fund raisers and out of our own pocket when we can have a yard sale we need donations to operate. We need materials to rebuild a roof and wall that a storm took out the first of the year. We don't believe in putting animals in cages, or kennels their all in a loving home environment everyone gets along and loves playing with each other. We are having a fund raiser until Dec. 27th to try and raise funds Lil Rascal's Pet Rescue T-shirts are on sale for a $20 donation and all the money goes towards helping homeless animals that are in need of a home.


Lil Rascal's has a Resale store now OPEN. All money goes for the animals. Some great merchandise everything you can imagine. Leather jackets, children's and adult clothes, antiques, small appliances, collectibles, baseball cards, antique jewelry, turquoise and silver jewelry, native American items and pictures, toys, furniture and so much more.
