Our Featured Pet...Daisy!!

Daisy is currently fostered by SMART founder Denice DeVito.

Daisy is a mature White German Shepherd found as a stray. She has perfect hips and lovely gentle manners with her people.

Daisy needs a fence and should be the only dog in the house since she was alone for so long. She is doing much better with bigger dogs but gets a little uppity with the little ones. She doesn't mind cats though. She also spent most of her life on her own fending for herself and learning to CLIMB!!! So she needs a good fence!

She only has nubbins for teeth because her only toys used to be rocks, so she needs a human who will love her and keep her safe. She loves to sleep in the bed and absolutely LOVES her squeaky toys. She loves long walks and the water. Don't let her age fool you, she has a lot of spunk in her and so much love to give.

She travels well in a car, is crate trained, heartworm negative, spayed, has current shots, and is an intelligent and loyal pet.

If you are interested in meeting, fostering or adopting Daisy, contact SMART at 612-708-7242 or by email at

Aboout S.M.A.R.T.

S.M.A.R.T. was founded in 2008 and is an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff. Our purpose is to provide safe haven for abandoned and homeless pets, to provide front-line rescue of companion animals impacted by natural, technological, or other disaster, and to facilitate community education programs with respect to disaster mitigation, personal responsibility, and the plight of homeless pets.

S.M.A.R.T members have vast experience in pet rescue and disaster response, and gained most of our experience during nine months spent performing animal rescue in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. It was that life-changing event and the efforts of many that led to the formation of S.M.A.R.T.

It is our promise to adhere to the highest standards of professionalism, to exercise the most responsible stewardship over the animals in our care, and to act with honesty and integrity in all business we conduct.

Our goal is to become one of the most capable animal rescue organizations in North America. It takes great people, often in great numbers, to do great things. If you share our vision, we invite you to join us in our efforts by either donating your time as a volunteer, foster family or by becoming one of our generous providers of financial support.

On behalf of S.M.A.R.T. and animals everywhere, thank you…
