A LITTLE BIT OF SNUGGLES DOG RESCUE, INC.
(A NO-KILL SHELTER)
We can now accept online donations! Visit http://www.crowdrise.com/snuggles to make a donation today!
Stay tuned for our next Adopt-A-Thon date at PetSmart in Monroeville, where you may just meet your new best friend!!!
Note to adopters: Lassie and Cleo and Rin Tin Tin and Toto don't show up in rescue. We don't get the elegantly coiffed, classically beautiful, completely trained, perfectly behaved dog. We get the leftovers. Dogs that other people have incompetently bred, inadequately socialized, ineffectively "trained," and badly treated.
Most Rescue dogs have had it. They've been pushed from one lousy situation to another. They've never had proper veterinary care, kind and consistent training, or sufficient company. They've lived outside, in a crate, or in the basement. They're scared, depressed and anxious. Some are angry. Some are sick. Some have given up.
But we are Rescue and we don't give up. We never give up on a dog. We know that a dog is a living being, with a spirit and a heart and feelings. Our dogs are not commodities, things, or garbage. They are part of sacred creation and they deserve as much love and care and respect as the next Westminster champion.
So please, please don't come to rescue in the hopes of getting a "bargain," or indeed of "getting" anything. Come to Rescue to give, to love, to save a life — and to mend your own spirit. For Rescue will reward you in ways you never thought possible. I can promise you this — a rescue dog will make you a better person.

THE ONLY ANIMAL WITHOUT A CHANCE IS THE ANIMAL WHOSE CHANCE IS TAKEN AWAY.
"Old dogs, like old shoes, are comfortable. They might be a bit out of shape and a little worn around the edges, but they fit well." - Bonnie Wilcox 'Old Dogs, Old Friends'
WHO WE ARE
A Little Bit of Snuggles Dog Rescue is a NO-KILL, 501(c)3 non-profit, all volunteer organization that rescues homeless dogs. The dogs are kept in a home environment and receive all necessary veterinary care. Each dog gets to interact with people as well as other dogs throughout the day. The goal is to assure a loving and permanent home for each of our dogs.
95% of our dogs come from shelters that are full to capacity and need our assistance, many of which are not no-kill. Under some circumstances, we do take owner surrenders, but only on a case by case basis. We do, however, ALWAYS take back a dog that has been adopted from us if the owner can no longer care for it.
ADOPTING A FRIEND
In order to adopt you must be 21 years or older, have identification with your current address and provide a veterinary reference.
All of our dogs are current on vaccinations which include:
- Adenovirus 2
In addition to being vaccinated, our dogs are spayed/neutered, heartworm tested and are on Frontline Plus (flea and tick prevention) and Heartguard Plus (heartworm prevention).
Since we are based out of foster homes, please call to make an appointment if you are interested in adopting. Thank you!
Donations are always greatly appreciated, whether it is monetary, food, blankets, leashes or toys. Without your donations we would not be able to rescue these dogs. Thank you in advance for all of your support.
VOLUNTEERING AND FOSTERING
Like all rescues, we are always in need of foster homes and volunteers to help us with adoption events. If you are willing to open your heart and/or home to a dog in need please contact Cindy at firstname.lastname@example.org. For information on volunteering for special events, please contact Carey Knapp at animalLvr309@aol.com
Our newsletter is published 4 times per year and is full of interesting information and success stories! If you would like to receive our newsletter or would like us to drop some off at your place of business, please send an e-mail with your name and address/place of business to animalLvr309@aol.com
