This month's charity spotlight organization, Snooty Giggles, was nominated by one of our Facebook followers.
This 100% volunteer, foster home based rescue
located in Middle, Tennessee was started 10 years ago as a grassroots organization by a husband and wife team. Shawn South-Aswad and her husband began fostering a few dogs and slowly grew the organization into a team of approximately 50 active foster families and what is now Snooty Giggles.
The rescue's original focus and passion
has been to help senior dogs, medical needs dogs, and hospice rescues
which still account for approximately 80% of their intakes. They have also expanded to accept "all needs" dogs. Due to the special needs of many of their rescues, some dogs are with their foster families for a long time while they become healthy enough for their forever home. As you can imagine, the cost of fostering these special needs dogs can add up quickly.
Snooty Giggles does a great job of highlighting their available dogs
. To help ensure the dogs find their forever home, all dogs adopted through SGDR receive a free six-week session of obedience classes
and a lifetime of behavior support
through their Project REWARD program.
The Project REWARD program sponsored by Snooty Giggles Dog Rescue is a community outreach program that offers free and/or affordable obedience training to help dog owners who are struggling with behavior problems.
This program was founded to help keep dogs with their families
instead of owners who end up frustrated and surrender their dogs to shelters.
It is great to see an all-foster home based rescue started by one family grow into this great organization. They are an inspiration to us all. Since they do not have a facility or overhead costs, your donations go directly to helping animals in need
. SGDR provides its foster families with all supplies needed for fostering including vet expenses, food, crates, toys, collars, leashes, and treats. Please consider joining us in donating to help this rescue. Every little bit helps
