Rescue Spotlight: SNARR

Special Needs Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation just wants to save animals. They take in some of the more dire cases but through a lot of passion, hope and networking, they save a lot of dogs and place them in loving homes. Read the inspiring story of Robin Menard, founder and director of SNARR, and her team’s mission to save animals.

When & Why did you start?

I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t involved with rescue efforts, whether it was helping my mother gather up stray cats or sneaking into places I shouldn’t have been to drag away dogs fought the night before. I have been in law enforcement, and I’ve worked at animal shelters; I constantly picked up strays, whether they’re dogs or cats, goats or pigs, turtles or the occasional possum. So it was a natural evolution to expand my passion into an organization with a national reach.

What’s different about your rescue?

Sadly I see a lot of rescues who mainly take in the dogs that are the most likely to be adopted. The cutest ones, or the puppies, or the pure bred, leaving behind the pits that are harder to adopt out , or the ones with disabilities, behavioral issues, congenital disorders, injuries and so on. SNARR mainly focuses on these cases, the ones least likely to pulled by other rescues that have extreme medical issues or deformities or require tone and training before placing them. Our dogs very rarely go straight into foster homes due to these issues and come to me first for rehabilitation before being placed into foster homes awaiting adoption.  I also see a lot of rescues who seem to “compete” with each other and think of rescue as more of a Competition. SNARR works hard to stay away from the drama of rescue and focus on the dogs not concerning ourselves with what the others are doing. If we see a dog in a thread that we was interested in pulling be rescued by another rescue we are happy to see it is placed as long as it’s a good rescue.  Because we rescue, foster and adopt out to approved homes nationwide we have established an awesome team of volunteers located throughout the U.S. that assist in transports over-nighting and so on. read more…

Rescue Spotlight: Joseph’s Legacy

Compassion is a spark that ignites contagious action. Dog rescuers live by this every day and it was no different when Joseph was brought into Meg Melampy’s life. Joseph was in need and quickly a community grew around him to help, but the best part of this story is that it doesn’t stop with Joseph. As a new organization, Joseph’s Legacy is taking action for other dogs in their area since Josephs rescue in September. Read more about Joseph’s Legacy below.

BestBullySticks.com recently had the great honor to donate $2,000 to Joseph’s Legacy during our ThanksGiveaway 2013 Charity Photo Contest.

When & Why did you start?

We started our Facebook mission (Justice for Joseph) on September 28, 2013 when Joseph was first rescued. It started out of the love to share his story and to let the world know that we are tired of weak animal abuse laws.  We immediately saw the need to help many abused animals and work on the laws. Then, Joseph’s Legacy was born. We started helping saving lives, generating donations not only for ourselves, but for other organizations. Our supporters are always wiling to help.

What’s different about your rescue?

Joseph’s Legacy strives to regain hope and respect for all animals. We educate the public of the reality of animal welfare and lack of awareness.  We team with rescues and shelters to save lives.  We try to help on many different areas of animal welfare from changing laws, saving lives, education, & advocacy. read more…

Rescue Spotlight: Paws for Seniors

In a recent PetFinder study, “less-adoptable” pets stay in animal shelter four times as long as other pets. Sadly, 24% Animal Rescues say senior pets are the number one looked over animal in shelters. (source) BestBullySticks knows that many people are missing out on great companions, but there is one rescue in Virginia making a difference in the lives of senior pets—Paws for Seniors.

We recently spoke to Brenda Scamoredella, co-founder of Paws for Seniors about how this great rescue got it’s start and stories of some very inspiring dogs.

When & Why did you start?

Paws For Seniors formed in the fall of 2011 following the collapse of a rescue group in the area that the founders were fostering 3 senior dogs for. Daiquiri, Artie and Princess were transferred to the care of Paws For Seniors. In January 2012, Paws For Seniors was incorporated in the state of Virginia as a non-profit organization focused on caring for and finding homes for senior dogs and cats, aged seven years and older where they can live out their golden years with dignity and love through rescue, foster, adoption, and hospice.

Like Daiquiri, who after 19 years of dedication and love to her family, Senior Dogs and Cats become homeless every day for any number of reasons; we knew we had to help by bringing awareness that Senior Pets are not to be overlooked! They deserve a chance to thrive and prove that they can live as active, loving, dedicated family members. Every day we work to give Senior Pets a chance to LIVE out their GOLDEN years with dignity and love. read more…
