Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Our mission is giving hope to the hopeless. Snarr northeast focuses on those animals least likely to receive another chance based on physical disabilities, illness and varied medical needs. We strive to prove these animals in need have the desire for a second chance, the will to survive and the ability to heal and thrive with a renewed spirit. Through our efforts, we hope to inspire our shelters and the public to view these animals with the same confidence and compassion. Our goal is to educate our communities and supporters and implement necessary programs and change that will help to end the needless killings in shelters across our country

Direct beneficiaries per year: 1500+ animals

Programs: Snarr northeast pulls dogs from high kill shelters all over the country with a focus on the local nyc, nj and surrounding area shelters. Although the title speaks for itself as special needs, snarr also saves perfectly healthy dogs as well. The rescue is not picky, as long as they can figure out a safe, responsible home for an animal to be placed. Big, small, thin, fat, young, old, healthy or sick. . . Snarr will do their best.

I saw an advertisement on Facebook for call for an emergency foster .I was home during the pandemic so I decided to give them a call and tell them I was available .I got the cutest little dog -she stayed for a week and then her new owners came to get her They had met her at one of the adoption events Snarrnortheast does They came to my home so I got to meet them and see how happy they were to be adopting her . I felt so happy about being able to provide a home for a dog while she waited for her forever family . I took a second foster 2 months later. She was harder as a foster as She had a lot of energy and wanted to play 24/7
She was a also a bigger dog than I was used to .Again even though I struggled a bit, It was so rewarding to give this dog a home love , toys ,food . When you foster and provide for a dog , the rescue then can save another pup . The rescue will provide all you need if you can only offer the home So don’t let that deter you from becoming a foster She was super loving and smart . She was with me for 6 weeks Then the perfect adopters came through. I cried when I left her but knew her new family was perfect for her and her energy level . I was just going to miss my shadow People say “oh I don’t know if I could do that “I won’t be able to take a dog and then give it up but when you foster a dog you go in knowing that you’re just helping his dog out and you get attached but it’s different -you know that it’s going to the right people you’ll get to meet them n to talk to them
the rescue has already approved them
Fostering really is truly amazing thing you can do. You are always welcome to keep
Them if you truly fall in love with your foster
The people of the rescue are pretty selfless .I mean there is a lot of hard work that goes into deciding which dogs you can rescue -transporting them here from the south - finding a foster then finding
a permanent home . Keeping and feeding
The rescues that remain at center .Providing shots and meds to all the fosters and unbeknownst to them sometimes the fosters come in sick or injured and now they have to pay for unexpected medical treatment. They never say no they won’t help This rescue already accepts medical needs dogs and so they’re using donations to save and give better lives to a lot of animals . So if you can donate. this would be a well deserving and appreciative group and you can be assured the funds are being used for GOOD
5 months later. I just took another foster Each time is a different experience
And gets easier You realize how easy it is. If you love dogs become a foster
These dogs really just want to feel safe n loved. You can go to work , conduct your life and still have time to be a foster .
3rd time is definitely the charm for me

We adopted 15 year old Lucky in February, 2022. He had been found in San Antonio wondering the streets looking like the Elephant Man. He was pulled from the shelter by an angel who recognized his gentle soul and knew SNARR NE would help. SNARR NE transported him to NY and got him the medical care he needed. He had a massive cancer removed from his face. Wonderful SNARR NE fosters in Connecticut nursed him through his healing process.
Lucky is old, arthritic, has heart problems, is deaf in the one ear he has left, and ....is a very happy boy. He has many beds and a couch to sleep on. He has a little sister, Ella, to explore his 1/2 acre fenced yard. Good friends came and built him a ramp to avoid the difficulties of stairs. Lucky plays with bones and gets massages.
SNARR NE and his foster and his San Antonio savior all stay in touch. Even his surgeons reached out. SNARR NE continues to help with his medications. So we are not his only family.
Though Lucky is not cancer free and he isn't getting younger he is loved and in his forever home. We are grateful to SNARR NE for seeing what so many people passed by for so long.
There will always be a place for a SNARR NE dog here.

We were looking for a couple months to adopt another dog for our Noli. We had just lost our 15 year old Violet to cancer a month before we moved to our new home and new state. A lot of the dogs we were interested in got adopted by others. I saw Milo on SNARR's page. He was larger than I had hoped for but I could not ignore that face! And the description of his personality told me he was the one. We arranged to meet him with his foster mom at a park. He and Noli ran around a bit but I think Milo was very tentative. Who could blame him. We spent some time with him and asking questions and decided it felt right. His foster mom was surprised we wanted to take him home right then and there! It was definitely the right decision. The two dogs took to each other right away and spend multiple times a day running around and playing with each other. Milo is the sweetest dog and so well behaved. We are so thankful to SNARR and Milo's foster family for rescuing him and taking such great care of him until we could bring him home! The work they do is invaluable to so many other dogs and families.

I’ve been in rescue many many years. I helped run a rescue , and ultimately I came to work for SNARR NE because their mission is in alignment with my values and the care the animals receive is top priority! Courtney is the best their is. She goes above and beyond and is so positive and smart and generous. I am a foster fail of SNARR NE special needs dog Jack. He is blind and paralyzed and has seizures. Courtney has done everything for this dog to thrive. He has the very best vet care and therapy. He has a custom wheelchair and now he’s living with my family. We adore him and we adore Courtney! Jack is part of our family now and he is also a conversation piece when you see him coming down the street in his wheelchair! This rescue represents the very best of any animal rescue. I encourage everyone to volunteer and donate and adopt from this rescue!

We adopted our beautiful Molly (formerly known as Pebbles) on June 11 and could not be happier with her and the entire adoption process. Both Joann and Joan made the process painless right from the beginning. After submitting the paperwork, we were contacted the next day from Joann, a lovely woman and fellow dog lover. We spoke at length on the phone and were approved the very next day and were able to formally adopt Molly the following day. Joan, the amazing angel foster mom, took wonderful care of Molly and we all had a great visit when we went to pick Molly up. Both women have made themselves completely available to us since the adoption in case we had any questions. It is obvious they love what they do and the animals they rescue and foster. SNARR Animal Rescue Northeast Inc would definitely be our go-to rescue if we were ever to look for another pup. We can’t say enough good things about them. The transition for all has been painless and Molly has been the perfect fit for us. Thank you, SNARR for being the angels you are and for helping us complete our family ... we are so blessed!!

So proud to be a SNARR foster Mom!
I have fostered over 50 puppies for SNARR, and every one of these babies would not have made it without being taken into the SNARR program. EVERY PUPPY now has a wonderful, loving home.
All of SNARR’s awesome volunteers, Adoption Coordinators, and Transport Drivers, are all dedicated and loving humans who share the same goal - every life matters and every dog or cat should know love and kindness.
I am committed to this organization and will keep helping to fight the good fight.

I donate to this rescue because they take in the strays that noone wants to or can help. They are dedicated and caring and deserve all of the help that they can get to take care of the poor unfortunate creatures that they encounter.

We have adopted twice from SNARR. I cannot begin to detail how meticulous these wonderful folks are in finding the best possible homes for rescues.

Parker came to us from Texas in 2020, and will be joined in another week by Lucy from North Carolina. We fell in love with Lucy, but unable to take her until the first week in July. A SNARR volunteer brought Lucy to our home for a "meet & greet" with us and Parker, which went very well.

Her wonderful foster mother agreed to keep her for us until we could take her. Foster mom and I text each other regularly and I know that Lucy is getting such loving care until she comes to her forever home with us.

If you want to adopt from SNARR, get ready for some intense paperwork! They are very detailed, as well they should be. Even though we adopted in 2020, we had to fill out the application again when we were considering a 2nd pup. Well worth the time and effort and peace of mind knowing that the SNARR folks are truly looking out for the best interests of everyone, pups included.

I doubt the cost of adoption begins to cover all the expenses incurred. Transportation, vaccines, spay/neuter, crates, food, bowls, leashes, collars .... the list goes on and on. Some pups need surgery for the inhumane treatment they endured before being rescued. I am sure I am only touching on a small number of expenses.

We send donations over the course of the year, as we are able. A small offer of thanks for our much loved Parker, and soon, Lucy. A small price to pay for the joy they bring us.

In the photos: Parker is the long-legged girl with the biggest heart of any rescue we've ever brought home and Lucy is the sweet little girl.

We fostered, and ultimately adopted, our beautiful Luna from SNARR in 2021. From the outset, they were committed to making everything as easy and straightforward for us (and Luna!) as possible with immediate assistance and advice whenever requested. They are a wonderful organization dedicated to rescuing and finding homes for dogs from across the country. I cannot recommend them enough if you are looking to volunteer, foster, adopt or donate!

I have been a donor for years. While I do not have a personal experience with the rescue, I admire the work they do and the care they provide to the most vulnerable and needy animals. The rescue is amazing and a fantastic resource.

I am adopting a heartworm-positive, beautiful dog, from SNARR. She was found emaciated in Texas, pregnant with 10 puppies. All the puppies were adopted. My dog is now being fostered for SNARR by a wonderful family. They have taught the dog to walk on a leash and house-trained her. Their care and training of the dog has made it possible for me to adopt her. SNARR has done a wonderful job.

As a volunteer for SNARR, I can say with the utmost certainty that this rescue is more than a rescue. SNARR is a family of hard working and dedicated people who have a bursting passion to save, adopt, and foster dogs and cats. We strive to place these dogs with new families that will lead them to a happy and successful forever life. We are with our adopters for life, always checking in and being a friendly face in the rescue world.

Picky Picky Picky is what I LOVE about SNARR-Northeast rescue. They are finding the best homes for both the adopters and the animals in their program. Anyone that knows the heartbreaking reality of the millions of unwanted pets, should realizes their screening process is to ensure their animals get the homes they deserve. THANK YOU SNARR-NORTHEAST

Picky, picky, picky! This rescue actually declined my adoption request because I didn't get my current dog a heart worm test. I saw no mosquitoes last summer, and it's a rare disease in my area. I happen to be capable of deciding what is best for my dogs. I recently lost a rescue dog that came to me in poor health, and as I took extremely good care of her, she didn't leave me until she was almost 16 years old. My current rescue is 10, came from a high-kill "shelter," and in excellent health. I try to recommend rescues to people, and they often respond that the rescues are far too picky, which I am in agreement as far as this one is concerned.
