Special Needs Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation (S.N.A.R.R.) is an animal rescue based in White Plains, New York that specializes in saving hard-to-adopt dogs who might otherwise be euthanized at a shelter.

S.N.A.R.R. recently rescued an adorable eight-month-old puppy named Woody. The sweet pup was attacked by a dog when he was five weeks old, which made him look a little different than other puppies, but his differences are what made rescuers fall in love with him all the more!


This charming little goofball is full of puppy energy!

Woody will be making his way to New York soon, where he will be ready for his foster or forever home.



If you are interested in adopting Woody, seeing other dogs available for adoption at the rescue, or would like to make a donation to S.N.A.R.R., please visit their Facebook page for more information.

Woody’s story is a prime example of why fostering and adoption are so important. 5,500 animals are euthanized in shelters in the U.S. every single day, many for no reason other than there is not enough room to keep them. There are many things you can do to help keep euthanasia rates down. For starters, fostering and adopting are direct ways in which you can save innocent lives and clear up space in shelters for more abandoned animals. Second, remember to spay and neuter. Third, you can volunteer your time at rescues and animal adoption events to help place animals with loving foster and forever homes. And of course, donating to your favorite animal rescue organizations will also help contribute to the greater cause.

And please remember to share Woody’s sweet story with your family and friends to remind them why fostering and adopting are so valuable!
