Foster Banner02


SMAWL is in significant need of foster homes and financial sponsors to help save dogs at risk in local shelters.  We are seeking to expand beyond our planned capacity and budget in order to save more lives.  Each additional dog we save needs a foster home and $300 to sponsor medical intake fees.

SMAWL is a nonprofit rescue that partners with local shelters to transfer dogs in need to our organization.  We provide medical care to get the dogs up to date on vaccines, heartworm tested, spay or neutered, de-wormed and microchipped.  All dogs are then placed into loving adoptive homes.

You can save a life!
