About Us


Snooty Giggles Dog Rescue is a foster based 501(c)(3) rescue group whose mission is to help alleviate the pressures put upon area shelters and their euthanasia rates by pulling dogs at risk into our program, placing them in foster homes, and preparing them both physically and emotionally for their forever homes. We are an all breed rescue and do not discriminate against size, breed, age, or physical condition. Though we bring in a vast variety of dogs in need, our passion is taking in seniors, special needs, medical needs, and hospice.



SGDR began over 10 years ago as a grass roots organization when founder Shawn South-Aswad and her husband began taking in a few dogs here and there who found themselves in need of a place to lay their head until they could find their own home. As time passed they developed a love and special touch with seniors and medical needs dogs that needed more one on one attention and were being overlooked by the general rescue population. As their children grew older and schedules became more flexible, Shawn decided that it was time to slowly grow the rescue into what is now Snooty Giggles, originally funding it solely with the profits earned from her art and furniture business, Silo Studios. One extra foster at that time, has now turned into a foster team of approximately 50 active foster families (both regular and temp) who open up their homes to these amazing dogs, of all sizes, age, and ability and “raise them like their own” until the perfect match of a forever home is found.
