SNARR (Special Needs Animal Rescue Rehabilitation) was started by Robin Menard in St. Martinville, Louisiana. SNARR saves the toughest dogs to place; those with serious medical conditions, deaf and blind dogs, severely emaciated dogs, aggressive dogs…the animals that nobody else wants; the dogs that would otherwise be euthanized.

Robin is a busy mother of 5, has an extreme passion for animals, a VERY gutsy attitude and a huge heart. She grew up in an area where Pitt Bull fighting was rampant. “ I used to wait for all of the degenerates to fall asleep after a night of partying and fighting dogs, and then I would sneak into their backyards and steal the injured and petrified bait dogs to drop off at my Momma’s house.”

After years of rescuing on her own, Robin worked at a shelter. “The euthanization rate was 85%. Only 7 dogs a month, if that, were adopted out. I saw the possibility of networking these animals. I figured there has got to be someone out there who can help this dog, so I got on Facebook.” Within 3 months, Robin’s efforts resulted in an average of 110 dogs being adopted out EACH month from the shelter.

SNARR was born. The 501c3 rescue is based out of Robin’s home and she has worked very hard to build a state of the art kennel and play yard for dogs in need. “ I am a small rescue and do my best to make each dog feel as though they are my pet. I do not believe in pulling a dog from a shelter, only to put it in another shelter environment.” Not only does Robin give these dogs a place to live, but she diligently works with them, socializes them, trains them, rehabilitates them and provides whatever medical care they need.
