About Second Hand Snoots
On May 8, 2010 Reilly, a male Soft Coated Wheaton Terrier, was rescued by our founder.
This was the very beginning of Secondhand Snoots Rescue.
Secondhand Snoots is a wall-less, no-kill animal rescue. We only take in as many animals as we have foster homes for. As a small group we are 100% dependent on donations; we do not receive any grant money or endowments.
All animals that come into the care of Secondhand Snoots Rescue are fully vetted before they are adopted out. This means they are microchipped, and brought up to date on all of their age appropriate shots, spayed or neutered, heartworm checked and treated if necessary, as well as treated for any other medical issues that can be treated. We absorb the cost of these medical expenses so that the adoptive homes do not have to.
Our future growth will be planned out slowly and deliberately. It is our goal to have a physical location in the future when the time is right and finances allow it.
We are licenced with the Illinois Department of Agriculture, and as of January 14, 2012 we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization as recognized by the Illinois Revenue Service.
