• After being given a Snuggle, a frightened and/or difficult to handle animal is able to become calm. This calming effect gives the animal and the caregiver time to learn how to handle the situation. We believe that this has saved the lives of many newly-sheltered animals.
  • The Snuggles Project brings people together -- with time to chat, time to learn, and time to teach. Getting together to make Snuggles is fun. Join or create a local group today. Share your life and your love of animals and make new friends.
  • Snuggles make the shelters look and feel more homey. Animals are more at ease when visitors are more at ease. This makes for better matching and better adoption results. With the added bonus of "Love" stitched into each and every Snuggle, good things can happen.
  • The Snuggles Project brings generations together in a fun and giving way. With this common ground, we believe that we are making the world better for humans too.

All I need is a Snuggle and a place to call home.
