Squishy Faces Custom Pet Themed Apparel Rescue Information

Rescue Information

Let's face it, pets are near and dear to our hearts. They make us smile, they make us laugh, and they give us comfort just when we need it the most...

Too many times shelters are fighting for the funds to keep these wonderful companions healthy and happy until the next loving family arrives to share their day with them.  That is where we step in.  We set aside a portion of our profits and select shelters in need of funds. Then we donate to them to ensure their thankless job continues.  It can be any reputable shelter from exotics to domesticated animals.  Geographic location does not matter. 

If you or someone you know has a 501c3 rescue in need, please feel free to email us at info@shopsquishyfaces.com for applications or assistance. Rescues are selected on a monthly basis, and you can only be the featured rescue once per the calendar year before reapplying for the next year.

We are going to have a bit of change coming for the monthly rescues, we are looking at having an affiliate group for the rescues if any rescue becomes an affiliate they will earn 30% of sales on their affiliate link.  With this new program, we can help a diverse group of pets who all need help.

To date, we have donated over $50,000 to rescues.

From Aug 2018 forward we are going to change how we support rescues! We will now have 12 that we support for 4 months the first 12 are!

Fetch A Friend Rescue was started April 2015. Owner Jamie Hughes has been in love with dogs since she received her first one 25 years ago at age 6. In 2005 Jamie started volunteering at the local animal shelter and began to spend every day of the week there working with the dogs and running their website.

In 2011, she and a friend saw the need for more facilities for dogs in need of homes and they began 2nd Chance Dog Rescue. From March 2011-December 2014 they rescued and placed over 750 dogs in their forever homes. Rescue and caring for dogs are Jamie’s passion and she couldn’t imagine not being able to work with them on a daily basis. With the support of her family and friends Jamie chose to pursue her dream on her own and opened a new boarding facility and rescue in Seneca Falls, NY.

Opened in February 2016, Phoebe's K9 Resort offers dog and cat boarding, doggy daycare, and grooming. It is also home to Fetch A Friend Rescue.

Jamie lives in Seneca Falls with her 6 dogs, Abby, Tucker, Phoebe, Lily, Fritz & Rocky. 

Volunteer and Adoption Coordinator Kate Larham has been with us since day one caring for the dogs every day of the week, all while maintaining a full time job. Kate is our prime caregiver, transporter, enrichment leader, adoption facilitator and an advocate for the voiceless. Kate is instrumental to the rescue and loves every dog as though they were her own. She ensures each dog is spoiled beyond measure and shown love every day they are with us. Kate lives in Geneva with her husband and 3 dogs, Sheldon, Leena & Max.
