SNORT is an all-volunteer registered 501(c)3 non-profit rescue based in the Northeast. Its purpose is to rescue brachycephalic dogs (mostly French Bulldogs, Boston Terriers, Pugs, and English Bulldogs) from shelters and owners who can no longer keep them, and place them into loving homes. We believe all dogs should be given a chance and fair evaluation. Man's best friend sometimes does not communicate in ways which we would like, and we pride ourselves for taking the time to understand their needs. Through education, training and matching dogs to the right homes, we hope to reduce the number of brachycephalic dogs that are euthanized unnecessarily. - See more at: http://www.snortrescue.org/

A fundraising walk designed to support thousands of individuals and families living with Primary Immunodeficiency across the U.S. Participants can organize a team, join an existing team, or register as an individual. All proceeds benefit IDF. Registration is available for walkers and non-walking supporters. All are welcome!

Primary immunodeficiency diseases, or PI, affect children and adults who are born with an immune system that is either absent or severely compromised, which leads to a greater risk of infections. In most cases, there is a pattern of chronic infections before PI is suspected. There are more than 200 types– some are relatively common and others are quite rare and while there are approximately 250,000 people diagnosed with PI in the U. S., thousands more go undetected.
