Sammie's Friends

The mission of Sammie's Friends is to provide medical care for the animals at the Nevada County Animal Shelter, making them adoptable, and to support other disadvantaged animals in Nevada County that without help would otherwise be euthanized to end their suffering.

We accept donations to pay for medical care for the animals. Many times the animals have conditions which keeps them from being adopted, yet the condition is not considered an emergency because it is not life-threatening (i.e. demodectic mange, broken legs and hips, amputation of legs, respiratory infections, foxtails in the ear and nose, and many more conditions). If these medical issues are not cared for, no one will adopt them because of the condition they are in.

Who are Sammie's Friends? Sammie's Friends include all of you who contribute your time, effort, money, ideas, enthusiasm and most of all, your compassion for the animals. Sammie's Friends would not exist without you. You are Sammie's Friends. Thank you so much for your support.
